    Default 2018 Yamaha Star Venture Trans-continent (TC)



    http://www.motorcyclistonline.com/20...st-look-review

    Very attractive bike.

    USA can get it by Sep this year.

    Anyone one has any idea if Hong Leong Corporation Holdings Pte Ltd (Yamaha authorised agent) is bringing in this tourer.

    I like the SurePArk system and feet forward sitting posture but worry about the air-col V-twin (overheat?) and if the engine is too noisy (typical V-twin exhaust sound).

    It would be better if it has a autotrans.
    People ask me, "Why ride bike?" I ask them back :"Why drive car?"

    One small psychological "trick" I am using it to convince myself and my wife to buy an expensive bike is, to stretch the bike to its maximum lifespan, so use it more than 10 years, maybe 20 years to fully justify for its high cost. By then I think I am too old to change/ride bike liao.... hahah

    Don't think S'pore Yamaha agent Hong Leong will bring this bike in as most/all the BIG bikes here are UK specs......Yamaha UK/EU don't show this model as it is a US spec.
