Key Features

  • The open-road version of the all-new V Star 1300 rolls out with a windshield, leather-wrapped, hard sidebags and a passenger backrest.
  • Authentic cruiser features like belt drive and steel fenders open up the customization possibilities even further.
  • All-new midsize Star brings modern classic styling along for a lighter, sportier, hot-rod-inspired ride.
  • All-new 80-cubic-inch (1304cc) liquid-cooled, fuel-injected V-twin produces excellent power across the board along with a highly stimulating exhaust note.
  • Neo-streamline design, including a flangeless-type fuel tank and two-into-one exhaust, gives the V Star 1300 that distinctive Star look.
  • All-new steel chassis gets 48 percent of the bike’s weight on the front tire, for quick, light handling and maneuverability.


  • 80-cubic-inch (1304cc) liquid-cooled, single overhead cam 60-degree V-twin with dual counterbalancers offers plenty of smooth performance.
  • Computer-controlled twin-barrel fuel injection provides optimal mixture whatever the temperature or altitude.
  • Four valves per cylinder (36mm intake, 32mm exhaust) provide optimum combustion efficiency; roller rocker arms reduce friction for better performance and reduced wear.
  • Chromed cylinder sleeves contain 100mm forged pistons for excellent durability and longevity.
  • 9.5:1 compression ratio and aggressive cam timing produce plenty of power across the board and a distinctive exhaust note.
  • Forged connecting rods ride a single crankpin for true V-twin sound and power.
  • Smooth-shifting five-speed transmission feeds power to an efficient, low-maintenance belt drive.
  • Sly cooling system routes liquid through hidden hoses and internal engine passages for air-cooled looks and liquid-cooled performance. Oil filter is easy to get to but also tucked nearly out of sight for clean, pure looks.
  • Hydraulic cam chain tensioner reduces noise and maintenance.
  • New AC generator and increased voltage regulator capacity optimizes performance.


  • All-new steel cradle frame has four solid engine mounts— including one atop the front cylinder head—for maximum rigidity and excellent handling.
  • Stylish, braced steel swingarm and rear wheel are controlled by a single linkage-mounted shock absorber, adjustable for spring preload.
  • 41mm fork tubes with stainless covers look great and serve up a smooth, controlled ride.
  • A thick, chromed handlebar rides in painted clamps for a custom look.
  • Flangeless-type fuel tank carries 4.5 gallons of fuel. Mounting the fuel pump in a separate, tucked-away sub-tank allows the narrow tank design.
  • New, seven-spoke cast wheels and matching rear pulley mount fat, 16-inch tires for a cool period look albeit with big contact patches on the road.
  • A pair of 298mm front brake discs provide excellent power and feel.
  • Strong, light and virtually maintenance-free belt final drive routes power smoothly and efficiently to the rear wheel.
  • Floating floorboards and an adjustable heel/toe shifter help provide a comfortable, low-effort ride.

Additional Features

  • Star quality paint, chrome and detailing vie for attention wherever you look; fenders are steel not plastic.
  • New design, retro-modern bar-mounted instrumentation contains analog speedometer along with LCD display; indicator lights for high beam, turn signal, low oil pressure, low fuel, coolant temperature, neutral—and engine diagnostic function.
  • Rider floorboards for comfort and room; heel/toe shifter makes moving through the five-speed gearbox a snap.
  • Bright multireflector headlight, LED taillight and amber turn signals behind clear lenses give a custom look.
  • Oxygen sensor and three-way catalyst reduce emissions.
