About Vmax

The Vmax is the only sports cruiser motorcycle in India from Yamaha. Design wise, it is one of the most attractive bikes available in India today. Its overall design language is muscular that brings out a ‘not-so-aggressive’ stance. The Vmax comes with latest electronic engine management technologies that offer very good riding experience.

The Vmax is powered by 1679cc V4 liquid-cooled engine that produces 200bhp at 9,000rpm and maximum torque of 167Nm at 6,500rpm. This engine is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox with one-down four up gear-shift pattern and is wrapped around aluminium frame. The bike features a slipper clutch, wave-style brake discs, ABS, and complete suspension adjustability front and rear.

The Yamaha Vmax is available with only black colour in India. It competes with the Ducati Diavel which is priced almost expensive by Rs 10 lakh.
