Yamaha's Star Motorcycles unleashes its 2013 lineup, which includes the accessories-laden V Star 1300 Deluxe bagger.
Built around a 1304cc (80 cubic inch) V-Twin engine with a 9.5:1 compression ratio, aggressive cam timing and fuel injection, the V Star 1300 Deluxe with its 2 into 1 exhaust has the sound and power you need to get up and go. With the V Star 1300 Deluxe, Star Motorcycles has redefined the Bagger class of touring motorcycles.
Chassis features include a double-cradle steel frame for a light and nimble feeling, and handling is said to be outstanding given the slightly forward-mounted engine and 16-in. wheels. Front and rear fenders are real steel.
The fenders are real steel, front and rear, which adds to the quality look and feel, and makes for easier customization.
Designed specifically for the V Star 1300 Deluxe, the fork-mounted fairing houses an integrated sound system, Garmin Zumo 665 GPS unit that is motorcycle friendly, waterproof, Bluetooth wireless connectivity and is satellite radio capable. The sound system is iPod/iPhone compatible with easy handlebar mounted controls.
