2007 Yamaha Road Star Midnight

It’s in the details.

Some might say it’s not fair to offer a cruiser that looks and runs this good right off the showroom floor. Wonder what they’ll say when you’ve added a few custom touches of your own.

Though it’s only available in a deep, classic black lacquer – and why would you want any other colour? – this Star is sure to light up the road with its radiant good looks.

Gleaming chrome, a retro studded seat and loads of torquey muscle will have you itching to ride. Swing a leg over, fire up the massive V-twin engine, and then settle in for a nice long ride – maybe even past midnight.


– 1,670cc, air-cooled, long-stroke, OHV, 8-valve, 48° V-twin powerplant pumps out lots of low-rpm torque for unparalleled acceleration and cruising performance.

– 4 valves per cylinder provide optimum breathing efficiency while 2 spark plugs per cylinder ensure complete combustion for maximum power output.

– Hydraulic valve lifters driven by twin crankcase-mounted camshafts deliver exceptional performance and reduce maintenance needs.

– Traditional pushrod valve actuation keeps overall engine height down for a lower centre of gravity.

– Large-diameter, forged pistons offer great durability and lighter weight for fast response.

– Ceramic composite-plated cylinders provide uniform heat dissipation, reduce weight, reduce friction and increase cylinder service life.

– Cooling fin thickness is optimized for maximum heat dissipation, thereby eliminating the need for liquid cooling, maintaining that traditional clean, air-cooled engine appearance.

– Warrior-based, rigid crankcases feature an eye-catching black paint scheme. The outer edge of the cylinder cooling fins is polished to provide a striking contrast.

– Air Induction System (A.I.S.) reduces harmful exhaust emissions (CO + HC). Air induction pipes are used to provide a cleaner, more stylish appearance.

– Single Mikuni BSR 40mm CV carburetor with throttle position sensor features an accelerator pump, carburetor heater and classic side-mounted air filter to ensure great throttle response and optimum power throughout the rev range. The throttle position sensor is linked to the CDI and supplies info about throttle opening so the CDI can adjust ignition timing for optimum engine performance at all rpms.

– High-capacity air intake system with paper type air filter provides maximum breathing for optimum performance.

– Smooth-shifting, 5-speed transmission with 5th gear overdrive delivers outstanding cruising performance and reduced rpms at highway speeds.

– Clean, quiet belt drive system is extremely low- maintenance and simplifies customization. Special narrow design drive belt and sprockets (front and rear) provide lightweight performance and exceptional durability.

– Dry sump lubrication system with handy spin-on oil filter, creates a lower centre of gravity by helping reduce overall engine height.

– Large-flywheel crankshaft delivers superior, low-rpm torque and that incredible V-twin “pulse” feel.

– 2-piece heel-and-toe shifter adds versatility and enhances the overall cruising experience. 2-piece design allows the rider to individually adjust front and rear portions to suit foot size or remove the rear section if not desired.

– Electric starting system features solenoid-activated auto-decompressor for easy, no-hassle starting.

– 2-into-2 exhaust system features beefy, staggered, dual shotgun pipes that produce a soulful V-twin exhaust tune. Muffler replacement is fast and simple, if desired.


– Solid-mounted engine housed in a specially designed gusset-less, double-cradle frame features a stylish 32° rake.

– Long 1,685mm (66.3″) wheelbase creates a long and low retro profile, great rider comfort and solid, stable handling.

– Spacious ergonomics provide ample legroom, which maximizes rider comfort.

– 43mm front forks with large-diameter covers and 140mm (5.5″) of wheel travel smooth out the ride.

– Spring preload-adjustable, single-shock rear link suspension lowers centre of gravity for better handling and a plush ride. Rear wheel travel is 110mm (4.3″).

– Rear shock is horizontally mounted under the engine and tucked out of sight for that classic, hardtail look.

– Dual 298mm front disc brakes feature R1-inspired, one-piece, 4-piston calipers with chrome “buttons” accenting the outer piston covers. The dual disc brake set-up eliminates the unsettling twisting effect of a single disc set-up found on many cruisers.

– 320mm rear disc brake with 4-piston caliper provides excellent stopping power and feel.

– Separate rider and passenger seats provide lots of support and comfort. Passenger seat can be easily removed.

– Full-size, floating-type rider floorboards are roomy and comfortably positioned while also helping reduce vibration.

– Wide, swept-back, 1″-diameter, rubber-mounted handlebars are easy to reach and help to reduce vibration on the rider’s hands.

– Separate sub frame positioned under deeply valanced rear fender allows easy customization with numerous accessible mounting points.

– Deeply valanced steel fenders combine timeless styling with rugged durability and easy customization.

– Nine-spoke, cast aluminum front and rear wheels not only reduce weight and maintenance (no spokes to tighten), but they also add a sportier styling image to the Road Star Midnight Star. Since these are mag wheels, they are fitted with bias ply, tubeless-type tires.

– 20-litre fuel tank provides an exceptional cruising range. Fuel tank seam is hidden for that clean, custom look.

– Wide, swept-back, 1″-diameter, rubber-mounted handlebars are easy to reach and help to reduce vibration on the rider’s hands.

– Beautiful braided steel-look throttle and clutch cables enhance that the Road Star’s stylish custom look and image.

– Ultra-thin, tank-mounted speedometer features an extremely stylish design with raised 3D marks to highlight the speed graduations. Instrumentation includes odometer, dual tripmeters, clock and fuel gauge plus a range of indicator lights.

– Diamond-shaped, LED rear taillight with white lens looks like it is straight off a fully customized machine. The LED design not only provides a bright light, but also uses less power.

– Stylish turn signals with custom looking clear lenses are self-canceling

– Rear turn signal mounting bracket is beautifully chromed and features a built-in license plate light. It is small details like this that separate the Star series of cruisers from the rest of the crowd.
