2011 Star VMax | Quick Look

2011 Star Motorcycles

The granddaddy of the power cruiser movement, the Star V Max is stronger than ever, with its 102 cubic inch V-4 powerplant with double overhead cams and four-valves per cylinder.

It’s not weak off the bottom, but rev it up and the bike snaps into hyperdrive. If you aren’t holding on, you aren’t staying on.

Not a one trick pony, the VMax exhibits nice handling characteristics in the canyons, despite it shaft drive and claimed 683-pound wet weight.

Huge 52mm forks keep the V Max stable in corners, and Bridgestone radials stick.
