FrontRunners: Biker Chic

    Powered by a massive 1700 cc V-4 engine and dressed by Hermès in buffalo leather, the 2011 Yamaha Hermès VMAX (www.yamaha-motor.com) could dominate the drag strip as well as the catwalk. The $33,385 one-off bike has black-and-chocolate-brown leather covering its seat, fuel tank, instrument nacelle, handgrips, and fenders, as well as a portion of the exhaust silencers. Brushed aluminum trim complements the leather. The VMAX is built with a lightweight diamond-type frame and equipped with 18-inch tires.
