Yamaha Royal Star For Sale
The Royal Star is a monster of a motorcycle. The overall looks of this big bike is bold. It’s a big cruiser that holds its own on the road and has that ‘Harley’ look. This motorcyle has a sound all its own, a deep rumble that says one word-power. With its low center of gravity, large forks and mono-shock rear, it rides just as good as it looks.
No matter where it’s riden, it attracts admirers. It has plenty of chrome with wide, low fenders that give it a customized look. It handles great and brakes hard and fast and is a true pleasure to ride.
