Yamaha VMAX Review

Ride Quality

Yamaha VMAX is a dynamic and versatile brawler able to deliver excellent performance as a cruiser and a sportsbike. Components are all tuned up for an exciting road blast. The bike is powerful and responsive to all our commands, when we came up to our senses we are riding higher than 60 mph in the city streets. Taking it to the highway we cruised from 30 mph in second gear and with just a squeeze of throttle we are quickly at 90mph. That acceleration plus its generous torque allowed us to enjoy the rest of the ride with a wide smile on our faces.
