There are a whole bunch of reasons to check out the V-Star 250, but the most intriguing is it’s authentic V-twin powerplant, which means that you’re getting full-sized rumble and styling in an easy to ride, lightweight bike.


The soft rumble of the V-Star 250 comes from its 249 cc V-Twin engine, a perfect powerplant for new riders wanting that authentic V-Twin feeling.


The V-Star 250 welcomes novice riders with manageable power, a smooth-shifting 5-speed transmission, light clutch pull and a low 685 mm (27-inch) seat height.


Light and nimble with smooth power and a low seat for easy handling makes it a stylish entry level V‑twin.
