Hi, Yes it is a good engine (very powerful and sounds great) But, that model (HPDI) have a tendency to go bang ALOT! Yamaha know this and have discontinued the HPDI range... The 150 is not such a grenade as the Z250's but I would suggest engine history and do a compression test if looking to purchase! Also, check if it has been running on Yamalube as they are only meant and designed to run on Yamalube 2-stroke...

Only on the HPDI you can plug Y.D.S (Yamaha Diagnostic System)

However, the carb version of the V-max 150 cannot be read. But, it is a fantastic engine and is not prone to destroying the pistons and linings. Uses more fuel though. I would still advise doing a compression test on any engine for sale...
