They'll produce it to keep up with everyone else. The insurance companies will dictate who the buyers will be. I don't remember seeing the V-Max over-represented in any crash statistics. Course I might have missed that type of info.

i test-rode a rocket iii and it was WAY fun, 'cept my feet kept parachuting off the pegs at speeds above 100 (don't tell the dealer). if yamaha can top the rocket then i think they should. screw the safety-crats and their anal-retentive hand-wringing. bring on the Big Iron.



but what i REALLY would lust for is the rocket iii engine in a touring platform. there aren't enough "Os" in "toooorque" to describe that engine, and as such it could rewrite performance standards for touring bikes. i love my K1200LT but the motor is pretty anemic. i figure a rocket would wake it up nicely, at the cost of a rather severe hike in tire spinage (and therefore replacement costs).



so bring on the rocket iii tourer and shoehorn the max into a touring bike too, while you're at it.

IT WOULD BE GREAT IF THE NEW V MAX COMES OUT IN 2006. A V MAX WITH 200HP SOUNDS JUST GREAT MR YAMAHA. DONT DELAY IT JUST BECAUSE SOME SISSIES CANT HANDLE YAMAHA POWER.

They have plenty of time to get the styling right this time. The old VMAX was ugly!

The caps lock button is on the left-middle of your keyboard. Use it. Don't abuse it. The only one authorized to post with it locked, is MRALLCAPS.

I dunno. There's an article on www.triumphrat.net about a new motorcycle accident study and how it's being funded. I think they got the article from the AMA. Everyone thought that was great, but one person pointed out that the study will inevitably address the fact that there are 150- and 200-hp bikes out there, available for a very reasonable sum ... I, for one, I'm very worried about the safetycrats...
