2002 Yamaha V-Star
My Comments: Bike is set up like a Silverado. Adjustable windshield, O.E.M. saddlebags and supports, and passenger backrest. Brakes, tires and muffler all have low wear – it’s ready for the open road and/or day to day use. Selling as bike is too small for me for long trips – 32” inseam max! Asking $4,900 OBO What the reviews say: The “Retro Style” Classic goes for flat out traditional comfort – a relaxed riding position with a wide pullback bar, floorboards and a broad dished saddle. The V Star 1100 is classically styled (traditional American motif) – the plus side look: fat wheels and tires, wide wrap around fenders, lots of chrome, and staggered dual mufflers. Good looking in an unassuming way. It sports a air cooled 1063 engine , exposed shaft drive, pivoting sub frame design with a hidden single shock. The time tested 75° V-Twin works so well you tend to forget about it....decent level of low-end and midrange “grunt”- flat torque curve, a highly useable range for the majority of riding situations – smooth positive shift action at speed.... It just cruises well, has a relatively high degree of comfort, well balanced easy to ride bike with superb fuel economy. Although somewhat heavy when compared to traditional and sports bikes, motorcycles the size of the V Star are stable at low speeds because of their low centre of gravity. One of the few bikes of this midrange size recommended as a best first bike." Please call instead of emailing.
