2010 Star Raider | Motorcycle Preview
Following its many motorcycle press awards, the custom chopper-inspired Raider is back for 2010. This motorcycle continues to turn heads anywhere it goes with its raked-out front end, fuel-injected V-twin engine, fat rear tire, aluminum frame, high quality paint and chrome and a fit and finish attention to detail like no other.
This modern performance cruiser screams attitude. The 34-degree rake plus 6 degrees yoke angle gives total rake of 40 degrees and 102mm of trail, while bringing the fork closer to the steering axis, making it possible to achieve that custom look as well as neutral handling and straight-line cruising comfort.
Raider and Raider S models are powered by a 113 cubic inch (1854cc) fuel-injected V-twin engine. Maximum torque, enhanced by EXUP, the exhaust power valve that maximizes power across the rev range, is achieved at just 2500 rpm.
Aiding in handling and good looks is the fat 210-section radial back tire. Coupled with an aluminum frame and swing arm, the Raider and Raider S are designed to go like no other production cruiser as well.
The 2010 Raider will be available in dealerships nationwide beginning September 2010 with a starting MSRP of $14,190, and Raider S, with more custom-look chrome accents, starting at $14,790. The 2010 Raider will be available in Candy Red and Liquid Silver colors. The Raider S will be available in Raven and Deep Blue and available in January.
