Bright Lights: A Comparison of
Honda V45 Magna vs Yamaha 750 Maxim-X

Pick your own proportion of luxury and performance for the street.

Yamaha, on the other hand, needed something special to crack Honda’s sales grip. In a bold move, Yamaha slipped its most potent Engine: technology into the conservative Maxim styling package, hoping that an explosive amount of horsepower would shatter the Magna’s status as reigning high-tech street cruiser. The question remians, however, whether Yamaha has succeeded in upsetting the Magna from its throne or in simply establishing a brand-new category of machine.

Even though these two bikes ostensibly share the same class, they differ radically in design, performance and style. The ’85 Magna’s updated cosmetics are a closer reworking of the Harley-Davidson look. The seat has been lowered, the wheelbase stretched and a new backrest added. The Maxim-X is a typical representative of Japanese inline-four customs. Its wheelbase is shorter, the steering head high and the front fork very long. In contrast with some of the more successful Harley clones, the Maxim[-X]’s custom styling appears a little dated.
