The segment of custom cruisers is now booming and one of the major players in this class is the Star Motorcycle Raider S. The bike comes with a long list of customizable features which give it pretty versatile character.

With its stretched out fork, fat rear tire, low seat and the slammed riding position, the Star Motorcycle Raider S is clearly and eye catcher.

When designing the Raider S, Yamaha’s engineers wanted to create a bike that looks like a regular chopper, but offers superior handling.

To achieve this result, Yamaha forged a unique all aluminium cast frame which is both lightweight and rigid. There is also a Controlled-Fill, aluminum swingarm and a comfortable low, sculpted seat.

One of the most important features of the bike is its 6-degree yoke angle which plays a major role in giving it a custom look without affecting the handling and straight-line cruisability.

Power comes from an 113-cubic-inch (1854cc) air-cooled, OHV with 4 valves per cylinder, pushrod 48-degree V-twin which delivers its max torque at 2500 rpm and max power at 4500 rpm.

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.

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.

In the latest years Start Motorcycles - which is in fact a Yamaha sub-brand - managed to become the most recommended brand after Harley Davidson which is today’s segment leader.

One of the models that helped Star build its strong reputation among the American bikers was the custom-style Raider.

Using the favorable wind produced by the Raider’s ascension, Star grabbed the opportunity to introduce a new model which also happens to fill a pretty big gap in its mid-size cruiser lineup.

For the newborn Stryker, Star Motorcycle forged an all-new cradle-type steel frame. The new frame houses a 1304-cc v-twin engine which is liquid-cooled via a tasty radiator mounted between the frame’s front downtubes. It’s the same powerplant used by the V-Star 1300 but it received a few tweaks which give it a higher lifter ratios for extra punch. The result is a more responsive unit which delivers a stronger midrange power, being perfectly suited for Stryker’s needs.
