New VMax

Could you please enquire as to why the new VMax is at least £6000 overpriced, and when Yamaha intends to heavily discount as it did with the MT 01. Thanks.

Price Variations

I wish Yamaha could get their pricing sorted. UK 16,000 pounds, US$18,000, NZ$33,000. Better import 1 from the states then!

things to keep in mind when testing

hows about something many other pubilcations dont seem to get into too much. Of course lots of video, not necessarily of smokin burnouts like the US publications do. Quick focussed pointers on components of note (remote preload, YCCI, etc) just quick focussed snippets as part of the overall review if you understand what I mean. Hows about servicability (drain bolt here, adjust levers there, remove seat here, etc), sevice schedules, comprehensive presentation on it's riding dynamics and ergonomics (taller vs shorter pilot), not overly scrutinize or bash if it doesnt handle like a repli-racer but how it behaves for it's intended role, general critique on styling exercise, fit and finish and overall quality...oh an lots of video absent of any theme music please.
