2014 V Star 1300 Deluxe, the Clean, Lean Tourer [Photo Gallery]
Building on the proven V Star 1300 heritage, the 2014 Deluxe boasts a fork-mounted fairing for exceptional protection against elements, and also comes with a dash-integrated Garmin Zumo 665 GPS and two loudspeakers. The connectivity comprises both iPod/iPhone and Bluetooth, and XM satellite radio and weather alerts are supported with monthly subscription.
The 2014 V Star 1300 Deluxe is powered by the same 80cui (1304cc) v-twin engine of the model family, mated to a 5-speed gearbox. Despite the air-cooled looks, the power unit is liquid-cooled, so riding in the slow city traffic during the warm season will be easier on the oil and engine wear.
Classic steel fenders and 7-spoke cast wheels are standard, just like the triple 298mm disc brakes. Hard sidecases are standard, just like the mid-size windscreen. Lush chrome accents are used liberally on the 2014 V Star 1300 Deluxe, evoking the golden era design.
If the American flavor is not your fav game, the 2014 V Star 1300 Deluxe might fit the bill quite nicely, especially as it comes with a $13,790 (€10,705) price tag.
