The Making of Yamaha VMax Hyper Modified by Roland Sands, Marcus Walz and Ludovic Lazareth [Video]

Share this Article

Yamaha Motor Europe asked three of the world’s top builders to work their magic on the company’s flagship power cruiser, the VMax. America’s Roland Sands, Germany’s Marcus Walz and Ludovic Lazareth of France each set to work and create three different interpretations on the Yamaha VMax.

These “Hyper Modified” custom Yamaha VMax models were unveiled at Yamaha’s stand at the EICMA show earlier this month, and we placed them at #4 on our Top 10 EICMA Show Bikes You May Have Missed list. Yamaha has now released three new videos showing a behind-the-scenes look into the making of each of these three unique VMax customs.

Sands went for a more streamlined VMax with clip-on handlebars and a more aggressive riding position. Walz kept many of the VMax’s key styling cues crafted a number of carbon fiber components. Lazareth’s creation had a more industrial edge to it, swapping the stock air intakes and exhaust for a more rectangular look with harder edges.
