2004 Yamaha Road Star Midnight Review

2004 Yamaha Road Star Midnight

Surrounded by lustrous onyx lacquer, this bike makes a statement wherever it goes…

Tough guys have always worn black, and this beast with its new 102 cubic-inch air-cooled, long-stroke, OHV 48° is no different.

It sports all the new Road Star features, including redesigned valve system, camshafts, rocker arms, air induction system, cooling fins and a beefed up clutch. Also, there’s an all-new lightweight and high-strength final drive belt for long life, quiet operation and better accelration. All-new brakes featuring dual 298mm front disc brakes and 320mm single disc rear brake for strong stopping power.

Blacked-out engine with polished fins and studded rider and passenger seats create a unique look among Road Star models.

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.

And, with its beefy, chromed front end, sculpted steel fenders and all-new 16″ cast wheels, no other cruiser does it so elegantly.

Climb aboard this belt-driven V-twin, thumb the starter, open up the throttle. Feel the torque!
