8 second Turbo Vmax
One of Mad Max's creations going through the 1/4 mile at 8.5 seconds. Sorry
for the lousy picture. It was taken from my TV from an old videotape.
Yamaha VMAX VS CBR1000 Drag race 1/8 Shelor motor mile
This was my favorite race I've ever run! And I lost!! I ran a super nice
guy named Chad. I was on my 1992 Yamaha Vmax. Chad was on his Honda CBR
1000. It was such a close race. I got him out of the hole and held him off
until the last possible fractions of a second when he ran me down! I ran
7.4 seconds @ 95.48 mph. Chad ran 7.235 @ 107.09. I never saw him until
right before I crossed the line. Rock on Chad, nice race!!

2014 Yamaha VMAX Carbon edition Review / Road test
Not one of my most exciting videos I'm afraid. But couldn't turn down the
opportunity to ride one of my all time favorite bikes, the Yamaha VMAX.
1700cc V4 motor, gear and chain driven cams, ride by wire throttle, slipper
clutch, covered in lots of carbon fibre.
166nm of torque, 200bhp and 310 kgs!
Didn't have the opportunity to really test the performance of this thing
and probably never will, but it was still an absolute privilege to ride
I am not a journalist or pro racer and have no authority in riding and
testing bikes. Please don't expect a fully comprehensive road test!
Big thanks to Yamaha for lending it to me.
