2011 Yamaha Royal Star Venture S


The 2011 Yamaha Royal Star is a luxury touring motorcycle that offers everything that experienced motorcycle riders look for in motorcycles of this class. It is a sophisticated machine with classic looks and the comfort level that is expected from a top-of-the-line, long-distance touring motorcycle. With a robust four-cylinder engine vintage inspired styling that reflects class and heritage, the 2011 Yamaha Royal Star is designed to impress even the most difficult to please motorcycle enthusiasts.

The 2011 Yamaha Royal Star Venture S has a four-speaker audio system with speed-regulated volume control, an AM/FM radio, and intercom functionality. Chrome accents have been added to enhance the luxury styling, while there is no shortage of storage space. There is a trunk with a capacity of 15 gallons, while the two sidebars have a capacity of 9.3 gallons each, providing a total storage capacity of 33.6 gallons. Furnished with comfortable, ergonomically-designed seats and a plush passenger backrest, the 2011 Yamaha Royal Star Venture S can be a reliable companion on every journey.

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.
