– 2003 Yamaha Road Star Silverado Review
2003 Yamaha Road Star Silverado
Cruise in style, retro style that is…
The brawny 2004 Yamaha Road Star Silverado (and its Road Star sibling) thundered onto the cruiser scene four 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.
