2011 Star Stryker Video

A huge trend underway is the classic custom chopper look straight from the factory, and that’s just what Star Motorcycles (Yamaha’s Cruiser Line) was after when it designed the 2011 Stryker.

With high-end looks and a low-end price tag, the 2011 Stryker features a 1304cc V-twin engine that churns out that big-engine feel. The single overhead cam, 60-degree 80-CI V-Twin features dual counterbalancers for smooth performance, and spot optimal fuel injection.

With four valves per cylinder, optimum combustion efficiency is maintained while roller rocker arms reduce friction for better performance and reduced wear.

The 2011 Star Stryker also features ceramic-composite cylinder sleeves that contain 100mm forged pistons for excellent durability and longevity.

And when it comes to being recognized, the Star Stryker has an aggressive look to it, with 1-inch handlebars connected directly to the upper triple clamp for a muscular but clean look.

The 2011 Star Stryker has a starting MSRP of $10,990 for the Raven model and $11,240 for Impact Blue or Reddish Copper colors.

Attached is a YouTube video, highlighting all the aspects of the 2011 Star Stryker by Yamaha.
