Star Motorcycle V Star 1300 Deluxe

Totalmotorcycle ---- "Introducing the world’s first production midsize bagger! Packed with features including a torquey 80 cubic inch engine, stylish and functional fork mounted fairing, fully integrated dash and audio system with iPod/iPhone 5 compatiliity, hand controller for audio, Garmin Zumo 665 motorcycle friendly navigation system (featuring XM satellite radio capability, bluetooth wireless, waterproof design, lane assist and 3D building view), hard bags with tons of storage, steel fenders and muchmore. The all new 2013 Yamaha V-Star 1300 Deluxe truly is in a class by itself."

Motorcycledaily ---- "It’s based on the V-Star 1300, which has been around for a while. The eight-valve liquid-cooled 1304cc sohc 60-degree V-Twin is flexible, smooth and powerful and works well with the tube-steel chassis and decent suspension (read our first ride report here). Billed as a “mid-sized” cruiser, it’s intended for relaxed back-roads riding, but it’s still big enough to carry two adults. A standard version as well as a tourer—equipped with locking hard leather-look bags, passenger backrest and a tall Plexiglass windscreen—have been available since 2007. At 712 pounds wet, it’s light for a touring-cruiser, and with a claimed 42 mpg it’s econmical too. Belt drive should be a friend to tourers as well."

Motorcycle-Usa ---- "The bags of the 2013 V Star 1300 Deluxe are color-matched, lockable hard saddlebags designed to match the styling of the V Star 1300 Deluxe and hold a claimed 7.6 gallons each. Star continues to feature steel fenders on their cruiser, unlike the plastic used by other metric cruiser manufacturers, a small detail that has the potential to influence buyers in this segment of motorcycles. The 4.9-gallon tank is short and wide. Star mounted the fuel pump in a separate, hidden sub-tank that allows for the thin tank design. "
