The V Star 1100 Classic... a fully stylized big-bore cruiser priced in the ballpark where most middleweight machines usually play.

It's got all the goods - a potent, 65-cubic-inch V-twin mill tuned for big low-end grunt; shaft drive; long, 64.5" wheelbase; classic wire-spoked wheels; and, of course, incomparable fit and finish.

Full-size, valanced steel fenders, full rider floorboards and just the right amount of chrome here and there to let you know this is one polished package.

The V Star 1100 Classic.  Styling straight out of yesteryear.
