Talking about power, the Road Star S is a true heavyweight in every sense of the word, boasting of a 1,670cc air-cooled 48° V-twin engine that has an overflowing number of horses and muscle on tap. It’s also easy on the eyes courtesy of all the classic chrome hardware and details, making for a bike that looks as good as it’s steely and imposing profile suggests.

Nobody said that cruisers come in simple packages; the Yamaha Road Star S is proof of that.
