The most reliable bike ever!
Not much if anything has gone wrong with this motorcycle. The stator went, but was not difficult to replace. The usual things like tires and brakes to be maintained, but engine wise you cannot kill this thing!
This motorcycle was Yamaha's attempt to get in on the touring market going up against rival Honda's Gold Wing. Well Yamaha took the motorcycle market by storm when they built this bike.
Some people claim that the Venture is top heavy. Well that may be so, but I've owned two of these bikes and have not had problems steering or holding it up.
My first Venture was just as good as my second Venture. The first one was lost in a fire, but I immediately knew I wanted another Venture. They are extremely reliable and proven! Anyone wanting a proven and reliable bike need look no further.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
