2004 Yamaha Road Star

The Road Star Just Keeps Getting Better and Better…

Are you ready for the New 2004 Yamaha Road Star? The Star Family’s bare-knuckled brawler has been working out hard and it shows – inside and out. Modern-day V-twin muscle meets legendary styling, making this more than just a motorcycle. It’s a rolling work of art.

At the heart of the improvements is the New 102 cubic-inch air-cooled, long-stroke, OHV 48° twin engine that pumps out huge amounts of torque barely off idle for brisk acceleration and fantastic overall cruising performance. Additional engine mods include redesigned valve system, camshafts, rocker arms, air induction system, cooling fins and beefed up clutch. Bottom line…more power and performance.

There’s lots more. An all-new lightweight and high-strength final drive belt provides long life, quiet operation and better acceleration. All-new brakes featuring dual 298mm front disc brakes with 4-piston calipers (that come straight off the YZF-R1) and 320mm single disc rear brake for strong stopping power.

And, with its new ultra-thin, tank-mounted speedometer, beefy, brushed-steel forks, sculpted steel fenders and all-new 16″ cast wheels shod with tubeless tires, no other cruiser does it so elegantly.

Short and long range rider comfort is supreme thanks to wide, swept-back, 1″-diameter, rubber-mounted handlebars, restyled touring rider seat that’s 40mm wider, a reshaped passenger seat and full-size floating-type rider floorboards with new rubber inserts.

The 2004 Road Star: Redefining the standard.
