    ABS braking offers excellent control under hard braking or braking on wet or slippery surfaces
    controlling ECU & hydraulic unit are combined into a single compact unit allowing for mass centralization & reduced weight
    when ABS system senses impending wheel lock-up (via active type wheel sensors) it regulates the hydraulic brake pressure to the point just before the wheel(s) lock-up
    UBS system unifies or links the front & rear brakes when brakes are applied. System automatically adjusts the amount of unified braking force.
    front brake application will engage the UBS & apply varying degrees of rear brake force depending on how hard the brake has been applied
    rear brake application will engage the UBS & apply varying degrees of front brake force depending on how hard the brake has been applied
    unified brakes may reduce stopping distance by accurately balancing front & rear brake pressures

    Metallic Black cycle World Review.. After riding Yamahas all-new Star Venture last summer, I returned home pretty damn spoiled. The bar had been set. Two-up, long-distance touring took on new meaning. I was impressed with Yamahas attention to detail for rider and passenger, but more importantly, my better half decided that all of our future trips would need to take place on a Venture. With Yamahas announcement of the Star Eluder, I was eager to see what the stripped-down bagger sibling was all about and, more importantly, if it retained the features that make the Venture such a stellar machine. The Eluder also comes equipped with traction control and Yamahas D-Mode, which allows on-the-fly throttle-response adjustments from Sport to Tour with the push of a button (located on the right switch cluster). Very close attention was also paid to tuning the exhaust noteYamaha music engineers made spent gases a symphonic priority, which is a great example of Yamahas vision of blending emotion with function. At the heart of the motorcycle is still Yamahas 113ci (1,854cc) air-cooled V-twin powerplant that churned out 112 foot-pounds of torque at 2,560 rpm on our dyno. The beauty of Yamahas low-end torque machine is that it doesnt violently shake when rolling on the throttle in the low revs thanks to the twin counterbalancers The Eluder enters the blacked-out bagger market. Most components that are either chrome or polished on the full-dress Venture get a black powdercoat on the Eluder, which is all the rage for a bagger in the current style climate. Chrome still adorns the meter bezels, pushrod tubes, and a few other accents. The Eluders chassis is identical to the Venture and the suspension goes unchanged, which means canyon carving remains a solid selling point for this bagger. The beefy 46mm telescopic fork works harmoniously with the linkage-type rear gas-pressurized shock setup to provide effortless cornering with an overall buttery smooth ride. For storage, you wont find the Ventures cavernous touring trunk, but the spacious saddlebags still net you 67 liters of cargo capacity. Plus, the cockpit is equipped with two glove boxes up top, and one storage compartment on the lower left side, adding 4 liters of storage. If you were curious if the Ventures electronically adjustable windscreen found its way onto the Eluder, it didnt. Instead you get a chopped and fixed windscreen that is less than desirable because of severe wind buffeting at highway speeds, at least for my 5-foot-10-inch frame. And I fit into the pretty average category (just ask my wife!). I can see a taller or shorter rider escaping the abuse, but for the average Joe, get ready to be annoyed after a long ride. However, a taller windscreen option is available from Yamaha accessories ($170), which will hopefully combat this issue. The fancy, electronic, Sure-Park assist feature didnt make it from the Venture either. Sadly, the heated grips also didnt make it. Not standard, anyway, though you can also order them up as an accessory from Yamahas catalog ($280). You will find rider and passenger heated seats though, which did a great job of keeping my buns toasty on a wet and cold ride. Youll also find a great ventilation system when you want ittwo adjustable vents to direct airflow when its hot, or fully block out the elements when its cold or raining. I made sure both vents were closed and my legs and boots stayed pretty dry during a downpour along the ride. The three-position rider backrest that I liked so much on the Venture didnt make the cut on the factory Eluder. It really made a difference having some lumbar support after long hours in the saddle and, according to Yamaha, its not available as an accessory yet. One of the main selling points for both Eluder and Venture is the infotainment system. The 7-inch full-color LCD display is controlled via touchscreen, handlebar controls, or voice commandsit really is one of the best and most comprehensive infotainment packages on the market. You can easily link your Bluetooth-equipped smartphone for fielding calls or actually receiving text messages too. Listen to your local radio stations, rock out with pre-recorded music, or stream Pandora from your smartphone, thanks to the onboard USB, auxiliary stereo, or Bluetooth wireless connection options. Do yourself a favor and opt for the GT version of the Eluder ($1,500 more than the standard Eluder) since it includes navigation, SiriusXM satellite radio, and CB radio. Overall, the Star Eluder is a very capable bagger that is one of the most comfortable on the market, handles and rides extremely well, features plenty of torque to inspire confidence on the open road, and offers ample storage for a solo tourer ready to explore. The Eluders worst enemy might be its bigger siblingif youre planning on doing any long-distance riding, especially with a passenger, I say spend the extra $ for the Star Venture. Remember: happy wife, happy life, amigos.
