    Alarm Yamaha 3rd Gen Venture Touring Bike

    June 5th Yamaha introduced the new Star Venture. Yamaha introduced a new V twin touring bike that looks alot like the other V twin touring bikes on the market. It does have some new hi tech gadgets, but its basically a Stratoliner in full touring trim. Price on the fully decked out Transcontinental Package will be well over $30,000 Canadian.

    Terry from T&T was pretty excited about it on Monday when it was announced, he had it all over his business Facebook and his personal one too.

    Yamaha is clearly going after HD market. Hope it does better than Victory did. Not sure about Yamaha's claim that this will also spark fear in Honda and take some of the Goldwing market.

    It's definately got some great new features. With all the options Yamaha had for an engine, I wish they had stayed away from the big V twin. No rated HP yet, but the twin does have decent torque(126ftlbs at 2500 rpm) with a 4750 prm redline.
    Premium fuel, 6.6 gal tank and only 300 km range
    Twin alternators for more electrical capacity
    Electric park assist
    LED lights
    ABS braking
    Belt drive (prefer shaft drive but its heavier)
    Heated grips and seats
    Trunk large enough for two helmets!!
    957 lbs dry!!! The Bridgestone rear tire better have a huge carrying capacity for 2 up full loaded riding.
    Lots of electronic goodies on the Transcontinental Package.
    TC package over $37,000 Canadian plust GST!!!
