05 tokyo show VMAX

Yamaha unveils V-Max
Yamaha has unveiled a preview version of how the new V-Max will look at the Tokyo Motor show.
The firm says the bike displayed on the stand is just an impression of how the new V-Max will look but MCN has learnt that it is pretty close to the finished thing.
The frame, suspension and engine are all real and part of a proper prototype for the V-Max, while the cosmetics, although work from solid metal on the display bike, are thought to be very similar to how they will be on the final bike.

Looks like they're removing the cruiser elements and going more for a street fighter look.

The VMax has always been a good bike!

But where is a cushy seat... I don't want to sit on that plastic/fiber crap!

I just wonder if they'll hand you the "buy back" letter with the title... or you'll have to wait a week
