2003 Yamaha V-Max

The Mad Max of Muscle Bikes…

The Mr. Olympia of power cruisers. A 1200cc, liquid-cooled V-4 beast that’s won more Best Musclebike awards than it knows what to do with.

The truth of the matter is that, for over 17 years now, Mad Max has been wiping the boulevard with pretty much every musclebike-come-lately in terms of pure, unadulterated acceleration.
