the full report:
Yamaha VMAX Carbon edition on the road
Got the opportunity to ride one of my all time favorite bikes, the Yamaha
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.
