2003 Yamaha Road Star Midnight Star
Black bikes look better in the shade…
Tough guys have always worn black, and this 98-cubic-inch V-twin is no different. Surrounded by lustrous onyx lacquer, this bike makes a statement wherever it goes.
Blacked-out engine with polished fins and studded rider and passenger seats create a unique look among Road Star models.
And, with its beefy, chromed front end, sculpted steel fenders and wire-spoked wheels, no other cruiser does it so elegantly.
Climb aboard this belt-driven, V-twin beast, thumb the starter, open up the throttle. Feel the torque – 99 foot-pounds at 2250 rpm!
