Given what seems to be an impossible task, French customizers Ludovic Lazareth, along with his American counterpart Roland Sands and the German-base Marcus Walz, took up the difficult challenge of altering the Yamaha VMAX, perhaps the best known street fighter motorbike. Perhaps in honoring the futuristic design sensibility when the VMAX first arrived in 1985, Lazareth created a silhouette much in-line with a jet fighter. With angular additions, most notably the air intakes and exhausts, the French designer also dropped down VMAX's front portion to give it a streamlined form. (Kind of similar to 80's anime classic Genesis Climber MOSPEADA) Because of its 175-horsepower, liquid-cooled V4 powerplant is at the heart of VMAX designation, Lazareth decided not to alter it instead. Unveiled at last month's EICMA, the VMAX Hyper Modified Project By Ludovic Lazareth will most likely make its way to motorcycle show near you next year.
