2005 Yamaha V Star 650 Classic

 

- 2005 Yamaha V Star 650 Silverado

Big on Value, Huge on looks
If you’re looking for a cruiser that’s lean and low-slung without breaking your pocket, the V-Star 650 Silverado is your answer. It’s light and agile. Few other middleweights deliver the same laid back riding experience with a price tag to leave you speechless. But then again, few other cruisers are made by Yamaha.

The V Star Silverado® features all the performance and glamour of its V Star Classic sibling, with a casual touring twist that includes -

Adjustable windshield
Studded seat
Backrest
Hard leather saddlebags
Long and low with a 64-inch wheelbase powered by a brawny, shaft-driven, 40-cubic-inch V-twin.

And for 2005, you'll get more -

More chrome: shiny fork covers, upper triple and handlebar clamps.
More style: stylish new speedometer face, clear turn signal lenses and new 3D side cover emblems.
Need to go cross-town...or cross-country? The choice is yours.


Features & Benefits

Large, low-profile, studded touring seat makes it easier for riders to touch their feet to the ground while stopped.

Passenger pillion pad and backrest provide unbeatable long-range comfort.

Medium-size adjustable windshield enhances riding experience by keeping wind and weather off rider.

Roomy, studded soft leather saddlebags look great and provide ample storage for longer trips.


New for 2005
More chrome: shiny fork covers, upper triple and handlebar clamps.

More style: stylish new speedometer face, clear turn signal lenses and new 3D side cover emblems.


Engine:
Beautifully chromed and polished 40 cubic-inch (649cc), air-cooled, 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 5-speed transmission ensures extremely usable, cruiser-friendly power delivery to the asphalt.

Low-maintenance shaft drive provides quiet, reliable performance.

2-into-2 chrome exhaust pipes create sleek styling and deliver maximum low- and mid-range engine output.


Chassis/Suspension:
Stout, large-diameter steel frame designed to provide low seat height with ample rider legroom.

Long, 64-inch wheelbase adds to rider comfort and stable, predictable handling and creates a long and low retro look.

Stylish heel/toe shifter adds versatility and enhances overall cruising comfort.

Comfortably placed full-size rider floorboards enhance ride by minimizing vibration and fatigue.

Link-type, preload-adjustable single rear shock with 3.9 inches of travel lowers center of gravity for excellent handling and plusher ride quality.

Beefy, telescopic front fork with stainless steel covers and 5.5 inches of travel ensures a smooth ride with stylish durability.

Rear shock tucked out of sight for a classic, hardtail look.

Single front disc and rear drum brakes deliver strong, confidence-inspiring stopping power.

Wide, retro-style handlebars evoke classic design with roomy ergonomics for enhanced rider comfort.

Fat front tire on wire-spoked wheel combines retro styling with solid handling and traction.


Additional Features:
Industry-leading Star Family fit and finish features rich, lustrous paint and extensive chrome accents that create a stunningly timeless machine.

Deeply valanced steel front and rear fenders both durable and unmistakably classic.

Large, 4.2-gallon teardrop fuel tank features class-leading fuel capacity for extra long-distance cruising range.

Beautiful, tank-mounted speedometer designed with a large face for easy reading of tripmeter/odometer displays and turn signal, neutral, high beam, and engine diagnostic indicator lights.

Chrome 60/55-watt halogen headlight adds a nice stylish touch and maximizes nighttime visibility.

Maintenance-free 12V 10AH battery ensures reliable, no-fuss starting.

Locking helmet holder and storage compartment add convenience and security.
