Lightning-Fast Hole Shot
The V MAX SHO® has a 4.2L big-bore design that shoots it out of the hole up to 13% faster than its two stroke competitors. Its variable camshaft timing increases throttle response in the low and midranges, resulting in unbelievable acceleration, top-end and midrange punch.

Brute Strength
Its 4.2L big-bore design gives the V MAX SHO® class-leading displacement and power-to-weight ratio.

Smart Innovations
Micro-textured cylinder walls and a new intake system greatly improve fuel economy. In fact the V MAX SHO® boasts up to 12% better fuel economy than competitive two strokes, and is C.A.R.B. 3-Star Rated for Ultra Low Emissions

Lightweight Design
Yamaha engineers redesigned the cowling, engine bracket and lower engine pan, shaving every ounce of weight, without compromising durability. As a result, the V MAX SHO® is just 229KGS (dry weight)—a good 15KGS lighter than previous two stroke V MAX designs.
