Motorcycle Preview

Intended to complement Star’s successful big-inch Raider motorcycle, the 2011 Star Stryker features the same aggressive custom attitude with a more manageable motor.

The engine on the Stryker is a 1304cc liquid=cooled 60° V-twin, with a bore of 100mm and a stroke of 83mm. The four-valve heads have a compression ratio of 9.5:1 and use overhead cams.

The liners are ceramic composite housing forged pistons, and dual 40mm throttle bodies with 12-hold nozzles deliver the air-fuel mixture.

The 2011 Star Stryker’s double cradle frame is steel with the dual-counterbalanced motor rigidly mounted as a stressed member. The seat height is 26.4″ for a sit-in motorcycle riding position.

The 6° steering yoke giving the forks a distinctive 40° rake, and the weight bias is 45% front and 55% rear. The Stryker has 41mm forks and a well-hidden linkage-assisted single rear shock.

Cast aluminum five-spoke wheels are used on the Stryker, with a 210 rear on an 18″ rim, and a 21″ front with a 120 mounted. The wheels are also the same dimensions as the custom-look Raider motorcycle.

A single 320mm front disc is used up front, in addition to a 310mm rear brake. A belt-drive is used to transmit power from the five-speed transmission.

Over 60 motorcycle accessories will be available from Star for the Stryker, including windshields, leather saddlebags, additional lighting, custom wheels, backrests, chrome and guards. Steel fenders are stock to facilitate customizers.

MSRP for the 2011 Star Stryker motorcycle begins at $10,990, and the three available colors are Raven, Impact Blue and Reddish Copper.
