Yamaha to demo Star Venture cycle in Red Wing

The spotlight will be shining on River Valley Power and Sport, a marine and powersports dealership.

The Yamaha corporate bus will make its first ever appearance in Red Wing, July 21-22, for a demonstration event at River Valley Power and Sport.

Yamaha released its all new cruiser class model Star Venture on June 7. River Valley Power and Sport will be the first place the public has a chance to test drive this new motorcycle. In addition, people will have the opportunity to test drive the BOLT, FJR, FZ-07, FZ-0, R1S, STAR VENTURE, R6, R3, SCR950, V STAR 1300 DELUXE and the SRX900.

"What an incredible opportunity it is for River Valley to have the Yamaha event trailer at our facility in Red Wing," said general manager Shannon Harrell. "It is this partnership with Yamaha that allows us to have a very sought after display and retailing experience for our customers."

To test drive a bike, people must bring a valid motorcycle operator's license to River Valley Power and Sport. The event will be 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday July 21, and 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, July 22.
