First I've heard of it. Sure is purdy though.

Although it certainly looks like one of the modern RSTDs. Don't think they made that in 1997. Would be interesting to look at the neck sticker and see what year is listed there.

I believe the "Palomino" edition is legit however it appears maybe there has been some custom paintwork (murals) put on that one afterwards.

I doubt it sold new for that much tho.

Default Palomino

It looks authentic.
Yamaha made the Palomino as a special edition only in 1997. Beautiful bikes and you don´t see to many around. Don´t know how many were produced but if I find the info as well as the dealer price in 1997 I will post another reply.

Default 87 made

Eighty seven Palominos were painted under Yamaha contract by Andrew Preston at Bushtec Trailers. Don´t think any other painter had a Palomino contract with Yamaha so this could be one of only 87 made. Note I am not sure about this but you can see the info I found at this link: http://roadstarclinic.com/component/...,49/id,237812/
Now lets see if I can find the dealer price from 1997

I found this posted on the STARCRUISER web site So I guess they were a limited paint scheme.


I looked for a painter while the buying and selling was in high gear. I inquired at local paint and body shops, but never got a warm fuzzy about any of them. The local shops seemed to be unjustifiably expensive, so I turned my search to out-of-town sources. I finally settled on Andrew Preston, the painting expert at Bushtec Trailers in Jacksboro, Tennessee.

A few years earlier, Yamaha had contracted with Andrew to custom paint 85 Royal Stars in an ivory pearl color for the one-time offering of the "Palomino" model. I figured if he was good enough for Yamaha, he was good enough for me.

The bags appear to be throw-over. Not like the Star Bags.

Recently, my brother found a good deal on a 2006 Jayco Motorhome... too good to be true.

He got the VIN and ran a carfax. Best $30 he ever spent... saved him from making a $24,000 mistake.

I am not sure carfax lists motorcycles, but it would be worth looking in to.

The Palomino was made only the one year. We sold 3 of them in NC. The biggest problem with them was the tan bags and seat bleaching out from the sun. There was little to no uv protection on them. Yamaha warranty covered them for a while. Great looking but hard to keep looking good. By the way, the bags are the same hard leather that came on the Tour Classsic in black.

Default 1997 Palamino

I am new to the family. I purchased a 1997 Palamino with 20,000 miles from Flordia. When I bought it, the original bill of sale was in a saddle bag compartment, Yes, it was a little over $21,000. Has all the original owner's info.
Beautiful, gets tons of comments. The bags on this one are and the leather hard framed bags. I'm looking forward to the next maintenance day in Ohio.
