Thank God they're going to continue - and update - the V-Max. Strangely fun - in a terrifying way.
If I'm not mistaken - that looks like radial-mount brakes on a conventional fork. Unusual - to say the least.
Maybe the new one will stop and turn. If I were a maker of a current power cruiser - I'd be very nervous. I doubt the new Max will be a docile, well-behaved machine. It'll be angry, fast and totally impractical for anything except slowing the Earth's rotation under acceleration.
V-Max is a bad ass looking bike...without question. new look is even better.
I'm in love with my SV...doesnt mean I'll always have it. But I do think I will always have a sporty standard or sportsbike or something like that. with that said, the V-Max on my list of possible 2nd or 3rd bikes for its looks alone.
