The Yamaha V MAX SHO. Quicker, stronger, smarter and lighter—outperforming two strokes on hole shot, displacement, fuel economy and weight.
Displacement: By using a highly advanced thermally applied plasma fusion process on the cylinder walls, the V MAX SHO has no conventional steel cylinder sleeves, yet the cylinder walls are 60% harder than steel. That means larger cylinder bores for increased displacement, resulting in more power and torque, without increasing outer cylinder dimensions.
Fastest HoleShot: Yamaha’s Variable Camshaft Timing system advances and retards the angle of the intake camshaft to dramatically increase power and throttle response in the low- and mid-rpm ranges. This feature helps provide awesome holeshot and midrange acceleration you have to feel to believe.
Outstanding Fuel Efficiency: Averaging 12% better fuel economy throughout the RPM range than our venerable 3.3-litre direct-injected 250 hp V MAX Series 2 two-stroke. Air entering the engine is routed through a single 75 mm electronically controlled throttle valve. Working in concert with the Precision Multi-Point Fuel Injection System, they ensure the precise amount of air and fuel necessary for optimum power and fuel efficiency.
