Yamaha XJ650 Maxim
Registration no. HTU 519X
Frame no. JYA5N800XCA006291
Engine no. 5N8006291
Newly introduced in 1980, the Yamaha XJ650 had benefited from considerable input from European motorcyclists, relayed back to Japan via Yamaha Motor NV in Holland. The result was an accomplished, light-middleweight all-rounder possessing maintenance-free shaft drive (one of the best of its day), a comfortable ride, accurate steering, secure handling and strong brakes. Bike magazine managed to coax a top speed of 114.9mph out of one in 1981 while returning 43 miles per gallon, which doesn't seem that bad by today's standards. First registered in the UK in 1995, the imported machine offered here is an example of the Maxim version, a US-style factory custom featuring a 'peanut' fuel tank, stepped seat and high 'bars. We are advised that the exhaust headers have been shot-blasted and repainted with high-temperature matt black paint, and the silencers re-conditioned with stainless steel outers. Not ridden by the vendor, the machine comes with a V5C document and is sold strictly as viewed.
