2010 Yamaha Road Star Silverado

102-cubic-inch FI V-Twin powered. Loaded with soul and ready for the open road.

The 2010 Yamaha Road Star Silverado is legendary for its styling and strength. It’s designed with casual touring comfort in mind, including a plush seat, full-sized floorboards, and soft leather saddlebags.

Pack your bags.

Fill up the 4.7 gallon fuel tank, plant your feet on the floating floorboards and let that big 102-cubic inch fuel-injected V-Twin have its head. Medium size adjustable windshield. Color matched hard sidebags. Touring saddle and passenger seat with backrest. You are ready to go.

This is a special machine. One that blends classic styling with a deep rooted character and personality.

A massive fuel injected 1,670cc V-twin delivers impressive torque and the kind of cruising performance you only get from a Yamaha. And with wide, rubber-mounted handlebars, a touring seat geared to all-day riding, and roomy soft saddlebags, you’re ready for the long-haul. Pure power. Uncompromised comfort. And it’s dangerously close to being too damn beautiful to ride…almost. Simply legendary.
