2013 Royal Star Venture S [Photo Gallery]
The 2013 Royal Star Venture S is a fully-loaded luxury machine fit for the trips of your life. It not only comes with a powerful engine, but it also packs a lot of handy features which make life easier and adds major fun.
You get a 79-cubic-inch (1294cc) V4 engine with 4 valves per cylinder and a shaft final drive. The engine is a bit smaller than what you'd commonly meet in similar bikes, but Yamaha claims this will not have a negative impact on riding conditions and the 97 BHP/ 89 ft-lb (120 Nm) torque will do the job perfectly.
The 2013 Royal Star Venture S is equipped with all the nifty accessories: star-branded iPod Touch linked to a 4-speaker audio system, CB and AM/FM radio and intercom, a 12V DC socket and dual additional 2-pin DC connectors. The lockable storage space is huge, as it should be, so you can fit anything you might need for a long bike vacation.
This bike comes in Charcoal Silver/ Raven and retails for $20,590/ 15,800€ US base price. Optional Accessories and apparel might raise the price tag.
