To answer your original question, 85 is not the "fastest" year. There is no fastest year, they are all the same performance wise... except for the earlier European ones that didn't have v-boost.

Its obvious 1985- 2009 onwards . i keep reading that the motorcycle critics are saying that the vmax has a cult following , which if im being biase does . The Vmax has its faults which makes it so fucken exciting .
If an attractive big breasted blonde fell over with her legs in the air how challenging would that be .
What other bike do we honestly know that has that sort of following . Guys i know say "you spent that much on a bike thats that old" and of course when they are in the rear vision mirror they either missed a gear or didnt give it the shit . YEAH RIGHT .

As there have been no ads on tv for the gen2 09 Vmax as offically its not on the market here as all 7 yes i said 7 are gone . utube had the ad for the 09 saying "The Legend is Back"
Technically i ride the original Legend , of course i do . That would figure why Triumph, Hardley and eveyone else check it out on the side of the road .

This is why as long as Yamaha make the Vmax raguardless of its faults .
Every year is the best year .

We should all consider ourselves priviliged and worthy to ride it .

Yes I agree with all of you, 1996 is the best year because it is the first year to have all the performance upgrades like spin on filter, big forks, electronic ignition, calipers and rotors etc. Who the hell cares about the color. If color mattered, British racing green would be the "baddest" Max out there. You guys are sick.

PS Think Daytona! Its around the corner.
