Fly By Wire

Star Motorcycles has announced that the 2010 VMAX will go on sale at Yamaha dealerships beginning today via an exclusive priority delivery customer order program and continue through November 30.

Making its triumphant return to the Star line last season, the all new VMAX has been a hit with the enthusiast motorcycle press and with owners alike. The 2010 Star VMAX features a striking, new Candy Red paint scheme.

The bold, next-generation interpretation of motorcycling’s iconic muscle bike, the reinvented VMAX has at its heart an all-new 1679cc four-valve, DOHC liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine that uses YCC-T fly-by-wire throttle and YCC-I variable intake length technologies, a five-speed transmission with slipper-type clutch, shaft drive and 200/50 R18 rear tire.

Just as innovative, the chassis of the VMAX is an all-new design with a lightweight aluminum frame and swing arm, fully adjustable forks and single rear shock, Brembo®-designed brake master cylinders, wave-type brake rotors, and ABS.

Visually powerful, the engine’s iconic VMAX aluminum intake covers are hand buffed by craftsmen for superb quality and individuality, testament to this bike’s unique stature.

The 2010 VMAX production is limited and deliveries are scheduled to begin in November. Each owner who purchases through the priority delivery program will receive a two-year warranty.

The 2010 Star VMAX will have a suggested retail price of $19,500.

Star has also announced special retail financing available for the 2010 VMAX, with rates as low as 5.99% APR for 72 months for qualified customers who place their order and deposit during the priority delivery period.
