Of course, you know this bike. When the V-Max debuted in 1985, it set the tone for the future power cruiser market segment. Fast-forward to 2018, and the second-generation VMAX—already a decade old—is still plucking the same high notes, with maximum gain and reverb cranked into its figurative amp. Its 1,679cc 65-degree V-4 is anointed with such high-performance hijinks as four camshafts, 16 valves, liquid-cooling, fuel injection, and a ride-by-wire throttle. Intentionally imposing with its squat profile, fat tires, enormous engine, and fake air scoops, the musclebound VMAX surely looks like 683 pounds (the VMAX’s claimed curb weight) of machismo stuffed into a 10-pound bag.
