2020 Yamaha VMAX Specifications

By | May 7, 2020

The VMAX is one of the most iconic motorcycle designs Yamaha has ever created and it’s back in 2020 for more arm-stretching antics for those brave enough to ride it. Yet Yamaha has chosen to shoehorn it into the category of Sport Heritage, insinuating the mighty VMAX is getting old.

For 2020, it continues to offer the same sticker price as it did when it was released in 2008, but comes in a stealthy Matte Raven Black to help hide its silhouette when streaking across town. Of course, those looking to save a bit of money, can always opt for a used VMAX
