I ride a 2001 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic and absolutely love it. My husband passed it down to me, and it never lets me down. I have ridden to Alaska and California from my home in Ontario, Canada. My odometer reads 61,250 miles, and I plan to ride it for many more. Long trips and short trips are a joy and comfortable to boot.
Say hello to Star Motorcycles V Star 950, new from the ground up new frame, new engine, new everything. Star is the cruiser line of bikes from Yamaha. It was inevitable wed see this new V Star 950 hit the market. Kawasakis Vulcan 900 was introduced in model year 2007 has been well received virtually redefining the middleweight category as bikes with engine sizes from 900cc to 1300cc.
WRN is resurrecting some motorcycle video test rides. Heres one we did on the 2008 V Star 1300, which is a step up in power over the 1100. The 1300 features an all new engine and styling call it the next generation V Star. The motorcycle is extremely smooth and predictable, and considering it weighs about 625 pounds, it moves along like its a much lighter machine.
