New for the 2008 model year, Yamaha's work horse cruiser, the Road Star, finally gets fuel injected.

That's probably good news for many Road Star fans, because when Yammie introduced the Roadliner a couple of years ago, many thought it was going to spell doom for the Roadie. Adding the FI to the Road Star seem to suggest they're committed to keeping it around for awhile longer.

Otherwise, there's little other change.

2008 Yamaha Road Star
I note that the 2008 model Road Star is now a tad heavier at 694 pounds dry, compared to 688 pounds for the 2007 model.

The Star Motorcycle website also says the 2008 model has a seat height of 27.9 inches, compared to 28.0 inches of last year. I doubt this is an actual change; probably just a formality of rounding.

Price is also higher than last year, at $11,899 compared to $11,399, for the base model.
