In 1983, Yamaha offered a “Midnight Virago” that featured a black paint scheme with gold accents. They also offered a rare color-matched factory touring package with a fairing, saddlebags, and trunk for even more Midnight goodness – though this example seems to only have the fairing as well as a giant aftermarket backrest for the passenger.
The Virago was introduced in 1981 with a 750cc motor as Yamaha’s first V-Twin cruiser. A year later, Yamaha introduced a 920cc option for $500 more ($3,700 total), though it also got you double disc brakes, a stiffer spring in the rear shock, and the “CYCOM” computerized LCD dashboard.
This example has approximately 10,000 miles, and it comes with the Yamaha accessory fairing and windshield. It’s had a recent service that included new tires, new battery, and an oil change. Find this Midnight Virago for sale in Cupertino, California for $3,900 here on Craigslist.
