The Yamaha XVS1300A Midnight Star has been described as a laid-back cruiser, but make no mistake about it, there’s nothing ’laid back’ about its performance.
That’s because the XVS1300A Midnight Star is powered by a 1,304cc liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, 40valves, V-type 2-cylinder OHC engine, one that’s capable of unleashing a world of power and performance that riders ultimately crave. At the heart of this bike, you’ll find the engine features forged pistons, 4-valve heads and shortstroke con-rods, so that every time you hit the throttle you feel a knockout, low-down punch, that turns into great power.
The bike’s engine make-up has also been added with twin balancers that tune out the unwanted vibrations. It also has an intelligent Unified Braking System that provides an independent or combined wheel braking for total control.
As far as its design characteristics are concerned, the XVS1300A Midnight Star takes the classic 1930s-inspired styling, with a tight body and low silhouette that’s old-school and adds a radical new twist.
Combine the engine, the chromed-up style, the throbbing torque, and the very best of 21st century bike technology, and you have a bike that you can proudly say is far more aggressive than it’s laid back looks suggest.
