The Royal Star, which was introduced by Yamaha in 1996, has a liquid-cooled 1294-cc, four-valve, four-cylinder engine that can produce 98 horsepower and 89 lb-ft of torque at 4750 rpm. The four-valve/cylinder design ensures superior engine performance, while the five-speed transmission with wide-ratio and fifth gear overdrive decreases the engines rpm at high speeds for smooth engine performance. A large radiator allows excellent engine cooling, which increases the engine’s performance, while an internal, single-axis counter-balancer decreases engine vibration, increasing rider comfort.
