The Yamaha XJ650, also called the Maxim 650, was part of the Yamaha XJ series of high-performance, cruiser-class motorcycles. Yamaha manufactured the classic-style street bike from 1980 to 1983. The Maxim's design and horsepower-to-weight ratio made it a precursor to the modern sport bike.
1. The 1981 Yamaha XJ650 Maxim was powered by an in-line 653 cc, four-cylinder, dual overhead cam engine with eight valves. The air-cooled, four-stroke motor used four 32 mm Hitachi carburetors. Its bore and stroke measured 2.5 inches by 2.1 inches with a compression ratio of 9.2:1.
2. The Cardan shaft-driven Yamaha Maxim had a five-speed gearbox. The air-assisted 1-inch (26 mm) front forks had 5.8 inches (147 mm) of wheel travel. The five-way adjustable spring preload rear suspension had 3.8 inches (97 mm) of travel. The bike had a hydraulic single-piston, single-disc front brake with an expandable drum rear brake. The Yamaha XJ650 had a curb weight of 509.3 lbs with a seat height of 30.7 inches.
3. The Yamaha Maxim generated 71 horsepower at 9,400 rpm with 39.8 foot-pounds (5.5 kg-m) of torque at 7,500 rpm. The bike's quarter-mile time was 12.6 seconds at 107 mph. Its top-end speed was 120 mph.
