Yamaha XVZ1300A Royal Star

The Yamaha XVZ1300A Royal Star was first introduced in 1996 and was intended for sales in Japan, Europe and the United States. The main feature of the motorcycle was the use of a V-shaped 4-cylinder engine, which migrated from the touring version of the Venture Royale. Thanks to this engine layout, the vibration level was low (compared to the 2-cylinder layout), the motorcycle received a unique exhaust sound, and, importantly, it was possible to obtain impressive power and torque for this class - 75 hp. and almost 112 Nm. At the same time, the motor remained strongly deformed, reaching maximum performance already starting from 3500 rpm.

`` Main modifications of Yamaha XVZ1300A Royal Star :

  • Yamaha XVZ1300A Royal Star - regular version.
  • Yamaha XVZ1300AT Royal Star Tour Classic - touring version with a different saddle, windshield, saddlebags and backrest for the passenger.

It is important to note the presence of other versions of the Yamaha XVZ1300 model. These include Yamaha XVZ1300LT Royal Star Tour Deluxe and Yamaha XVZ1300TF Royal Star Venture. Despite the fact that these models position themselves in the same lineup with the XVZ1300A, these modifications still have a number of key differences that do not allow them to be combined into one review. Therefore, they will be described in a separate article.

In 1998, the Yamaha XVZ1300A Royal Star model finally left the Japanese market, but continued production for Europe and the United States. 2001 was the last year of the model's existence on the market, after which it finally left the assembly line. The successor to the XVZ1300A was the new model Yamaha XV1600 Road Star / Wild Star, which appeared in 1999. However, the XVZ1300 continued to be produced until 2013 as a luxury tourer XVZ1300TF Royal Star Venture.
