I think the front of the Venator is more heavily armoured. Between 22 and 25, I'd say. Probably more 22. It can be given extra armour, no sure how you would model that. Perhaps bringing it from 22 to 25 AP.
I support 20 to 25 SI, +10 maneuvrability, open topped (and wheeled). I think it can optionally be given smoke launchers too and 2 hunter-killer missiles. As for Speed, the Astartes bike goes 20m/110 kph. I'd probably make it a bit slower. Remember that in DW there is a gap between Astartes gear and IG stuff. Just compare armour values in DW and OW. I would go with 17m and 90 kph. Slightly better mobility stats for the normal Tauros.
Now that I was able to refresh myself on some of the books, I agree with Alex up thar. Wasn't a bad guess though
So overall you're looking at maybe the following statline, feel free to tweak to personal preference:
Type: Wheeled Vehicle
Front: 25, Side: 20, Rear: 20*
Structural Integrity: 25
Crusing Speed: 90kph
Crew: 1 Driver, 1 Gunner (Turret)
Carry Capacity: None
Size: Enormous (6)**
Vehicle Traits: Open Topped, Wheeled Vehicle, Galvanic Motor
Galvanic Motor - A vehicle fitted with these is able to ignore the first two "Drive Damaged" critical results before it starts to succumb.
May take one turret mounted weapon from the following:
2 Multi Lasers (Use stats from OW, maybe tweak a bit at discretion)
2 Las Cannons
And may come with
2 Hunter Killer Missile
3 Uses of Smoke Launchers
* My logic here is that the front of the vehicle will be a little better as thats where the brunt of the firepower is likely to be going. Side armour however, you have a very clear shot at the driver so I have made this weaker. Additionally I have kept the rear armour as low since on the venator this is where the ammo is stored.
** Size wise it is a little longer than a Sentinel but narrower and taller, this is why I have called it Enormous (same as a Sentinel or Krootox). Next size category up is for Battle Tanks and Greater Daemons which would be way too large.
