2016 Star V Star 250 | Buyer's Guide
V Star 250

The smallest Star is a great learner’s motorcycle, as well as a highly competent urban cruiser. With a long-stroke motor, torque is more plentiful than you would expect, and the V Star 250 can work its way through city traffic and is credible for short jaunts on the freeway.

A wet weight of 326 pounds gives you an idea of how agile this small motorcycle is, which is a huge plus when riding through a crowded metropolis. Wire wheels, 26mm Mikuni carb, air cooling and a chrome exhaust give the V Star 250 a classic look.
