New for 2018, the Star Venture promises a luxurious touring experience. The heart and soul of this flagship is an air-cooled 1,854cc V-twin tuned for strong midrange power and imbued with a ride-by-wire throttle, traction control, and selectable power modes. Electronics further permeate the 957-pound machine, including an electric drive motor that can move the bike backward or forward to ease parking (does this make it a hybrid?), and a standard infotainment system that may be either touch- or voice-activated. An optional Transcontinental package adds a navigation system, an up-level audio system with SiriusXM radio, LED fog lights, and a security system with alarm.
