For 2016, Star will be eliminating the standard V Star 1300 and V Star 950 cruisers from its lineup. Instead, the V Star 1300 Tourer and V Star 950 Tourer will do double duty.

This will be possible for the two V Star Tourers includes due to the addition of a quick release windshield and backrest for both bikes. The windshield and backrest are locked into place to prevent theft, and require the ignition key to be removed, or reinstalled. The bags, however, will remain integrated onto the V Star 950 and 1300 Tourers.

The 2016 V Star 1300 Tourer will retail for $12,390, and will come in Charcoal Silver, and hit the showroom floor in January 2016. The V Star 950 Tourer arrives two months earlier, and will have a MSRP of $9790, and a Raven color.

With a fork-mounted dash-equipped faring, audio system with GPS, and hard bags that lock, the V Star 1300 Deluxe is the Star’s premier cruiser tourer. Available in January 2016, the Raspberry Metallic V Star 1300 Deluxe’s MSRP is $14,090.

The V Star 1300s feature a liquid-cooled, 80-cubic-inch SOHC 4vpc motor with fuel injection, a five-speed transmission with belt final drive, and an oversquare (100mm x 83mm) bore and stroke.
