Yamaha absolutely wanted to offer the most powerful production bike on the market, and they did it with the all-new VMAX
. They also wanted to continue the legend started by the original V-Max over twenty years ago, so they did go all out on the new one.

With 197 horses, a solid chassis, and top quality suspension and brakes, the all new VMAX should continue to sow fear and excitement in the souls of riders everywhere - whether they like "stylin" on the boulevard or shooting out of a corner or the lights at a dragstrip.
Fear not - the VMAX legend is in good hands!
Harley-Davidson XR1200 and Tri-Glide Ultra Classic
With looks coming straight from the evergreen XR750 flat track racer, the new XR1200
from Harley-Davidson can't miss in our market.
The dressed-up Sportster comes with 90 hp, powerful brakes, a performance tuned suspension, and generous ground clearance. Sport minded riders will now be able to cut loose in corners, on the street or better still, at a track.
The XR1200 is that good!
On a totally different note, Harley-Davidson also needed to attract new riders as well as keep those who no longer wish to ride on only wheels. The Motor Company thus launched a three-wheeler in motorcycle configuration (With a single wheel in front), the Tri Glide Ultra Classic.
Riders will now enjoy the stability of the third wheel while keeping the sound, looks and feel of a real Harley-Davidson.
Everyone wins on this one!
