- 2000 Yamaha V-Star 650 Classic

If you believe there's more to life than work, and the real definition of freedom 55 is riding your bike without a care at 55 mph, then the heart of a cruiser beats within you. If you believe that chrome and leather are the basic building blocks of life, and that the only real artery is made of asphalt then jump on a Yamaha and experience the pleasure of cruising the endless black ribbon.

Yamaha cruisers ... customize your free time


2000 Yamaha V Star Classic and 2000 Yamaha V Star Custom

The 40-cubic-inch, 70-degree V-twin V Star Custom and Classic are Yamaha's top-selling value-priced cruisers. Both maintain the build quality of their Royal Star siblings that includes such features as hydraulic disc brakes and large diameter steel frames. The 4.3-gallon teardrop fuel tank, including a 0.9-gallon reserve, gives the V Star Custom and V Star Classic the largest capacity in their class. Mounted atop the tank is a large-faced speedometer. A powerful 60/55-watt halogen headlight enhances night visibility and a maintenance-free battery ensures easy, dependable starting. And if one wishes to personalize his V Star, the possibilities are numerous thanks to the availability of more than 90 Genuine Yamaha accessories.

With the user-friendly combination of a low seat height, smaller engine, affordable price and low maintenance, the V Star Custom and Classic are perfect for all levels of rider, and especially those with fewer years of riding experience. In fact, it's estimated that 15 to 17 percent of all V Star customers are first-time buyers.

The V Star Classic and Custom are available in two colors - Onyx or Cranberry Red/Cherry Red - and will be available in Yamaha dealerships worldwide in June 1999 at a manufacturers' US suggested retail price of $5,999 and $5,699, respectively.

All four V Stars feature full-size wheelbases, offer classic cruiser styling and are powered by polished and chromed air-cooled, V-twin engines equipped with dual chrome exhaust pipes for optimized low-end performance. The V Stars also offer low-maintenance shaft drive for a reliably smooth ride.
