JOURNEY FURTHER :: Star Venture :: Brand new, 5-Year Yamaha USA factory warranty w/ unlimited miles starts day of sale!
"Top-of-the-line" tourer combines emotional V-Twin performance with cutting-edge comfort and technology.
HIGH TECH MEETS HIGH TORQUE: A massive 1854 cc air-cooled V-twin powers Star Venture with a class-leading 126 pound-feet of pavement-bending torque, for effortless passing power even when fully loaded. And while the competition promotes their “” four-valve cylinder heads, Yamaha has been refining the four-valve, twin-spark-plug, pent-roof engine design for nearly 20 years, delivering exceptional power and drivability that leaves the rest of the class in the dust.
SIX-SPEED TRANSMISSION: Developed specifically for the needs of long-distance touring, the six-speed gearbox features ratios chosen to make the most of the huge low-end torque available from the 1854 cc engine, for brisk acceleration in lower gears and relaxed highway cruising—at 75 mph in sixth gear, the Star Venture will run at an ultra-smooth 2750 rpm.
YAMAHA SURE-PARK SYSTEM: Star Venture tackles big-mileage trips without breaking a sweat, and thanks to the Yamaha Sure-Park System, even the smallest maneuvers of your ride are equally confidence-inspiring. Controlled from the handlebar, a small electric motor provides forward and reverse drive to handle tricky parking situations, especially on rough or poor traction surfaces.
CLASS LEADING FUEL CAPACITY: The Star Venture features a huge 6.6 gallon fuel tank for generous range, easily reaching 200 miles between fuel stops. Riders now have the freedom to journey further than ever.
