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.
