2010 Yamaha Roadliner S

Classic American style in a high-tech machine that rides like no other full-size cruiser.

The 2010 Yamaha “Roadliner S”… a machine designed to stir the senses. From the “Neo Streamline” styling, to the emotional pulse feeling of the massive V-Twin engine, the 2010 Roadliner is designed to be a harmonious blend of power and beauty.

There really is no replacement for cubic inches.

And it’s hard to argue with 113 of them. Our biggest V-Twin is also our boldest, with a highly advanced fuel-injected engine producing peak torque at only 2500 rpm. And an aluminum frame for the kind of solid, precise handling nothing else in its class can touch.

The Roadliner S offers an incredible level of performance, excitement and pride of ownership.

A culmination of all the knowledge we have gained since the introduction of the Star series. The stunningly beautiful Roadliner S is more than just a pretty face, it is an incredible cruising experience. Discover for yourself how the 1854cc V-Twin power, fuel injection, aluminum frame and swingarm, are all skillfully crafted to provide an incredible feeling of sensual performance and excitement.

Key Features
•  The Roadliner S gets chrome switchgear, front brake and clutch master cylinders and levers, belt guard, fork and fork covers, handlebar clamps, shifter, front pulley cover, various engine covers, rear fender stay and polished wheels.

•  The flagship of the Star line, and Cycle World magazine’s Best Cruiser for 2006 (CW’s 10 Best, July `06) is designed to show and go like no other cruiser before it, with big power and great handling.

•  Powerful and beautiful 113-cubic-inch (1854cc) air-cooled, pushrod V-twin produces great thrust at any speed.

•  Twin-bore downdraft electronic fuel injection ensures optimum engine efficiency and throttle response in the widest possible range of conditions.

•  Neo-streamline design, gives the Roadliner S a completely distinctive look.

•  Long and low aluminum frame provides great looks and light handling unlike any other full-size cruiser, thanks to a low center of gravity feel and a near 50/50 weight distribution on the front and rear wheels.

•  A sculpted seat makes the Roadliner S an excellent place to sit on long rides.

•  The Roadliner S achieves fuel economy up to an estimated 42 mpg** with a fuel tank that holds 4.5 gallons of gas.

•  113-cubic-inch (1854cc) air-cooled pushrod 48-degree V-twin has massive looks and performance.

•  Four pushrod-activated valves and two spark plugs per cylinder provide optimum combustion efficiency along with classically beautiful engine architecture.

•  Plated cylinders and forged pistons cooled by oil jets provide outstanding reliability and long life. Twin counterbalancers keep things smooth but rumbly.

•  9.48:1 compression ratio and aggressive cam timing increase power output across the board.

•  Computer-controlled, twin-bore, fuel-injection monitors multiple engine parameters to calculate perfect mixture under all conditions; a wide-angle 12-hole fuel injectors provide excellent atomization.

•  Exhaust Ultimate Power valve (EXUP) inside the two-into-one exhaust system boosts torque in the 2500-3000 rpm range.

•  Special custom machining of the cooling fin edges gives a jewel-like appearance to the engine as light hits it from different angles.

•  3300 rpm at 75 mph gives some idea of the Roadliner’s power and cruisability. Maximum torque is reached at only 2500 rpm.

•  Aluminum frame is light, rigid, and requires few welds. A light, Controlled-Fill swingarm casting complements the bike’s streamline style.

•  With 49.6 percent of its weight carried on the front wheel, the Roadliner S has the weight distribution of a sportbike instead of the typical cruiser, and that means great handling.

•  46mm fork tubes wearing slant-cut stainless covers serve up an excellent ride and a sweet appearance.

•  A tucked-out-of-sight single shock with adjustable spring preload out back provides a smooth ride under varying loads.

•  A thick, richly chromed 1.25-inch handlebar in polished clamps carries the Roadliner’s switchgear wiring on the inside.

•  Flangeless, teardrop fuel tank carries a full 4.5 gallons of fuel.

•  12-spoke wheels evoke a thick spoke look, but carry modern tubeless radial tires; a 130/70-18 front and a fat 190/60-17 rear.

•  Front brake master cylinder with integrated lever operates a pair of 298mm front discs squeezed by strong monoblock calipers for excellent power and feel.

•  Strong and light belt final drive routes power smoothly and efficiently to the rear wheel.

•  Floating floorboards and an adjustable heel/toe shifter help provide a comfortable, low-effort ride.

Additional Features
•  A sculpted seat makes the Roadliner S an excellent place to sit on long rides.

•  Position beams within the main headlight housing provide great visibility.

•  Left-thumb operated high-beam switch, and right-thumb activated accessory driving light switch for great visibility.

•  Jewel-like fit and finish, and Star quality paint, chrome and attention to detail are evident all over the Roadliner S.

•  Classic clock-style instrumentation complements Roadliner S’s neo-retro look and contains analog speedometer, tachometer and fuel gauge, along with twin digital tripmeters, odometer and self-diagnostics.

•  Bright multi-reflector headlight, LED taillight and amber turn signals behind clear lenses give a custom look.

•  Oxygen sensor and three-way catalyst reduce emissions.
