2016 Star V Star 950 Tourer

With a claimed range of over 200 miles, the 2016 Star V Star 950 Tourer is a serious pavement pounder. Lighter, smaller, and less powerful than most cruising tourers, the air-cooled 57.5-cubic-inch machine is welcoming to newer riders looking to get on the open road.

The seat height of 26.6 inches is not intimidating, and disc brakes at both ends add to rider confidence. Forged pistons, four valves per cylinder, and ceramic-coated cylinders makes the most of the modest displacement.

This year, there is no standard V Star 950, so the Tourer’s backrest and windshield is quickly detached. They are locked into place when needed, but only require the ignition key to be set free.
