Although untouched since its last major overhaul in 2009—including a significant bump in displacement (1,198cc to 1,679cc) and a completely redesigned chassis—the 2020 Yamaha VMAX is proof of serious capability in an unassuming package. As for updates to the 2020 model? A blacked-out Raven Black paint scheme.

Although no engine updates were made for 2020, this beastly machine cranks out a claimed 170 hp and 100 pound-feet of torque. We’re thinking that is enough tire-smearing power for the canyon roads or the dragstrip. Don’t you?
