2020 Yamaha Star Venture
The 2020 Yamaha Star Venture TC is the flagship of the touring and long-distance touring model range. It’s even in the name as TC stands for TransContinental. Powered by a 1854cc air-cooled, long-stroke 48 degree V-twin, the Star Venture pushes out approximately 85 crank HP, and 120 lbs-ft of crank torque.
The 2020 edition of the Star Venture TC has not changed much from previous model years, with the only real difference being that this has BlueTooth 5.0 compatibility, allowing commlink and phone connectivity with the latest and greatest in-helmet communication systems.
As well, many early reviews are speaking to the wind deflectors on the front panels being stiffer and moving more wind aside compared to previous model years.
The 2020 Yamaha Star Venture TC starts at $24,999 US/$32,299 CA
