About the 2005-2007 Yamaha V Star Classic

Beautifully chromed and polished 40 cubic-inch (649cc), air-cooled, SOHC 70° V-twin cranks out torquey low- and mid-range power with minimal engine rpm — maximum torque is reached at only 3000 rpm — for powerful, smooth cruising performance. Wide-ratio five-speed transmission ensures extremely usable, cruiser-friendly power delivery to the asphalt. Low-maintenance shaft drive provides quiet, reliable performance. Two-into-two chrome exhaust pipes create sleek styling and deliver maximum low- and mid-range engine output.

Retro style is even cooler when it’s combined with modern engineering, including an OHC air-cooled V-twin and shaft drive. Rider floorboards, steel fenders, custom-looking clear turn signals, lots of chrome, etc. — the V Star Classic represents tremendous cruiser bang for the buck. Rigid-look frame provides a great ride via a hidden rear shock with 3.9 inches of travel.
