Midsize Star brings modern classic styling along for a lighter, sportier, hot-rod-inspired ride. 80-cubic-inch (1304cc) liquid-cooled, fuel-injected V-twin produces excellent power across the board along with a highly stimulating exhaust note. Modern-classic design, including a flangeless gas tank and two-into-one exhaust, gives the V Star 1300 that distinctive Star look. Steel
chassis gets 48 percent of the bike’s weight on the front tire, for quick, light handling and maneuverability.
Authentic cruiser features such as belt
drive and steel fenders open up the customization possibilities even further.

Engine: Computer-controlled twin-barrel fuel injection provides optimal mixture whatever the temperature or altitude.
Engine: Four valves per cylinder (36mm intake, 32mm exhaust) provide optimum combustion efficiency; roller rocker arms reduce friction for better performance and reduced wear. Engine: Ceramic composite cylinder sleeves contain 100mm forged pistons for excellent durability and longevity. Engine: 9.5:1 compression ratio and aggressive cam timing produce plenty of power across the board and a distinctive exhaust note.
