The Venture is the ultimate Yamaha retro-styled cruiser. Built on the acclaimed 1294cc V4 platform, this bike rolls down the road with 98 horsepower and seemingly infinite torque, making both uphill rides in the mountains and fast highway runs as effortless and rewarding as it gets. With generous storage in the sidecases and the trunk, and providing its occupants with plush seating, the 1999 Venture also adds AM/FM radio, a cassette player with optional CD upgrade, intercom and CB, cruise controls and lower wind protectors for a smooth comfy ride.
