– 2000 Yamaha V-Star 1100 Custom
Yamaha is announcing an all-new Classic to this successful family: the V Star 1100 Classic! Based closely on its V Star 1100 Custom sibling, the 1100 Classic is sure to be a great addition to the V Star line. With the 2000 V Star 1100 Classic’s release, the V Star family rumbles into the new millennium totaling four models, including the 1100 Custom and the original two V Stars introduced in 1998, the 40-cubic-inch V Star Custom and V Star Classic.
V Star 1100 Custom
With a seat height of 27 inches and powerful 75-degree V-twin engine, the V Star 1100 Custom offers the best of both worlds. Inspired by the 1998 V Star Custom, the long and low V Star 1100 Custom features great styling, a rigid, full-size chassis, stable handling and strong power delivery.
The V Star’s 65-cubic-inch (1100cc) engine features ceramic composite cylinder linings, forged pistons and carburized connecting rods for better reliability and performance. A single 37mm Mikuni carburetor with throttle position sensor (TIPS) help deliver crisp throttle response.
The V Star 1100 Custom offers all the benefits of the middleweight V Stars, like confidence-inspiring handling and ease of maintenance, with the added power of a big bore cruiser. Along with the extra muscle, Yamaha engineers improved the riding experience by adding dual disc brakes up front, and a split solo/tandem seat to give one the option of cruising the boulevard alone, or sharing the highway with a friend.
The V Star 1100 Custom comes in Onyx and Deep Purple, and is available now in dealerships nationwide at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $7,899 US.
