To celebrate 30 years of this model's existence, Yamaha has brought a special edition model to celebrate this special motorcycle.

The 2015 Yamaha VMAX Carbon personifies its name by having tank cover, front and rear fenders, and side covers are all made from carbon fiber. All this Carbon Fiber goodness makes VMAX  a drag bike laden with lightweight carbon fiber. Coming up with Akrapovic slip-on mufflers for which Yamaha has teamed up with the Slovenian company’s complete the exhaust system and the changes to this beastly drag bike.

The same 1,679cc V4 engine, which pumps out 200 PS powers the VMAX Carbon.
