– 2002 Yamaha V-Star Custom Review
2002 Yamaha V-Star Custom
A Boulevard Bad Boy…
Lean and mean and low-slung is the name of the game here, with boulevard bad boy styling and a price tag that will make one wonder why they waited so long to take one home.
Comes with a pavement-skimming, 25.6-inch seat height and long, 64-inch wheelbase. And 40 cubic inches of genuine V-twin muscle, tuned just right to pump out serious torque from idle on up through a low-maintenance shaft drive.
Then, of course, there’s the look: bobtail rear fender; hidden, hardtail-like rear suspension; drag-style handlebars and beefy forks.
