Yamaha Raider Review
We immediately grabbed our keys and ready to take our Raiders to a ride test in a calm day. As we hit the road, a lot of eyes were on us because the modern chopperesque cruisers delivers impressive performance with a touch of retro style. Its bright red paint and black out components draw more attention. On the road, Yamaha Raider is a state-of-the-art machine that delivers throaty noise under high speeds. This performance-inspired motorcycle is incredibly fast, controllable and handles well. Gear shifting is also excellent allowing riders to choose among its five gears to suit varying situations. It pumped out loads of torque with confidence boosting grunts. We took the Raider on a twisted road which is apparently not the perfect environment to witness its ability. The cruiser is extremely well-behaved and balanced especially when tackling corners and curves. There is plenty of room when cornering which allowed us to lean and feel its plush suspension. Braking department worked well too. The relaxed riding position is comfortable enough to keep us going thanks to its exceptional ergonomics that didnt made us weary. Its 16 liters fuel capacity is good for longer trips. Whether you are planning for a fun ride across cities or an all-day ride around town, Yamaha Raider provides exciting acceleration and generous torque that you can maximize.
