1982 Yamaha Maxim 650
Super handling with big bike comfort
Bought this bike from a nice old lady who used it for her display model. She decided to retire, sold her bike accessories store, her collection of Indian Chiefs, some Harleys, and this bike.
It has a full wind jammer fairing, coffee cup holder, built in stereo, leather handle grips with 2 ft leather whips. All needed for our cold Alberta weather.
Lots of smooth inline 4 power, not any of that shake and rock and roll V configuration. A lot smoother ride than my newer Honda 500 Shadow. Miss having 6th gear though.
The brakes need some work. My 6 speed Honda 500 shifts smoother.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
