Star Motorcycles now offers the most highly appreciated cruiser of this year as a 2010 model, the only difference for the 638lbs bike benefiting of 200 horsepower and 123 lb/ft of torque being red paint. Also, the manufacturer’s suggested retail price has been raised with $1,510 (from $17,990 on the 2009 Yamaha VMAX
to the current $19,500), giving buyers the opportunity to show how the biggest excesses are made in times of economic crisis.
It’s sometimes enough to bring up the words “power” and “cruiser” so that other ones such as “Star” and “Warrior” would naturally emerge. That’s right; this motorcycle has become not only a Star emblem, but a benchmark for the industry. The interesting part about it is that it climbed all the way up to the top of the wave in the collective’s mental and keeps on riding there.
Based on the idea that brute force should be instantly delivered to the massive rear wheel of a stripped down cruising-type motorcycle, performance cruisers have claimed their fair market share and the Star Warrior has had a lot to do with it. Let’s see what it’s up to in 2009. Full story
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?
Can’t decide between cruising and touring? Why don’t have both with the Star Royal Star Tour Deluxe, a full-sized touring motorcycle that can easily be stripped into a veritable cruiser. Powered by a lively V-four engine, it loses nothing of the old Yamaha cruisers/tourers charm and we’re talking about a 2009 model year.
Previously known as Yamaha V-Max, now called Star VMax, this is one cruiser that means serious business and it is as advanced as we never even thought it was possible to get. We recently go the chance to test ride the beast so here is the full review. Check it out!
