Engine: The 1304cc (80 cubic inches), 60-degree, SOHC, V-twin engine delivers smooth power to the ground, while maintaining the classic big cruiser sound and pulse characteristics.
Engine: Fuel injected—each cylinder is fed by its own injector spraying into twin 36mm intake valves, while the twin bore design allows the computer-controlled system to feed a precise amount of fuel/air mixture to the engine. The result is strong, smooth and seamless performance across the full range of engine rpm.
Engine: Four valves per cylinder (36mm intake, 32mm exhaust) provide optimum combustion efficiency; roller rocker arms reduce friction for better performance and reduced wear.
Engine: Ceramic composite cylinder sleeves contain 100mm forged pistons for excellent durability and longevity.
Engine: 9.5:1 compression ratio and aggressive cam timing produce plenty of power across the board and a distinctive exhaust note.
Engine: Forged connecting rods ride a single crankpin for true V-twin sound and power.
Engine: Sly cooling system routes liquid through hidden hoses and internal engine passages for air-cooled looks and liquid-cooled performance. Oil filter is easy to get to but also tucked nearly out of sight for clean looks.
Engine: The belt drive transfers power from the transmission to the wheel with authority. The belt system is virtually maintenance free and delivers a quicker, more impressive throttle response feeling than a shaft drive.
Engine: The classic cylinder fin styling of an air-cooled engine with the consistent potency of a liquid-cooled power plant. With the radiator set back between the down tubes discretely routed plumbing, the V Star 1300 Tourer’s classic beauty shines through.
Engine: Hydraulic cam chain tensioner reduces noise and maintenance.
Chassis/Suspension: Built on a double cradle steel frame, giving the bike a rigid base for nimble handling, while allowing enough frame flex to be comfortable on the open road.
Chassis/Suspension: The swingarm looks sweet and gives the bike its great handling character. Mated with belt guards, the swingarm’s sleek design is intergrated into the overall styling of the whole bike. This allows excellent road bump absorption for all-day comfort on the great wide open.
Chassis/Suspension: 41mm fork tubes with stainless covers look great and serve up a smooth, controlled ride.
Chassis/Suspension: The fuel tank is sculpted low and sleek for style and comfort, with a flush-fitting, aeronautical-style gas cap incorporated into the tank’s sleek, flangeless-type design. The tank holds a generous 4.9 gallons of fuel, thanks to a remotely located sub tank that also houses the fuel pump, for plenty of traveling range on the open road.
Chassis/Suspension: Seven-spoke cast wheels and matching rear pulley mount fat, 16-inch tires for a cool period look albeit with big contact patches on the road.
Chassis/Suspension: Dual 298mm front and single rear disc brakes. Provides consistent and predictable stopping power for driving in traffic or out on the open highway.
Chassis/Suspension: The handlebar bend is designed for a relaxed riding position.
Chassis/Suspension: The shape of the seat has been designed with a “dish” shape for great comfort, and it allows riders to touch the ground easily.
