The Star Venture’s infotainment system is probably the best out there right now as far as a variety of options… If you get the Transcontinental Touring option (add $2,000 to the price tag). But with that (and since it’s what I tested) you get Bluetooth connectivity via smartphone, USB connectivity via portable device, intercom (hard wired), CB radio, Pandora streaming feature, turn-by-turn GPS, SiriusXM radio streaming, and much more. And this infotainment setup is cool because it’s equipped with a first-ever dual-zone audio feature, meaning you and your passenger can listen to different audio sources at the same time (she can stream Pandora while I rock out to my USB audio library). It’s also controllable via touch, voice, or from the toggle switches located on the left side handlebar or on the screen itself. Now, it’s a little intimidating figuring out how to navigate at first, but after a few days futzing around, it’s actually a lot of fun to use. The only issue I had with it was that when Yamaha asked me to send a couple helmets prior to the launch because they wanted to install their new headset, I was unpleasantly surprised to see they’d drilled a dime size hole in each of our new Arai helmets to install their communication cord. WTF?! And when using the system, I don’t like being plugged in with a cord. Isn’t this the 21st century, I thought? Is Bluetooth not ready for dual-zone audio? I guess not, according to Yamaha. However, I guess I got used to it, somewhat. Even though I’d get off the bike multiple times with the cord still attached to my helmet (insert whiplash sound effect here). I guess if you’re going to buy this motorcycle, you’re probably going to wear the same helmet with it anyway once you get your comm system installed. So I learned to get used to it.
