2018 Venture Transcontinental forum

Thanks jbasile, we can look into it. First, we'd have to see if the community also wanted to get the section added. We'll check back on this thread in a few days and see if other members of the community have added their feedback.

Its probably the most significant new product introduction by Yamaha Motorcycles in a decade. Or more. If you are going to have a forum featuring "models" (which you do) I'm uncertain why you would leave out the flagship of the line and wait for people to respond to a thread with very few hits. Is that the process you used to initiate the other model forum classifications ? There is no poll option in this forum software or I'd gladly start one.

Oh well, no biggie. If I'm the only one asking...either no one here knows about the new 2018 Star Venture Transcontinental.....or no one cares.

EDIT: ps, I mean a Venture TC model category here on the Starbikes forum.....not a whole new forum with different URL.....just a simple addition to the models category list which has Bolt...650...1100..... Roadstar...etc. Just to clarify.

Thanx.

I say yes to a new Venture category. There has been interesting threads started all ready about people taking test drives.

Yamaha is going to get a lot of new customers for this model line, at least they are banking on that. If you want them to come here instead of somewhere else, it makes sense to add the forum. i'd recommend labeling it the "Venture/Eluder" forum.

I'd second this option. From my understanding they're basically the same bike just dressed differently.

Okay great. I just set up the Venture/Eluder forum. Let me know if you have any feedback or it needs some tweaking. Thanks again for the suggestion @jbasile

Cheers,

It's a tough call for admin to decide which models to dedicate an entire model category for. Just look at the traffic stats for the Warrior, Stryker and Vmax, not much going on there. As for the Venture, I think so far we've discussed the elusive Niken more than we have the Venture so whether it's deemed a 'significant' model has yet to be decided but honestly with $25K price tag I suspect as far as forum traffic is concerned, it'll go the way of the Warrior.
