Blasphemy!!!!!

Good luck getting your hands on one.

I'd still like to get one of the new V-max motors. Have yet to see one of those for sale without the bike attached to it.

Lets think about what they have done.  Well north of 250hp out of 1,000 ccs in a production vehicle?  Rumors of 325+ in the H2, you can order one today, off the showroom floor.   Not too long ago 300 out of a 5,000 ccs (305 ci) was big power for the street. 

Amazing to get 300 out of 1000 cc in a production motor.  Extract that out.  Could you imagine? 

Everybody's fav the LS1 has what?  340 out of a 5.3?  Imagine that 5.3, production form, from the lot, at almost 1,500 hp? 

Numbers that not too long ago were pure fantasy.

Eh, still a long ways from the F1 turbo motors of the mid 80's. Those were getting 1300HP from 1.5L.

Not on 91 octane they weren't.   That juice was deadly.  As I recall, gas masks, gloves, full haz mat suits?

Those are gen 1 motors. I'm looking at the gen 2 which they do not offer.

It was "fuel", bore little resemblance to gas. But yes, it wasn't wise to breath it.

2010 - looks like it went for 1,500.00  Looks like a nice forum for VMaxx info?  Poke around and sate your desires for less than 2k? 

(Hard to sate one's desires for less than 2k anywhere anymore.  Price of hookers and blow has gone through the roof of late:  Stick with the VMaxx desires.)

The gas of today is a lot more consistent than in the past. Todays gas gets all kinds of bad press but in reality it and modern engine management is how we are able to make the power levels we do with any modern engine whether it be car or bike.
