New Middleweight Cruiser Part of 2011 Yamahas

The Stryker is striking!

Yamaha is unveiling several new models for 2011 including a new cruiser called the Stryker from its Star Motorcycle line. The chopper-esque Styker is a middleweight cruiser powered by a 1300cc fuel injected liquid cooled V-Twin engine.

The Styker has a competitively low seat height of 26.4 inches allowing shorter riders to reach both feet on the ground.

The wide 210 series rear tire and custom sized 21-inch front wheel, among other features, give this bike the edge it needs to compete in the custom cruiser market. The 2011 Stryker starts at $10,990 for the Raven color and $11,240 for the Impact Blue and Reddish Copper colors. Visit for more information.

The Stryker is available now in dealerships.

The FZ8 is an all new naked bike from Yamaha designed to fill the gap for sport riders who feel a 600cc is too small and a 1000cc is too big. The muscular naked bike styling gives it an aggressive, mass-forward stance. The FZ8 inherits proven technologies from the R1 and FZ1. For more information visit,

The 2011 FZ8 will be in dealerships nationwide in December with a starting price of $8,490 and will be available in Raven as pictured.

Lastly, Yamaha is introducing an early release 2012 model, the new Super T#233;n#233;r#233;, a 1200cc parellel twin dual sport. The 2012 Super T#233;n#233;r#233; will be available through a priority delivery program at Yamaha dealerships nationwide beginning in September with customers placing advance deposits of $500 and deliveries beginning in May of 2011.

  1. Definitely a much nicer bike than the Fury, better paint and a belt drive to boot.

  2. Great information and pictures. Next stop, Yamaha Web site.

  3. The seat height is great. Is 1300cc really necessary? Must be a “man thing” — bigger is better. Yamaha, bring back the Virago! I had a 1996, 1100 with 64,000 miles; had an electrical problem while out of state, long story — I traded her in on a Honda Shadow, which is a good bike, but I miss my Virago, it “fit” me just right!
