1999 Royal Star Venture (XVZ1300TF)
(1999 / Production Model)
Taking the XVZ1300 Royal Star as its base, this overseas market long-distance touring model featured a number of advancements for greater comfort in long-distance riding. Its liquid-cooled V4 power unit was given revised gear reduction ratios and large, 32 mm diameter carburetors and other features to improve passing acceleration and the engine’s feeling of pulse. In addition to increasing overall chassis rigidity by mounting the engine to the frame with rigid mounts, the front wheel’s alignment was optimized to heighten ride stability when riding with a tandem passenger. This model was also defined by its large upper cowl and other exterior parts designed in a “modern classic” style.
