With a long, low, lean-and-mean profile, traditional spoked wheels, and a bobbed tail rear fender, the V-Star 1100 Custom has the look and feel of a classic chopper from yesteryear.

In fact, when you see the low price tag, you might think that you've gone back in time. But one short ride will rule time travel out, thanks to the incredible attention to detail and the quality fit and finish that the Star family is famous for. Its powerful air-cooled, 65-cubic-inch V-twin pumps out lots of low-end torque, while a smooth-shifting 5-speed transmission and clean, quiet shaft drive put the power to the ground. Get ready to fly.

Engine:

1,063cc, air-cooled, SOHC, 2 valves per cylinder, 75°, V-twin produces outstanding low- and mid-range torque - maximum torque is reached at only 2,500 rpm - for exceptional overall cruising performance.

Forged, lightweight pistons provide excellent durability while reducing reciprocating mass for fast throttle response. Connecting rods are carburized for durability.

Ceramic composite cylinder plating ensures superior heat dissipation for better cooling, reduced friction and longer engine life.

Thick cylinder cooling fins enhance the stylish look while increasing cooling efficiency and reducing mechanical noise.

Dual Mikuni BSR 37mm carburetors with throttle position sensor feature an electronic fuel pump, carburetor heater and handy side-mounted air filter to ensure consistent fuel flow, great throttle response and optimum power throughout the rev range.

Maintenance-free, transistorized coil ignition provides a hot spark for sure starts.

Automatic cam chain tensioners reduce maintenance while silent-type cam chain also reduces engine noise.

One-way, cam clutch-type starter decreases mechanical noise during starting.

Smooth-shifting, 5-speed transmission is perfect for city or highway use.

Low-maintenance, chrome, exposed shaft drive delivers superior reliability and a clean, quiet ride.

2-into-2 exhaust system with dual shotgun-style staggered pipes plays outstanding V-twin music. Mufflers can easily be changed to aftermarket components, if desired.

Air Induction System (A.I.S.) reduces harmful CO and HC emissions.

Numerous chromed engine parts reinforce this motorcycle's quality image.

Chassis/Suspension:

Low-slung, large-diameter, double-cradle frame with 32° rake creates a strong, stylish machine with precise, predictable handling.

Extra-long 1640mm (64.6") wheelbase produces long and low retro profile, with spacious ergonomics for added rider comfort and relaxed, stable handling.

Class-lowest, 690mm (27.2") seat height enhances maneuverability and provides extra rider confidence.

41mm front fork with 140mm (5.5") of travel smoothes out the bumps and features chrome-plated chip protectors for added insurance against fork tube damage.

7-step spring preload-adjustable single rear shock is mounted horizontally under the engine, thereby lowering the centre of gravity for better handling and a plush ride.

Rear shock location provides that hidden classic, hardtail look. Rear wheel travel is 113mm (4.5").

Large-diameter, dual 298mm front discs with twin piston calipers provide strong, confidence-inspiring stopping power.

282mm rear disc brake with opposed piston caliper

Narrow, custom-style front tire on 18" wire-spoked, chrome wheel means sportier handling.

Wide, 15" rear tire and stylish "bobtail" fender with mudguard add a timeless touch and excellent mud and splash protection.

Low-profile, split tandem seats offer all-day rider comfort. Passenger seat is removable.

Large, 17-litre, teardrop fuel tank provides an extra long cruising range.

Eye-catching, tank-mounted speedometer features a large face for easy reading of odometer and tripmeter displays.

Features:

Industry-leading Star Family fit and finish features rich, lustrous paint and extensive chrome accents creating a stunningly timeless machine.

Locking compartment under side cover provides handy, secure storage for small items.

Chrome, "bullet-style", 60/55-watt, halogen headlight adds a custom image.

Low-maintenance, sealed battery ensures reliable, no-hassle starting.

Self-cancelling turn signals with stylish white lenses

Helmet lock

Steering lock

Convenient, handlebar-mounted choke lever

Forward-mounted footpegs provide a roomy, laid back riding position.

Bungee cord hooks on rear passenger footpeg mounts allow for easy tie-down.

The larger of Yamaha's V-Star motorcycle family offers big-bike power and style at a middleweight price. From the August 1999 issue of Motorcycle Cruiser magazine.
