Motorcycle Review: 2018 Yamaha, Star Venture
PLEASE NOTE: I made a mistake and read OHV (over head valve) as over head cam. The Venture has a push rod engine.
I finally got the chance to test riding the all new 2018 Yamaha, Star Venture. The Venture is Yamaha’ fully loaded touring bike with all the bells and whistle you would expect form a $25,000 bike. In truth, it actually has a few features you will not find on any other air-cooled v-twin cruisers; namely two driving modes and traction control. Plus is has the “Sure Park” electric assist for those parking lot situations.
Overall, I think Yamaha did a great job with the Venture, but like any other bike it is not perfect, with a rather clunky gear box (something that is rampant with v-twin bikes) and a quirky keyless ignition system. But those are minor. If you are in the market for a big touring cruiser, give the Venture a look-see and decide for yourself.
