    I don't know much about the 240 rear. I think it is mostly for looks and I prefer to keep mine stock. It handles pretty good stock is and a 240 can only make it worse I would think.

    Where are you guys seeing Yamaha discontinued the Vmax? I hear this every year is it official?

    It may be true but I want to see a official announcement by Yamaha. If you google it there is a bunch of people saying it is discontinued but that was back in 2017. If it is true I'm glad to own the final year.
    Good luck with your decision .

    I bought a brand new 2018 last year and paid $16,300 plus all other fees. At the end of the day, I paid like $18,500 OTD with a 5 year warranty. $15k is the best I have heard price was and Im a very good negotiator. I wound up changing the seat, horn and added the backrest. What really pushed me to the VMax last year was the fact the blacked it out and it looks absolutely awesome. I had a Suzuki M109R and it doesnt touch this bike.

    Somebody on the star vmax forum posted up an announcement from Yamaha about the discontinuation of the vmax, it's in Japanese though. But most phones will translate it. Also why the same color is being used on the 18&19 vmax. They usually change colors from year to year. Now it's while supplies last until they are sold out. And they won't bring it back because of low sales numbers. Too much for R&D, and re-tooling.

    They may have taken it down, the thread I got it from is around a year old. I'd say with all this "Yamaha is discontinuing the Vmax" that if it wasn't true Yamaha would said something about it. But it is strange that Yamaha Motorsports themselves haven't said anything, or at least it doesn't pop up in a Google search. But there are a few different sites saying the same. Maybe Yamaha doesn't want it publicized, hard to say. It's a rare, and very unusual motorcycle that not allot of people know or fully understand what it is. It's a unicorn in a way. It's got a fan base, and a cult following. Only popular among enthusiasts. So it may not be a big deal to the "public" because they have no idea, and just don't care. So it's probably very low key that Yamaha discontinued the vmax.

    Im right behind you. listed 15,600 another another place 15,400 the rest 18k. Its 1K+ miles away. will fly down to pick up and ride her home. Im drooling as I type. I think there is something right about the 2K discount and black for the last two years.... But still not convince shes discontinue, as its been going on for about 3-4 years and im still not reading anything. Another thing I find strange no article magazine review on the bike for several years. I have no idea whats new for the 2019 or 2018 or 2017...

    Hi all, I am new to the forum. Purchased this beast last week. Its a euro vmax m/y 2016. 3200 kms on the clock. 60th year color scheme only for euro bikes. I am lucky since the first owner installed some oem goodies incl 240 kit back in 2016. So far everything feels perfect. Its a torque machine. Every gear pulls like locomotive. By the way I live in Istanbul Turkey.

    Congrats on the 60th! I gave up looking for the 60th anniversary, would have had it shipped to the states. I also prefer the Yamaha badge on the air scoops, instead of the tuning forks, they should leave that for their musical instruments.
