Star motorcycles

Basically a stripped down Stratoliner, Star’s 2010 Roadliner S qualifies as the ultimate boulevard cruiser not only because of the massive engine powering it, but also thanks to the glamorous styling and unique riding feel. Cumulating these incontestable qualities, this model has everybody going “yes, it’s a Star” and who are we to disagree?

Only the Roadliner S carries on to 2010 (the Roadliner Midnight remains a 2009 model year) and this cruiser is set to find the sweet spot of riders who prefer short and non-windy rides, but also that of those who feel like buying a base motorcycle and accessorize it as their hearts demand.

Star Motorcycles really overpass themselves with the 2009 Stratoliner models as these were not only impressively powerful and offered great road behavior – like all other model years before them –, but also stood out in the style chapter. Truly unique motorcycles not only in their manufacturer’s lineup, but among all other big displacement cruisers available on the market today, with each year that passed by, the Stratoliners only demanded some new color schemes and they were good to go. For 2010, things are different as Star launched the all-new Stratoliner Deluxe and carries on producing the Stratoliner S without any upgrades, while the standard Stratoliner will only sell as a 2009 model year.

Whether that’s good or bad, we cannot yet say, but we can say a thing or two about these 2010 models that caught our attention.

Star remains a strong player on the highways with the Royal Star Venture S model, their ultimate tourer that carries on as a 2010 model year without changes, but which clearly stands out thanks to its consecrated features such as the V-four motor and five-star accommodations. The standard Royal Star Venture is stuck in 2009.

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). .

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.

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!
