As Many Of You Know, I Have Owned Many Yamaha Venture Touring Motorcycles And Have Loved Them All. However...If Asked Which Was The Nicest One I Have Ever Owned...I Think The Buck Stops Here.

"What Makes It So Nice?"...You Ask. The List Is Long And Deep. Let's Start With The Miles. Under 11,000 Original Miles On An Engine That Is Famous For Going 150,000-200,000 Miles And Still Be Running Strong. Remember, This Is A Detuned VMax Engine. That's Right.



There Are Fabulous Star Original Options Everywhere...From The Visors On The Rear Blinkers To The Visors On The Headlight And Extra Equipment Running Lights.

More You Ask? OK, The Bags Have The Beautiful And Expensive Trims Guards On The Sides As Well As On Top. The Top Rear Box Has A Spoiler With Its Own Led Lighting.

You Want More???? Ok...This Is A Tough Crowd. How About The Retro Look Fish Tail Mufflers That Sound As Well As Look Great. And The Wood Trim Veneer Tastefully Placed Throughout The Bike.

Extra Chrome Abounds Brilliantly And The Color Scheme Is Amazing For This Bike...And The Rarest And Hardest Color To Find.

Plus Add The Standard Features That You Can't Even Get On Alot Of Bikes And You Can Understand Why The Yamaha Venture Has Almost A CultLike Following Of Riders. It's A Value That You Can't Find Anywhere Else. I Have Listed The Features Of The Bike Below For Your Review.

Check Out Some Of The Features Of This Bike: 1,294cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 4-valve, V-4 power produces class-leading power - 98hp and maximum torque of 89 ft-lb @ 4,750 rpm -for incomparable touring performance. Air-adjustable, 43mm front fork with 140mm (5.6") of wheel travel smoothes out the bumps and can be adjusted for varying load capacities. Air-adjustable, link rear suspension features a vertically mounted single shock for that classic hardtail look and outstanding long-distance ride quality. Rear wheel travel is 105mm (4.1"). Yet the distance from the seat to the ground is only 29" so short people as well as tall can enjoy this bike. 6 Gallon fuel tank with low-fuel warning light ensure outstanding long distance touring range. Also has digital gas gauge.

Vintage-style instrument console features: digital speedometer, odometer, dual tripmeters, fuel reserve tripmeter, clock and fuel gauge. Convenient electronic cruise control system. Switch is located on right handlebar for ease of use. 4-Speaker Clarion AM/FM cassette stereo features automatic volume control (AVC), 18-FM presets, 6-AM presets, covered cassette deck and remote controllers for rider and passenger. Handlebar-mounted 40-channel CB radio and Intercom (needs wired helmets).
