Yamaha launches special edition V-Max Carbon

To mark 30 years since the arrival of the original VMAX, Yamaha's Sport Heritage range is strengthened with the introduction of the exclusive V-Max Carbon. Based on the current 1,679 cc 200 ps V4 model, this iconic special edition combines outstanding musclebike performance
with cutting edge style.

The V-Max Carbon's tank cover, front and rear fenders and side covers are all manufactured from lightweight carbon fibre - and for an even more evocative V4 growl this special edition comes equipped with upswept Akrapovic slip-on mufflers. Available from February onwards, this high-specification V-Max Carbon offers exceptional value to those customers who want to own the most iconic musclebike ever built.

Yamaha is gearing up to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the original VMAX with the unveiling of a number of exotic new Yard Built specials. The first of these is being created by German builder Jens vom Brauck, who is working on his first ever Yard Built project - and Yamaha have commissioned other custom builders to create two more Yard Built specials for delivery around June and September 2015.

Better known as JvB-moto, Jens is already well into the build at his workshops near Cologne, transforming the VMAX into something worthy of its iconic status. Yard Built fans can expect to see a stripped back creation combining modern materials with a custom twist, that also pays homage to all that was good about design in the 80's - the birthplace of the original VMAX monster muscle machine.

The standard V-Max will be offered in a new matt grey version whose pure and neutral paint finish offers the ideal starting point for those customers wishing to create their own Yard Built special. From February 2015 the standard V-Max becomes available with a significantly reduced price.

The V-Max Carbon will cost £18,749 including VAT.
The standard Matt Grey V-Max will cost £15,749 including VAT.

Both models will be available in the UK from early February 2015.
