About the 2014 Yamaha Road Star S

With its classy appearance, low slung stature and the imposing personality, the 2014 Star Motorcycles Road Star S is a fairly unique cruiser that has a lot to love. You also get a 32 degree rake that gives the entire motorcycle a relaxed stance. The Road Star S gets a chromed out front end including chrome forks, fork covers, fork clamp, switch housings, and brake/clutch levers as well as stainless steel braided throttle and clutch cables.

The motorcycle is built on a double-cradle frame that is rigid yet stiff assuring a high level of agility. The frame houses a 102 cubic inch (1670 cc), air cooled 48° V twin, pushrod OHV engine with 4 valves per cylinder. The engine’s power is kept in leash by a 5-Speed, wide-ratio transmission with multi-plate wet clutch. Once on board you are welcomed by a comfy seat, an ergonomically designed handlebar and a ultra-thin, tank-mounted speedometer. The 2014 Star Motorcycles Road Star S is offered with a base price of $ 12,990.
