The name told you all you need to know: when the V-Max debuted in 1985, it was a cruiser dedicated to speed. Reviewers and consumers responded positively – it instantly won Cycle Guide’s “Bike of the Year” award and it barely had any changes for the next 22 years. It was arguably the definitive muscle bike, and Yamaha produced a limited edition in 2005 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the model.
The 20th Anniversary Limited Edition was differentiated by “Shift Red” paint with flames, blacked out wheels, red pinstripes, and a special commemorative plaque on the tank. This example has approximately 11,000 miles and it’s said to be in very good condition with a recent service. The sale includes a luggage rack, backrest, additional backrest, windshield, and aftermarket handlebar.
