I've always loved that bike, and the year of it's inception, I'll never forget the Cycle World article on it.

Muscle bike? Yeah, you'd better believe it For all the neigh-sayers, this bike is the only real muscle bike ever made. Closely in competition by the Z-1, CBX, and maybe the Kawasaki Eliminator.

I would love for them to have an 1800cc engine that won't snap the drive shaft. I don't want it chain or belt driven or injected. I love the torque and the feel of the Vboost at 6500rpm. Just my opinion on one of the loves of my life
here's a link for you:
http://www.yamaha-motor-europe.com/
note the "June 4th 2008" and the countdown indicator.
Apparantly this is when all will be revealed according to UK publications
The V-max is pretty iconic in Europe too .

I know, but they have been saying... here it is... for years now . I just won't believe it until I actually see it on the streets, or sitting next to mine
