Power/Torque output*:

Power/Torque output from stock V-boosted Full power Vmax.

There is a lot of arguing about Full power / non-Full power Vmaxes.

The only difference is that torque decreases quicker beyond 6.000rpm on NON-Full power Vmaxes, and therefore HP only reaches about 85 rear wheel HP. And why is that? Because of a little tiny system called V-boost, that Full power Maxes have, and non-Full power don’t. And what the heck is a V-boost and how does it work?

“A small manifold-type connecting passage links each pair of left and right carburetors. A butterfly valve in the center of the passage remains closed below 6.000rpm, and each cylinder fills normally through a single 35mm carb. The magic begins at 6.000rpm, when the microprocessor-controlled servomotor (that’s why when you turn on the key, you hear this bzzzz-bzzzz sound) begins to open the butterfly valve until its fully open at 8.000rpm. V-boost simply forces one cylinder to fill with a mix from 2 carbs. This simple supercharging effect is seen clearly on the dyno, where the Vmax power curve literally gets a second wind. It catches the motor right at its torque peak and carries it all the way to its 113.5 rearwheel hp peak.”
