I just came back from my dealer. He said that there were several 2014 Strats and Roadliners unsold over the country, so no 16's. They hope to revive them in 2017.

As a dealer Yamaha told us 18 new models in 18 months. To date we have had three nice models but no touring model with all the bells and whistles. We still need a 450-900cc adventure touring bike and they have a nice 660 in Europe. We get a new cheaper R-1 and some warmed over models with new paint and graphics. They call these new models, hardly the case.

I heard from my dealer that mother Yammy is looking at bringing back the Strat dressed up like the Royal Star Venture. It would be nice to see for sure. One can only hope eh.

2009 Stratoliner S

Believe it when you see it.

We have been BEGGING for a new touring bike for years. Some customers said they would buy the Venture if Yamaha would just fuel inject it. That is loyalty! My feeling is that we will not see anything truly new for quite some time. Kawasaki even said they are cutting back on the cruiser market and not chasing Harley any longer.

I only hope if they do come back in 2017, the Gas tank is larger, the transmission is a 6 SP, ABS, Built in stereo and gauges, Cruise control. Well if not I'll go to the dark side HD, I have a 2009 and have waited for years for any changes. None!! Oh except they took the Stays off the front fender.

They did exactly the same thing a few years ago - they had a glut of 650s or 950s...I can't remember which so they went a year where they made no new ones, then brought it back the year after when the dealers had all sold off the new, old models.

They didn't make '15 Strat or Roadliners 2014 was the last year for them.
