An adjustable windscreen keeps the bugs and the breeze at bay, a pair of studded leather saddlebags have plenty of room for a couple days worth of whatever you need and a passenger backrest keeps your Co-pilot happy.

When you’re looking for big-time torque, big-time style, and loads of comfort, check out the V-Star 1100 Silverado. This bike features shaft drive, an adjustable windshield, saddlebags and passenger backrest. One of the best and most popular mid displacement cruisers.

The V-Star 1100 Silverado. It’s a classic, booming, big torque cruiser with a little something extra.

Start with an air-cooled V-twin for effortless cruising, a 17-litre tank for all-day junkets, full rider floorboards, and much more. But when you add an adjustable windshield, passenger backrest and leather side bags, and you’re all set to roll for the long haul. With an extra-long wheelbase, you can really stretch out — just like the road in front of you.

Transistorized coil ignition is maintenance-free and ensures fast starts and great engine performance.
