If you believe there’s more to life than work, and the real definition of freedom 55 is riding your bike without a care at 55 mph, then the heart of a cruiser beats within you. If you believe that chrome and leather are the basic building blocks of life, and that the only real artery is made of asphalt then jump on a Yamaha and experience the pleasure of cruising the endless back roads.
Designed to maximize the riding experience with all the nostalgia of motorcycling’s earliest roots. The Road Star’s engine is designed to run at low rpm while cruising, providing a distinctive pulsing feel while pumping out excellent torque. This is achieved with a long stroke (113mm) engine configuration, immense crankshaft and pushrod valve actuation. The Road Star also has the lowest engine height of any large V-twin cruiser, further enhancing its long, low style and riding attitude.
