Overview

Description

Plenty of attitude in a surprisingly lean and low package - priced to leave more for you to express yourself with cool Custom Star Accessories. Now there's no reason to settle for less than a real Star.

  • The long and chopperesque V Star Custom is the also the lightest of the Stars, which means great handling and performance are along for the ride, too.
  • Dual exhausts, steel fenders, custom-looking clear turn signals, lots of chrome, etc. — the V Star Custom represents tremendous cruiser bang for the buck.
  • Classic rigid-look rear end serves up 3.4 inches of rear wheel travel damped by a hidden preload-adjustable shock, offering up a great ride.
  • 27.4-inch seat height lets even short riders get both feet on the pavement.
  • Special V Star Midnight Custom blacked-out version gets deep Raven paint and distinctive trim throughout.
Engine
  • Beautifully chromed and polished 40 cubic-inch (649cc) air-cooled, SOHC 70 degree V-twin cranks out torquey low- and mid-range power with minimal engine rpm — maximum torque is reached at only 3000 rpm — for powerful, smooth cruising performance.
  • Wide-ratio five-speed transmission ensures extremely usable, cruiser-friendly power delivery to the asphalt.
  • Low-maintenance shaft drive provides quiet, reliable performance.
  • Two-into-two chrome exhaust pipes create sleek styling and deliver maximum low- and mid-range engine output.
Chassis/Suspension
  • Stout, large-diameter steel frame designed to provide low seat height with ample rider legroom.
  • Flat, drag-style handlebars and bobbed fender evoke a look that's both sporty and stylish.
  • Long, 63.4-inch wheelbase adds to rider comfort and stable, predictable handling and creates a long and low retro look.
  • Large, plushly padded, low-profile seat provides exceptional rider comfort while low, 27.4-inch seat height allows rider to put feet down for extra confidence at stoplights.
  • 41mm aluminum telescopic front fork with 5.5 inches of travel and tube protectors ensures a smooth ride with stylishly sporty durability.
  • Link-type, preload-adjustable single rear shock with 3.4 inches of travel provides excellent handling and plusher ride quality
  • Rear shock tucked out of sight under sporty bobtail fender for that classic, hardtail look.
  • Single front disc and rear drum brakes deliver strong, confidence-inspiring stopping power.
  • Narrow front tire on wire-spoked wheel completes the Custom design and delivers quick steering for sporty handling.
Additional Features
  • Industry-leading Star Family fit and finish features rich, lustrous paint and extensive chrome accents that create a stunningly timeless machine.
  • Large, 4.2-gallon teardrop fuel tank features class-leading fuel capacity for an extra long-distance cruising range.
  • Beautiful, tank-mounted speedometer designed with a large face for easy reading of tripmeter/odometer displays and turn signal, neutral, high beam, and engine diagnostic indicator lights.
  • Chrome, bullet-style 60/55-watt halogen headlight adds a nice stylish touch and maximizes nighttime visibility.
  • Maintenance-free 12V 10AH battery ensures reliable, no-fuss starting.
