YAMAHA announced the new 2009 V-max . It's appearance will never be mistaken for any other motorcycle with strong ties to the past but it’s decidedly a break from the old Max, more up to date with contours more muscular and an all new 1679cc engine with fly by wire throttle, functional air scoops and Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake (YCC-I) that shortens the intake tracts at 7000 rpm.The new VMAX is an allnew 1679cc liquid-cooled 4-stroke DOHC 65 degree V4 engine which has been designed to offer an unforgettable acceleration experience created by higher levels of power, and an imposing design. Running with bore x stroke dimensions of 90.0 x 66.0mm (compared to 76.0 x 66.0mm for the previous model VMAX) and featuring a compression ratio of 11.3:1, this visually intimidating new powerplant develops 147.2 kW (200 bhp at 9000 rpm, together with a huge torque output of 166.8 Nm (17.0 kg-m) at 6500 rpm.The VMAX's new diamond-type frame has been developed using Yamaha's industry-leading chassis design and manufacturing technology, and features an immensely strong yet lightweight structure that is made up from a variety of gravity-cast, CF die-cast and extruded aluminium sections. This innovative new design incorporates gravity-cast components for the main frame and pivot assembly, while the rear frame is made from a range of Yamaha's exclusive CF die-cast parts and extruded parts which are welded together.
