– 2002 Yamaha Road Star Silverado Review
2002 Yamaha Road Star Silverado
New for 2002 is the Road Star Silverado…
The brawny 2002 Yamaha Road Star Silverado (and its Road Star sibling) thundered onto the cruiser scene three years ago, taking it by storm with its sheer size, classic retro styling and heaps of torque.
But then, it’s hardly a mystery why this belt-driven mega-machine made such a huge impression. When you’re home to a gigantic 98 cubic inches of air-cooled, pushrod-actuated V-twin pumping out 99 foot-pounds of torque, people tend to notice.
