Yamaha VMax has been recently revised by a German custom motorcycle builder. The result is a combination between a café-racer and a dragster motorcycle and its name is VMax Infrared.
Yamaha VMax Infrared, the last Yard Built series creation, was made to celebrate 30 years since the first VMax was revealed. Also, it pays a homage to Kenji Ekuan, original VMax designer, who passed away a couple of days ago.
Infrared was created by JvB-moto, a German custo builder and embodies a lot of commemorative elements. The „30 Yeas“ badge is both on the fuel tank traditional place and on the wheels.
It also has an aluminium front fender and a carbon fiber headlight. The simple dashboard is one of the elements that bring up the dragster style. VMax Infrared was also fitted with slip-on handlebars and both wheels have a carbon fibre cover. The air filter was modified and the two air intakes come from the early VMax.
The custom VMax is also fitted with a hand-made aluminium subframe and a custom-made fuel tank located under the seat. As for the exhaust system, is a 4-in-1 with a Termignoni Silencer.
Yamaha VMax Infrared shares the same color with the GP race bike used by Yamaha in 1985.
