Not a bad touring bike for the money
Seat was worn and split.
Trunk and saddle bags cracked.
Gear shifter was loose and worn.
The bike handled good and had plenty of power.
Compared to my current bike (1994 Honda Goldwing GL1500), the frame of the Venture Royale was not very sturdy, especially when carrying a passenger.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
