New touring Model Annonced Sept 6?

That's what an email says that I received From Yamaha. If it's a 720 pound or so bagger with the 113 engine I'm all over it.

Yep a new touring model, its not the Venture.

Could be a re-freshed 1300 that has been talked about (ABS, fly by wire throttle, and others things) They did a pretty big campaign for the Venture over a couple of months. This is just days out, so my guess a re-freshed 1300 and not a new bike.

The weight is a lot more than I was hoping for.

Venture = Dresser
Eluder = Bagger

pretty much the same moto sans some of the extras the Venture has.

i would like to see a 6-speed 1300ish version of the Eluder, something a little lighter and more "around town" friendly, yet big enough for 2-up riding and some extended trips once in awhile like i do with my '13 1300 Deluxe.

Star Venture = 957 lbs
Star Eluder = 877 lbs
Star 1300 Deluxe = 717 lbs
biker dad and biker dad like this.

Well my thoughts. Big fail, nothing new but a stripped down Venture. If your going to spend 20k+ you might as well get the Venture Wing.

The name Eluder, that's pretty bad. They should name these bikes the Venture Deluxe and Venture Tourer because that is what they are.

The Eluder does not say bagger at all to me, is says buy something else's........

I have to agree, terrible name... So Venture was a copy of Electra Glide, now there is a copy of Street Glide...

I agree on the name. It's even worse than Suzuki's Intruder.
