Star Motorcycles V Star 1300 Deluxe Preview
Friday, March 1, 2013
The motorcycle cruiser segment has been quiet for some time now but Star Motorcycles shakes things up with the release of its all-new V Star 1300 Deluxe
($13,690). This fresh faced bagger is powered by a mid-sized 1304cc (80 cubic-inch) V-Twin engine that will appeal to riders who don’t need the power or monthly payment of a larger model.
After spending a day riding it I am blown away by not only its value (it’s thousands less than any other manufactures bagger-type offering) but its performance, too. The build quality is exceptional and at a level higher than any other cruiser I’ve ridden recently. Attention to detail is equally exceptional and I’m in awe by how each component including its two-speaker stereo (It’s loud, clear, and simple to use), GPS (comes standard with a cleanly integrated and removable unit from Garmin), and suspension, engine and brakes work together delivering ride quality and character of models that cost way more.
If you’ve always wanted a bagger in the garage but have resisted because of the cost the V Star 1300 Deluxe might just change your tune. Keep your web browser locked on Motorcycle-USA.com for the First Ride review on Wednesday, March 6.
