2004 Yamaha Road Star Warrior Review

2004 Yamaha Road Star Warrior

We know what you’re thinking. Is the Warrior a cruiser or a sportbike? The answer is yes…

Yes, that’s a pushrod, air-cooled, fuel injected, 102 cubic inch (1670cc) V-twin — that’ll blow your socks clean off.

And yes, that’s a lightweight aluminum frame with a 41mm inverted fork, monoblock brake calipers and sticky performance tires on three-spoke alloy wheels supporting this welterweight Road Star.

You’ll appreciate the Warrior’s superior power-to-weight ratio when you dump the clutch and that 200-section rear tire hooks up.

The 2004 Warrior sports revised rider and passenger foot peg location, new handlebar design and an all-new 2-piece seat that’s wider and flatter for increased rider and passenger comfort.

Can you guess why the Warrior was Motorcyclist Magazine’s Cruiser of the Year for `02? Simply put, “It stops and turns and soaks up the bumps better than anything else in cruiserdom.”

We’re talkin’ bout a revolution here. The sound and fury of the gnarliest twin we’ve ever built is housed in a vessel designed to stop and turn like a sportbike.

Total performance. Total Warrior. Road Star Warrior®.
