Venture spotted on 60 minutes


Recommended Posts

Last night on 60 minutes they did a piece about economic development in the golden triangle area of Mississippi. The director of the development agency rode off on his Venture to go to a meeting with a prospective company in one scene. It was two tone red and black. i don't know what year that makes it.


anyone from that area, or is her member? (He should be).

had to be an 09 2nd gen. they did not offer a black and red 2nd gen any other year


Well I am afraid that is not correct Eusa - they actually did offer them in 2001 and I have seen a couple in person. In 2001 they had Cherry Red and Black even though they are not very common. Here is a picture of one I found on the web and there are others.

VIN number verifies it to be a 2001.

VIN: JYAVP04E61A005024 The tenth letter (number) indicating the year of production.

This one is for sale on eBay at the moment. Item number 201734454351 - and there are a quite a few other 2001 Cherry Red/Black for sale on the web.

This one is a steal for the price he is asking and he is also welcoming offers. Would most likely buy it if I was looking for another bike. Purdy bike !!

They called it bordeaux red in 2001 and the same color was on some of the silver and "egg plant" 99.

yamaha never produced a black and red of any shade in 2001.

you can go to eom parts finder and it will show you if you have further doubts. 100%

I don't think so Jonas. I think it is Bordeaux. VERY dark red. I went to the one on Ebay and if you really zoom in, I THINK I can see that it is the Boardeaux.


You guys got me on the CHERRY - But Red it is :o

I LIKE RED ! CHERRY, CANDY, BORDEAUX,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
