Yamaha’s new V-Max is the most powerful production motorcycle we have ever put on our dyno.  

The new 2009 Yamaha V-Max made a whopping 184bhp at the rear tyre, and 116ft lb of torque. In numbers it has more torque than a Yamaha R6 has got in horsepower, and makes it more powerful than our previous best – the Suzuki Hayabusa with 2bhp less.

We put the bike through its paces at the infamous Santa Pod Raceway and thought you’d like to see a sneak preview of MCN’s Adam Child launching the bike off the line.

See the full test in next Wednesday’s issue of MCN.
