2013 Star Motorcycle Road Star Silverado S

Posted on by

The Star Motorcycle Road Star Silverado S is packed with a 102-cubic-inch (1670cc) air-cooled, pushrod OHV 48-degree V-twin which cranks out enough torque to keep your adrenaline level high. A computer-controlled fuel injection monitors multiple engine parameters and calculates which is the best mix to keep the bike’s performances high at any time.

Power is sent to the rear wheel by means of a smooth-shifting transmission which delivers adequate cruising performance with low rpm at highway speeds. The engine can be started by means of an electric starting system which features solenoid-activated auto-decompressor.

The long 66.5-inch wheelbase not only creates a long and low retro profile, but also gives the bike a better balanced while riding.

The telescopic 43mm front forks with stainless-steel covers and 5.5 inches of travel stylishly smooth out the bumps. Out-of-sight link-type, preload-adjustable rear shock provides 4.3 inches of wheel travel for great handling and a plush ride.
