2006 Yamaha XVZ1300 Royal Star Tour Deluxe – SN296
UK Registration RL55 NPP
Here is a great example of what in my opinion is one of the most overlooked cruisers in the sector. The heart of the bike is the superb 1300cc de-tuned V-Max water-cooled V4 motor that runs through a beautifully matched 5 speed transmission and bullet proof shaft drive.
I have seen these bikes in the USA advertised with over 300k miles on such is the under stressed nature and build quality of the drivetrain. This is a large cruiser with a commanding presence on the road or simply parked.
This one in particular has had 1 owner and kept in a garage its whole life meaning the condition is very good.
The beauty of the bike is that it has factory fitted windshield, lockable pillion bags and sissy bar.
I have fitted to this bike in particular a pair of Harley Touring slip ons I had hanging around as in my opinion any many others out will agree, they just sound so much better (check the video). This is quite a big upgrade really as these exhausts sell for £300.
These bikes ride fantastic on the long wheel base, air suspension and large tyres, they are also super comfortable with the saddle/footboards/handlebar combination just right for soaking up the miles.
