With the cruiser market on fire and buyers gobbling
up bikes almost as fast as they can be made, Yamaha has been scrambling for new
models to add to its lineup. For 2005 the tuning-fork folks are rolling out the
Royal Star Tour Deluxe, which can be converted from touring to cruiser duty.
It’s based upon the familiar Royal Star Venture, but the large front fairing and
trunk are gone, replaced with a quickly detachable windscreen and removable
passenger backrest. Pop them off to go cruising in town or slap them back on for
a road trip. Among the other changes are a new retro-style instrument panel;
chrome headlamp nacelle; clear turn-signal lenses; slightly smaller 5.3-gallon
fuel tank (down from 6 gallons); and four-into-two exhaust system with
changeable muffler tips. The audio system found on the Venture has been swapped
for an electronic cruise control on the Tour Deluxe.
