Yamaha Announces 2020 Sport Heritage Motorcycles
Iconic Designs meet Modern Technology for Exciting Performance with Character
MARIETTA, Ga. – September 4, 2019 – Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA, today announced several 2020 model-year Sport Heritage motorcycles. The powerful VMAX cruiser, Bolt and Bolt R-Spec urban performance bobbers, and the entry-level V Star 250 return to the lineup as key models that continue to deliver iconic design with advanced engine and chassis technology.
The Faster Sons Design Philosophy
Yamaha’s Sport Heritage motorcycle models draw inspiration from in-depth experience spanning seven decades of design and manufacture of famous and iconic motorcycles. During this time, the world of motorcycling has continually evolved, yet the unique emotions and intense excitement experienced when riding on two wheels have always stayed the same. The Faster Sons design philosophy fuses iconic style with modern technology to create enjoyable and exciting motorcycles that recall the past while featuring the performance of today.
The 2020 VMAX is the ultimate power cruiser, designed to deliver eye-opening performance from its thunderous 65-degree, 1679cc V-four engine. Astonishing-yet-controllable acceleration is achieved throughout a broad range of power, thanks to Yamaha’s Chip-Controlled Intake (YCC-I) and Chip-Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) fly-by-wire technology. The four-into-one-into-two-into-four exhaust system adds to the iconic VMAX look and delivers legendary sound.
A lightweight aluminum chassis places the engine low and forward for mass centralization, while huge cartridge-damper-type front forks and a link-type Monocross rear suspension with a fully adjustable remote-reservoir shock combine to make the VMAX handle curves and straightaways with ease.
The 2020 VMAX will be available from authorized Yamaha dealers in Matte Raven Black beginning in October for an MSRP of $17,999.
2020 Bolt and Bolt R-Spec
The 2020 Bolt and Bolt R-Spec are designed to offer the ultimate in urban riding fun and feature a 942cc air-cooled 60-degree V-twin engine for excellent power and low-end torque. Their stripped-down design epitomizes the “Urban Performance Bobber” look while a compact, stable chassis delivers light maneuverability with an upright riding position and low seat height.
The Bolt R-Spec takes performance and style to the next level, with twin piggyback rear shocks tuned for great comfort and handling, and 12-spoke cast alloy wheels for added strength and toughness.
The 2020 Bolt will be available in Raven for an MSRP of $7,999, and the 2020 Bolt R-Spec will be available in Matte Silver for an MSRP of $8,399. Both models will begin arriving at authorized Yamaha dealers in September (October delivery for California dealers).
2020 V Star 250
The light and nimble 2020 V Star 250 delivers smooth power and easy handling in a stylish, entry-level V-twin package. Powered by the only V-Twin in its class, the unique 249cc air-cooled 60-degree engine delivers plenty of bottom-end torque and smooth roll-on power. Lightweight and compact with a low 27-inch seat height, the V Star 250 offers easy handling and maneuverability for first-time riders. With its 2.5-gallon fuel capacity and estimated 78 mpg, there is plenty of time for riding fun between fill-ups.
The 2020 V Star 250 will available in Metallic Silver and begin arriving at authorized Yamaha dealers in September (October delivery for California dealers) for an MSRP of $4,349.
