About the 2002 Yamaha V Star Classic

The Yamaha V Star Classic, in traditional cruiser form, boasts a SOHC, air-cooled, 70-degeree V-Twin. But to accommodate the cruiser enthusiasts who does not necessarily want to ride a hog (figuratively speaking), the engine is 649 cc. This contributes to an ultra-low 28-inch seat height and highly manageable 495 pounds (dry).

The bike also offers boatloads of chrome, a flashy, two-tone, pinstriped paint scheme and a manufacturer’s suggested retail price below six grand. In a nutshell, the V Star Classic offers cruiser attitude without weighing heavily on your pocketbook or your driveway.
