2013 Yamaha Raider SCL Features and Benefits

Engine:

•113-cubic-inch (1854cc) air-cooled, OHV with 4 valves per cylinder, pushrod 48-degree V-twin pumps out max torque at just 2500 rpm and max power at 4500 rpm for powerful, relaxed cruising.

•Four pushrod-activated valves and two spark plugs per cylinder provide optimum combustion efficiency along with classically beautiful engine architecture.

•Ceramic-composite plated cylinders for superior heat dissipation with forged pistons cooled by oil jets. Provides outstanding reliability and longer engine life.

•9.5:1 compression ratio and aggressive cam timing increase power output across the board.

•Computer-controlled, twin-bore fuel injection monitors multiple engine parameters to calculate perfect mixture under all conditions; wide-angle 12-hole fuel injectors provide excellent atomization.

•A 3.5-liter airbox is hidden in the area below the fuel tank for great performance and clean styling.

•Two-into-one-into-two exhaust with Exhaust Ultimate Power valve (EXUP®) inside boosts torque in the 2500~3500-rpm range.

•Special custom-machining of the cooling fin edges gives a jewel-like appearance to the engine as light hits it from different angles.

 

Chassis and Suspension:

•All-aluminum cast frame is light, rigid, and tuned for light, athletic handling. A light, Controlled-Fill, aluminum swingarm casting complements the bike’s lithe style.

•Low, sculpted rider and passenger seat of exclusive, two-toned genuine leather with orange stitching set this bike apart while maintaining the Raider SCL's casual, urban cruising style ergonomics.

•A 6-degree yoke angle—the first ever on a street-legal Star Motorcycle—makes it possible to achieve that custom look as well as neutral handling and straight-line cruisability: 33-degree rake plus 6 degrees yoke angle gives total rake of 39 degrees and 102mm of trail.

•Custom 5-spoke wheels co-developed by Star and Performance Machine are chrome plated for uncommon custom beauty. There’s 120/70-21-inch tire up front, and a wide, 210/40-18 out back—the tallest and widest ever on a Star.

•46mm fork tubes serve a sweet appearance and an excellent ride through 5.1 inches of wheel travel.

•A tucked-out-of-sight single shock out back provides a smooth ride under varying loads.

•The flangeless fuel tank gets two-tone Crimson Red/Intense Black paint for a rich, high quality look. It carries a full 4.2 gallons of fuel for an excellent cruising range.

•Front brake master cylinder with integrated lever operates a pair of 298mm front discs squeezed by strong monoblock calipers for excellent power and feel, with a 310mm disc out back.

•Strong, light and narrow belt final drive contains embedded carbon fiber for even greater strength.

•Wiring harness uses super-slim wires for compactness and lighter weight, and switchgear wiring is routed inside the handlebar for a clean appearance.

 

Additional Features:

•Left-thumb operated high-beam switch, and right-thumb activated accessory driving light switch for great visibility.

•Jewel-like fit and finish, and Star quality paint, chrome and attention to detail are evident all over the Raider SCL.

•Cool, tank-mounted instrumentation complements the custom look, and contains analog speedometer and fuel gauge, along with twin digital tripmeters, odometer and self-diagnostics.

•Bright multireflector headlight, LED taillight, and amber turn signals behind clear lenses give a custom look.

•02 sensor and three-way catalyst reduce emissions.
