2003 Yamaha V Star 1100 Silverado

2003 Yamaha V Star 1100 Silverado
MSRP $9,399

The venerable V-Star 1100 series is one of the bargains in the 1000cc-plus cruiser offerings. Using an engine that is not much changed from the old Virago 1100, the V-Star line consists of three models. Just $7899 will put you in the saddle of the Custom model, with its minimalist front fender and bobbed rear fender setting it apart from the valanced-fendered Classic versions. New for 2003 are optional cast aluminum wheels that bump up the spoked-wheel-equipped $8199 price by 300 bucks.
