Well, here’s the first photo of the 2009 V-Max via Motorcycle News. No tech details but it looks very close to the concept model on display at all of the shows. I’m breathing a sigh of relief because there was ample opportunity for Yamaha to get a little crazy with the styling, this looks like an updated version of the bad boy everybody knows.
If the performance lives up to the hype, you know, “Need 6” and all that, this could be one brutal machine. Look close up by what I hope is the tach but could be the speedometer, there’s what appears to be a shift light on the upper right. That’s a pretty clear indicator of the single intended purpose of the new V-max, … straight line, point and shoot.
Thanks for the tip, Mark!
