Love it or, hate it? Yamaha Bagger

Recommended Posts

Mr.Puss
The Yamaha "Star Venture" was posted here previously and I'm sure plenty of you have seen this newest version, the Yamaha Bagger "Star Eluder"?
As a general personal preference I dont dig this class of scooter, but I really like the styling on this chunky blacked out version that looks like it came straight out of some Japanese anime like 'Macross' or 'Mobile Suit Gundam' etc. Pew! Pew!
 
What are your impressions?

Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. Hear the lamentations of their women.

I don't love it, but I also don't hate it either. It's unique and it looks quite comfy.

Personally I would ride the shat out of it. I have a Voyager 1200 for 2up road trips and was looking at a Wing or F6b as an upgrade. Now the plot thickens.

I am not a young person 25 years from retirement and I can't stand em (I am 64). BUT i am in the ulysses club and the comment is quite valid. The vast majority of them ride cruisers or trikes. I find the idea just aweful, but I think a lot of people go through like thinking " one day I will get a motorcycle and easyrider around" so they get a giant lump.

I don't actually hate it.

It's just one of the last bikes I'd want to buy.

I like it.  If I was looking for a cruiser it would definitely be a contender.

I have a love/hate relationship with it.  Being that the price is so close to the venture, it would be a difficult sell in terms of comfort for the mrs. (the only reason i'd get a bagger/tourer).

Two up long road trips.... Maybe.  But there's no 2-up for me and the wife (wife won't ride) and there's certainly no long road trips where I live, so I think I'll pass.  That seat does look comfy though and I like the full color info screen.

I wouldn't mind a bagger to take the wife on.... doubt I'd lean towards this over something like a Street Glide however.

Different seat height and position though.

Very different bikes really.
