Rigid-look frame provides a great ride via a hidden rear shock with 3.9 inches of travel. Engine: Beautifully chromed and polished 40 cubic-inch (649cc), air-cooled, V-twin cranks out torquey low- and mid-range power with minimal engine RPM — maximum torque is reached at only 3000 RPM — for powerful, smooth cruising performance.

Low-maintenance shaft drive provides quiet, reliable performance. 2-into-2 chrome exhaust pipes create sleek styling and deliver maximum low- and mid-range engine output. Chassis/Suspension: Stout, large-diameter steel frame designed to provide low seat height with ample rider legroom. Long, 64-inch wheelbase adds to rider comfort, predictable handling and creates that long, low retro look. Stylish heel/toe shifter adds versatility and enhances overall cruising comfort. Comfortably placed full-size rider floorboards minimize engine vibration and fatigue. Hardtail-look frame conceals a link-type, preload-adjustable single rear shock with 3.9 inches of travel for excellent handling and a plush ride. Beefy, telescopic front fork with stainless steel covers and 5.5 inches of travel ensures a smooth ride with stylish durability. Single front disc and rear drum brakes deliver strong, confidence-inspiring stopping power. Wide, retro-style handlebars evoke a classic design with roomy ergonomics for enhanced rider comfort. Fat front tire on wire-spoked wheel combines retro styling with solid handling and traction. Additional Features: Industry-leading Star Family fit and finish features rich, lustrous paint and extensive chrome accents that create a stunningly timeless machine. Large, low-profile seat only makes it easier for riders to touch their feet to the ground while stopped. Deeply valanced steel front and rear fenders both durable and unmistakably classic. Beautiful, tank-mounted speedometer designed with a large face for easy reading of tripmeter/odometer displays and turn signal, neutral, high beam and engine diagnostic indicator lights. Chrome 60/55-watt halogen headlight adds a nice stylish touch and maximizes nighttime visibility. Maintenance-free 12V 10AH battery ensures reliable, no-fuss starting.
