Yamaha Road Star description
I am the 2nd owner of this bike and I bought it when it had 500mis on it. It has never been down or dropped. It is in perfect condition. It is ready for the summer season. This is Yamaha s famous POWER CRUISER, their HOT ROD of the group. This bike is not for the timid rider, it is a factory high performance bike and it is a blast to ride.It has a 102 cu. in. 1670cc air cooled V-Twin that pumps out incredible low rpm torque and acceleration. It has electronic fuel injection which produces awesome power throughout the rev range. It also has a 5 gear close ratio transmission and low maintenance belt drive.The frame is a light weight aluminum double cradle frame. It has an R-1 derived truss type aluminum swingarm that delivers exceptional cornering. It also has R-1 derived inverted forks and R-1 derived dual front disc brakes along with rear disc brake. Rear suspension is a pre-load adjustable mono shock. The wheels are lightweight cast aluminum 3 spoke with competition spec 120 70 ZR18 radial up front and a 200 50 ZR17 radial in back for super grip in the corners.The bike has a wheelbase of 65.6 with a seat height of only 28.5 and ground clearance of 6.1 for a low center of gravity. The weight is 606 pounds. so go ahead and power through those curves and enjoy!*Custom paint by Evil Wheels of Santa Cruz.
