Yamaha V-Ixion is a 4-stroke naked bike manufactured by Yamaha Motor Corporation.Few days ago the company launched a newer version of this bike called the Yamaha V-Ixion 2013.The 2013 version is just the revamped avatar of the predecessor.There is hardly any change made to the engine and transmission.Just a full body make over is given to make the bike look more edgy and aggressive.The front heavy, muscular design of the bike adopts some curves in the middle and tapers down by the end for a sporty, forward biased stance. The sporty muffler has purportedly been designed to reflect the sportiness.The yellow painted rear shock absorber and the red pinstriped rear wheel also add to the sporty appeal.
