About the 2007 Yamaha V Star 1300

Yamaha has taken the traditional cruiser into a bold new territory with the all new; eye catching V-Star 1300. Traditional yet modern, classic yet avant-garde. From the throaty exhaust note to the pulse feel of the fuel injected V-twin engine, the V-Star 1300 offers something we call “sensual performance”. The perfect blend of soul stirring power, handling and comfort highlights the Man-Machine relationship which is so important to owner satisfaction.

Authentic cruiser features like belt drive and steel fenders open up the customization possibilities even further. All-new midsize Star brings modern classic styling along for a lighter, sportier, hot-rod-inspired ride. All-new 80-cubic-inch (1304cc) liquid-cooled, fuel-injected V-twin produces excellent power across the board along with a highly stimulating exhaust note.

Neo-streamline design, including a flangeless-type fuel tank and two-into-one exhaust, gives the V Star 1300 that distinctive Star look. All-new steel chassis gets 48 percent of the bike’s weight on the front tire, for quick, light handling and maneuverability.
