– 2000 Yamaha Venture
This 79-cubic-inch V-Four full-dresser with plush touring features and classic style delivers confident long-distance performance and excellent rider comfort.
The retro-styled Venture produces a claimed 98 horsepower, and features a solid-mounted engine placed in an all-new frame. Fuel is fed by four large-bore 32mm carburetors. Also keeping things smooth in the engine bay is a vibration-reducing internal counterbalancer and a wide-ratio transmission with slightly changed internal gear ratios for lower rpm at highway speeds. One can count on logging quite a bit of highway time, thanks to the Venture’s 6-gallon fuel tank that delivers a claimed touring range of more than 225 miles.
Luxury touring features include large, plush rider and passenger seats; full-size rider and passenger floorboards; spacious trunk and saddlebags with numerous storage compartments; AM/FM/cassette stereo (with optional CD upgrade availability), CB/intercom system (standard), and easy-to-use cruise control. The wide windshield, upper and lower cowling, and wind deflectors provide very good weather protection.
The 2000 Venture comes in Imperial Red/Salsa Red, and is available now at a manufacturers suggested retail price of $15,999 US.
Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., backs all Ventures with a bold premier customer support package which includes a five-year, unlimited mileage warranty and 24-hour roadside assistance. This package also features a 24-hour toll-free service line, 24-hour emergency towing, locksmith service, dealer locator service, trip interruption benefits and a customized trip planning service.
