Let it Sparkle.

When Yamaha decided to create a classic touring bike that turns every head on the block with its sleek sophistication and classic good looks, we realized there was only one place to start with the Royal Star Venture.

We did that, and then we added even more chrome to create the Royal Star Venture S. It's got the eye-popping style and the smooth performance of a luxury touring bike, with two very appealing added features: a surprisingly low price tag and a 5-year, unlimited mileage warranty.
