2011 Star V Star 950 | Quick Look

2011 Star Motorcycle

A relatively new addition to the Star family, the Star V Star 950 handles the smaller end of the mid-size equation.

With a four-valve, overhead cam design for each slightly oversquare cylinder in the 60-degree V-twin configuration, the 57 cubic inch motor pushes out plenty of air-cooled power.

Ground clearance is good for canyon cruising and the 170mm rear tire is not reluctant to turn. Floorboards make for solid footing, and a large 300mm single front disc with a four-piston caliper is well suited to the bike’s mid-size performance capabilities.
