Star builds their 2010 V Star 1300 Tourer as the ideal midsized highway motorcycle that makes no concessions in what concerns power, comfort and built quality. Combining a bulletproof and dynamic 80-cubic-inch engine, a low (28.1 in) seat height and Star unmatched fit and finish, this package simply had to be widely exploited.

Last year we saw two different models available, the simple V Star 1300 and the V Star 1300 Tourer. This last came fitted with a tall windscreen, leather-wrapped, hard sidebags as well as a passenger backrest, all contributing at delivering a machine that is meant to keep the rider and passenger traveling for long distances in complete comfort. Well, find out after the break how the 2010 model year is even more comfortable and stylish.

Yamaha hasn’t yet launched its 2010 line of cruisers, the so-called Star motorcycles, but designers have already started to speculate regarding the evolution of different models. We have a hunch that the 2010 Yamaha V Star 950 won’t receive more than some new colors, but came across some interesting sketches that reveal the contrary.

Adrian Sellers is a designer based in Huntington Beach, CA. He is specialized in Industrial Design, Design Management and Illustration, but we’ve come to find that he is quite interested in the evolution of motorcycles and transportation vehicles in general. His V Star 950 rendering retains the original Star look and adds a little more salt and pepper, managing to mix the classic and custom style with great ease. The spoked wheels aren’t from the production bike, neither is the seat and we can’t help noticing how the V-Twin engine is much easily stood out. It would have been nice to speculate about the different possible colors, but it seems that a shiny Red will always set a Star apart from the crowd. Just check out the 2010 VMAX (the only new Star model to be seen yet). .

Probably Star’s most appropriate motto would be “A Star for everybody” as they offer different, but close sized engines to power a variety of models that are meant to suit all possible riding demands. Take the V Star 1100 lineup for instance. This fills in the gap between the V Star 1300 and V Star 950 with three similar and yet so different models, the Classic, the Silverado and the Custom. So which one suits you best?
