Default The V-Max concept web site is still running

www.next-vmax.com



I agree about the scoops - loose them or make them work. Why not offer turbo as a standard feature ?

Oh, and I suppose you don't like the new acid-filled brake lines, either ?

Default Agree "Stay the course" doesn't work.

". I would like to see more of these cruiser-sportbikes (a la Griso) on the market." kpaul thinks you are spot on. The old GPTB cruisers aren't going to sell to you young Gen Y males. Both of my daughters boyfriends say the will never buy an old fashioned cruiser. They like the Buells though

No, but I'd love that extending jaw for those pesky pedestrians.

Where were you back in the late '70s when Harley was "going under"?



Without a GMP to lead them in the proper direction THEN, just look at their Fate........

And these young men will never, ever age.

Come on now, don't be too hard on them. At least it's not another cheeseball Panhead Duoglide look-a-like. I think they'd sell a few, the FZ1 in unrepentent Anime` style and Speedy Triple, Buell and other streetfigher-esque bikes sell pretty well up here as do Bandits and your own Z-Rex, 919, Ducati Monster and what-not.



Beside, didn't our own Great Mutilated Prophylactic spout off about the return of the V-4? How can Yamaha,....er...Star go wrong? just have their Tough-guy models shave their goatee's into soul-patches, spike their hair and adopt a soulfull look instead a "dangerous 1 %'r-gonna-kick-your-ass" look and they're good to go

Well, when you ride 50 miles a week, the shear extreme amount of use allows you to build up a tolerance to the sportbike ergos; thus allowing you to perform above and beyond those your own age.



Plus, you b!tch t!ts add an extra level of cushion when you are tucked in and laying against the tank.
