Yamaha Will Produce New V-Max; Open To Feedback From Potential Buyers

Apparently the new generation Yamaha V-Max, first shown as a concept bike at last year's Tokyo motor show, is now headed for production. Yamaha has opened a website, www.next-vmax.com, which contains a photo gallery of the concept bike, as well as a section where you can give Yamaha your feedback on the bike.

The most interesting question the site poses is probably "How much horsepower do you expect from the next V-Max model?" - the choices range from 140hp all the way to 210hp! There is also a question concerning the advanced features you'd like - options include traction control and ABS.

This is good news for V-Max enthusiasts (or should we say 'members of the cult of V-Max'?) who are eagerly awaiting the new bike.

tone down the side scoops and tail section, tuck in the pipes more, torn about the headlight, round or more modern brutale-like one, other than that, cool

I filled out the questionaire.

If people don't regulate themselves, others will do it for them.

It's almost already destined to be overhyped and seen as an underachiever.

It's going to be almost impossible to make the "new" V-max as big a cult classic as the original.
