Yamahas yard built VMAX Infrared

Yamaha pays tribute to original VMax designer Kenji Ekuan with 30th anniversary special

Yamahas yard built VMAX Infrared



HERE’S the latest ‘yard built’ special from Yamaha, a VMAX customised by Germany’s JvB-moto and named the Infrared.

Part of Yamaha’s 30th anniversary celebrations of the original V-Max, it’s a ‘dragster meets café racer concept’ according to Yamaha.

It’s got a custom-made aluminium mudguard, a carbon-fibre headlight unit integrated into the forks and carbon wheel covers.

It’s also been given clip-on bars, a carbon tank cover, and aluminium air intake scoops ‘crafted’ from those of a 1985 V-Max.

A release from Yamaha said: ‘The stunning craftsmanship continues with a handmade aluminium subframe crafted from bits of the stock unit and a custom fuel tank placed under the seat, also made from aluminium and holding the same fuel as the standard tank for an unspoiled riding experience.’

Unveiling the model, a Yamaha spokesman paid tribute to Kenji Ekuan, legendary designer of the original V-Max, who died on Saturday.

The spokesman said: ‘With the 30th Anniversary of the VMAX and the launch of the Infrared we would like to pay tribute to Kenji Ekuan for his contribution to the VMAX legend.’
