New Yamaha V-Max countdown
Both Yamaha Europe and the Yamaha USA "Star" Cruiser website are running a countdown banner to an unspecified event on June 4th 2008. The sound bite on the banner would appear to be the familiar V-4 roar of the V-Max. Perhaps after years of waiting, the legion of V-Max, and indeed V-4 lovers, will finally see the unveiling of a production version of the concept "new" V-Max that has done the show rounds in recent years.
Rumours persist that the shaft drive, cruiser/street dragster will sport a B-King beating amount of power. Other possibilities have included variable valve timing, and over 200hp.
Motoaus will update the on the release day
