Yamaha's focus on driver and passenger comfort is many faceted. Consider the adjustable and heated rider and passenger seats/backrests, plus heated grips.

Passenger floorboards are also adjustable for added passenger comfort. Simplify every ride thanks to Yamaha’s Smart Key system. The remote key fob only needs to be in the rider’s pocket in order to access the luggage system, start the bike, and ride. Perhaps the nicest feature of all is “Sure Park” electric parking assist that will move the bike in both forward and reverse. If you’ve ever tried to push a full-rig touring bike around a gravel parking lot, you will appreciate this feature.

Add it all up, storage capacity for the saddlebags, top trunk and various fairing cubbies is 37.3 gallons! Lock and unlock compartments with the key FOB or with the standard lock cylinder and key. Long rides don’t stop when the sun goes down, so the Star Venture features all-LED lighting to maximize illumination. LED brake lights and turn signals boost visibility, while the quad LED headlight assembly punches a huge hole in the darkness with crisp, bright light. All of this and an improved chassis for better handling and performance on the road. Designed around a rigid chassis and advanced suspension systems, the Star Venture is built to offer Yamaha’s renowned handling ability when the road turns twisty, without losing the comfort or straight-line confidence expected from a luxury tourer.
