2011 Star Motorcycle
Chrome is the name of the Star Raider S’s game, as it gives the treatment to the triple clamps, fork sliders, air box cover, engine covers, headlight housing, handlebar risers and more.
A 33-degree rake on the VX1900S’ frame is buttressed by a six-degree offset on the triple clamps, pushing the front end out aggressively.
A 210mm rear tire helps turning, and the 18-inch/21-inch front/rear wheel size conforms to traditional chopper standards.
Maximum torque is attained at a mere 2500 rpm with horsepower following at 4500 rpm, so grunt and go are readily available aboard the Star Raider S.
