2004 Yamaha V-Star Classic Review

2004 Yamaha V-Star Classic

Now have a look at the price tag. And get ready to catch your breath …

The middleweight cruiser that has reached new heights in performance, styling and value ever since its debut — and in the process, redefined what middleweight cruising is all about.

One look will reveal the obvious Star Family traits – brilliant chrome and luminous paint, sculpted steel fenders hugging wire-spoked wheels wearing fat, full-size tires – and you might even catch yourself thinking, This is a middleweight?

Long and low, 64-inch wheelbase. Brawny, shaft-driven 40-cubic-inch V-twin breathing through beefy dual exhausts.

Motorcycle Cruiser crowned it both “Cruiser of the Year” and “Best Value” the very first season it hit the streets, hailing it as bike that “has raised the bar for middleweight cruisers” .
