2012 Yamaha Roadliner S

2012 Yamaha Roadliner S

The 2012 Yamaha Roadliner S doesn’t come with a whole lot of changes compared to the previous models, and that might be a good thing. It still has that unmistakable neo-streamline design that gives it a completely distinctive look. Add a long and low aluminum frame that provides great looks and light handling with one of the biggest engines on the market, and you have a bike that’s definitely worth your hard-earned money. Speaking about a few features of the bike, the sculpted seat provides an excellent place to sit on long rides. The Roadliner S also gets plenty of chrome treatment, including the chrome switchgear, front brake and clutch master cylinders and levers, the belt guard, fork and fork covers, handlebar clamps, a shifter, a front pulley cover, various engine covers, a rear fender stay, and polished wheels.

The Roadliner S will also be carrying a 1,854cc air-cooled, pushrod V-twin engine that produces great thrust at any speed. That’s added to a twin-bore downdraft electronic fuel injection, providing optimum engine efficiency and throttle response in the widest possible range of conditions. Despite the monster engine, Roadliner S achieves an estimated fuel economy of 42 mpg with a fuel tank that holds 4.5 gallons of gas.

Handling is also aces with the Roadliner S. We already talked about the lightweight aluminum frame, but the bike also has a light, controlled-Fill die-cast swingarm that complements the bike’s streamline style and reduces unsprung weight for great handling. Add 46mm fork tubes that serve up an excellent ride and a tucked-out-of-sight single shock with adjustable spring preload and there’s no mistaking what the Roadliner S has to offer.
