The Yamaha Royal Star Tour Deluxe is a cruiser type touring motorcycle built by Yamaha. It was introduced in 1997 and was manufactured, largely unchanged, until 2005 through the 2009 model year. The Royal Star Tour Deluxe uses the same framework as the Star Venture without the Venture's large fairing, and trunk. V-4 engine, same lay out as the time proven V-Max. and Venture. The drive package on the Royal Star Tour Deluxe is a liquid cooled 1,298 cc (79.2 cu in) (referred to as 1,300 cc) V-4. It has four valves per cylinder, overhead camshafts, and shim over bucket valves. The five speed overdrive transmission is part of the engine case and both the engine and transmission share oil. The drive shaft and final drive assembly are built into the left side of the double sided swing arm. Swing arm motion is damped by a monoshock mounted in the center of the frame. The best of two worlds: Stripped-down street cruisability and plush long-distance touring capability in one motorcycle with the quick-change windshield and passenger backrest. This one has got a "killer' sound system on it. A marine grade amp in the fairing, and speakers in the bags, and in the bag lids. Also there are four speakers in the batwing style fairing. It also has a super cool lighting system that is sound activated, nice touch!!! It has been fully serviced, and it is ready to ride!!!
