2013 Star Raider S, A Chrome-loaded Stylish Machine

The next year's Star Raider S is aiming to bring together a lot of classic elements in a package that's as good-looking as it is a top-notch performance beast. And judging by the info that's available at the moment, Star's engineers and designers have done a great job.

Modesty is strange for the 2013 Star Raider S: the massive 1854cc Twin-Bore electronic injection V-Twin engine says enough bout this bike. It hasn't been made for the weak-handed or the faint of heart. Getting on this bike means you're looking for off-the-shelf fun and performance specs, and are willing to play in the major league.

A 6-degree yoke offers the coveted long-rake looks but retains the top handling and maneuverability, while the cast aluminium frame and the aggressive wheels help seeing the job done. The 2013 Raider S is also loaded with the biggest tire even on a star: the 210/40-18 rear rubber making zero compromises in looks and style.

The 2013 Star Raider S also comes with easier clutch operation, a 5-speed gearbox with belt final drive, hidden rear shock with adjustable pre-load and impeccable top-drawer paint job and decorative details. Price tag: $15,690 (€12.260).
