    I just bought a 2009 Canadian VMax and I would like to know if there are differences between the Canadian version and the versions offered for sale in other countries.
    i.e. electrical, emissions or any other information about differences.

    The Canadian version has California emissions hardware and the "EURO" imoblizer. Speedo displays KPH obviously.

    The EURO imoblizer results in a couple of wires being swapped at the ECU.

    The California emissions hardware is just 4 hoses venting the TB's to a charcoal cannister.


    Those are the only differences I know of.

    I get it. Kinda like those youtube videos where you see a Harley chopper beat a liter bike in a street race. Obviously just a noobie rider on the liter bike. The colder Canadian air should be an advantage.
