YAMAHA V Star 1300 2013 - 2014
YAMAHA V Star 1300 (2013 - 2014) Description & History: The 2013 V Star 1300 is a nifty cruiser designed for those who believe that a liter-class engine is a bit too small, but are not into throwing a leg over a big-bore chopper either. With an 1,304cc v-twin powering this machine, riders can rest assured they have plenty of torque and power on tap for both fast acceleration, slow, winding uphill mountain roads and long hauls at a comfortable highway speed.
The classic shape and chromed parts are beautifully complemented by the modern technology: the engine is fuel-injected and liquid-cooled and sports an aggressive cam timing, the hardtail looks come with a linkage-type rear shock for a comfy and predictable feel, while chunky brake discs provide dependable stopping force. Floorboards included as standard equipment.
