– 2006 Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic
V-Star 1100 Classic
If we were to ask you if you wanted a powerful big-bore cruiser for the same kind of money you’d spend on most middleweights, we’re pretty sure the answer would be an emphatic yes.
So we’ll take the liberty of telling you a little more: the V-Star 1100 Classic features air-cooled V-twin power for effortless cruising, a 17-litre gas tank for all-day junkets, a nice long wheelbase, convenient shaft drive and lots more, including even more chrome detailing for 2005. One more question: Have we got your attention?
1,063cc, air-cooled, SOHC, 2 valves per cylinder, 75° V-twin produces outstanding low- and mid-range torque – maximum torque is reached at only 2,500 rpm – for exceptional overall cruising performance.
Forged, lightweight pistons provide excellent durability while reducing reciprocating mass for fast throttle response.
Ceramic composite cylinder plating ensures superior heat dissipation for better cooling, less friction and longer engine life.
Thick cylinder cooling fins enhance the stylish look while increasing cooling efficiency and reducing mechanical noise.
Dual Mikuni BSR 37mm carburetors with throttle position sensor feature a carburetor heater and handy, side-mounted air filter to ensure consistent fuel flow, great throttle response and optimum power throughout the rev range.
Transistorized coil ignition provides a hot spark for sure starts and is maintenance-free.
Automatic cam chain tensioners reduce maintenance and engine noise.
One-way, cam clutch-type starter decreases mechanical noise during starting.
Smooth-shifting, 5-speed transmission is well suited to both city and highway use.
Classic heel-toe shifter is a throwback to yesteryear.
Low-maintenance, chrome, exposed shaft drive delivers superior reliability and a clean, quiet ride.
2-into-2 exhaust system with dual shotgun-style, staggered pipes plays outstanding V-twin music. Replacement with aftermarket mufflers is simple.
Air Induction System (A.I.S.) reduces harmful CO and HC emissions.
Numerous chromed engine parts reinforce this motorcycle’s quality image.
Low-slung, large-diameter, double-cradle steel frame creates a strong, stylish machine with precise, predictable handling.
Long, 1,645mm (64.8″) wheelbase produces long and low retro profile, with spacious ergonomics for added rider comfort and solid, stable handling.
Beefy, 41mm front fork with 140mm (5.5″) of wheel travel smoothes out the bumps for incredible ride quality.
Fork shrouds, top triple clamp, and new one-piece handlebar holder are chromed for 2005.
Preload-adjustable, single rear shock lowers centre of gravity for better handling and a plush ride. There are 9 preload adjustments that allow the rider to tailor spring settings to match load and road conditions.
Rear shock is tucked out of sight for that classic, hardtail look. Rear wheel travel is 113mm (4.5″).
Low 710mm (28″) seat height enhances maneuverability and provides additional rider confidence by allowing most riders to put their feet flat on the ground.
Dual 298mm front disc brakes with twin piston calipers provide strong, confidence-inspiring stopping power.
282mm rear disc brake with opposed piston caliper
Comfortably placed, full-size rider floorboards enhance ride by minimizing vibration and fatigue.
