Hmm, Never really liked the original v-max. Cool idea but some seriously outdated hardware wrapped around all that power. The question is will it be the crazy overdog that the original was? More importantly, can I dust my friends on their V-rods and Rockets?

OK, I think I understand why the tail is like it is now. On the older bike I always thought it odd how the backend looked so low compared to the towering gas tank. It looked an odd sort of top heavy/front heavy. Looks like they're trying to get the tail end more proportioned to the height of the tank but have screwed up somewhere. I can't really think of anything much better other than change a line here and there. It looks like a puzzle to me or am I insane?



Keep the scoops the way they are. You'll need the space for the big aftermarket ones at the drag strip.



Keep the dual shocks. That's still not an old school way to do things BTW. They tried dual linkage not too long ago on a MotoGP prototype.



The brakes still have to go IMHO. Get rid of the those teeny six potters unless I'm missing something.



It being RSD forks does that not mean it's still going to be a lard ass?

BTW, IMHO, RSD ? Could someone please interpret . What does all this jargon and marketing double speak mean?

...that finds it's stuby malformed child sized mufflers a complete joke? If there was ever a bike that needs a huge Warrior styled can strapped to it's side, it should be the V-Max. And make sure it has two of them.



The engine is beautiful though.
