2011 Star Stryker | Quick Look

2011 Yamaha Star Motorcycle

Brand new to the Star lineup in 2011, the Stryker takes superficial styling cues from its big brother, the Raider, and reinterprets them in a unique fashion.

With a highly manageable motor it shares with the V Star 1300 line, the Stryker has plenty of attitude.

Relatively light weight, it handles urban situations effortlessly, thanks in no small part to a 26.4-inch seat height.

On the open road, the bike has plenty of power and stability for highway riding. It’s a comfortable machine with good handling and trustworthy braking, in-town and out.
