2009 Yamaha V Star 650 Classic

2009 Yamaha V Star 650 Classic
MSRP $6,690

This 650-class model earns its “Classic” status by virtue of retro-styled valanced steel fenders, chromed fork shrouds, over-sized headlight and time-tested 40 cubic inch engine. Like the Custom version, the Classic benefits from an easy-to-ride, midrange-weighted powerband and a wide-ratio, five-speed gearbox. The V Star Classic is light, maneuverable and ready for you to make it your own.
