The Roadliner S is the biggest V-twin engine cruiser model produced by Yamaha’s Star Motorcycle imprint. First introduced in 2006, the Yamaha Roadliner S is a bold, beefy cruiser that’s decked out in chrome and curves. While the vehicle seems to take its cues from retro models, the Roadliner S is a thoroughly modern machine that’s appointed with many of the latest comforts and accessories. The bike’s neo-streamliner appearance and the excellent attention to detail shown by the manufacturer all but ensure that the Roadliner S will turn heads wherever it goes. Far from being all show and no go, the Yamaha Roadliner S comes equipped with a beast of an engine. The 2013 Yamaha Roadliner S features a neo-streamline design that lends it a unique look. Many components on the 2013 Roadliner are chrome including the switchgear, front brake and clutch master cylinders and levers, belt guard, fork and fork covers, handlebar clamps, shifter, front pully cover, engine covers, and rear fender stay. The 2013 Roadliner S features an aluminum frame that’s long and low. This not only lends to the Roadliner’s attractive looks, it also facilitates handling that’s lighter than what you’d expect from a full-size cruiser. The 2013 Yamaha Roadliner S features a sculpted seat that helps improve comfort, even on long range cruises. Visibility is excellent, thanks to position beams housed within the main headlight assembly. The Roadliner’s instrumentation is classic clock-style to enhance its neo-retro looks. Instrumentation includes an analog speedometer, tachometer and fuel gauge, twin digital trip meters, and an odometer. A bright multi-reflector headlight and LED taillight further enhance the Roadliner’s custom look, as do its amber turn signals housed behind clear lenses.
