New Yamaha V-Star 1300 Review

Sunday, March 11th 2012. | Yamaha

New Yamaha V-Star 1300 Review  has always created new motor with an attractive appearance and a very good engine with very advanced technology, such as the motor that was launched this year is the Yamaha V-Star 1300, this bike is perfect for exploring the continent with the ease and comfort.

Because cruiser riders like to have a big pulse from the engine, a single-pin crankshaft is utilized. To cancel out the inherent high-frequency vibration of this design, two single-axis crankshaft balancers tune out the unwanted vibes while keeping the desirable pulse. This is no toss-away idea, either. When running an oversquare engine, the pistons are larger in diameter than the stroke’s length, meaning that more weight is thrust up and down with each stroke. These larger pistons mean that larger vibrations need to be tamed. Nothing less than the rider’s enjoyment is at stake.

In a nod to the engine’s classic (read: air-cooled) styling, water and oil lines are routed internally, leaving a better view of the brushed cooling fins. Plus, the radiator is tucked stealthily between the frame’s downtubes. Clever hose routing completes the illusion with the upper hose rising up to the space under the tank while the lower is obscured behind the motor mounts. A wet sump oil system aids in the uncluttered look and helps to keep the engine’s mass centered and low in the chassis. V Star 1100 owners will be envious of the 1300’s spin-on oil filter tucked out of sight under the engine.

The fuel-metering duties occur in dual, 40mm throttle bodies fed by 12-hole fuel-injector nozzles for better atomization. The ECU monitors and updates the mixture via an oxygen sensor. When combined with the three-way honeycomb catalyst hidden away in the 2-into-1 exhaust, the closed-loop system yields emissions that meet both 2008 EPA and EU3 regulations. The benefit to riders, however, is that the oxygen sensor will allow the engine to self-adjust to atmospheric conditions, such as altitude, and deliver the best mixture and, hence, the best power possible for the riding situation. (See, a press introduction in the mountains does make sense.)

Power is transferred from the engine to the transmission via a 10mm-larger-diameter clutch. To assist in managing the increased horsepower, nine fiber plates (an increase of one) are called to duty. The transmission features taller gear ratios, with fourth gear on the 1300 providing the same ratio as top gear on the 1100. A true overdrive fifth gear on the 1300 also helps to keep the vibrations at bay by helping minimize the engine speed to the tune of 450 rpm during highway riding. The Star engineers claim the tachometer (if there were one) would read only 3400 rpm at 70 mph.The gear dogs are square cut for more precise shifting. Finally, the stylish but old shaft has been replaced by a slinky carbon-fiber-reinforced, 28.6mm belt.

To create the big-bike look and feel, the New Yamaha V-Star 1300 Review had its wheelbase bumped by 1.7 inches over the V Star 1100’s. Despite the increased length, the seat height is still a inseam-friendly 28 inches. The styling is what Star reps termed “modern classic,” and, you know, the term fits. The shapely headlight nacelle complements the lines of the tank when viewed from above. The sultry shape of the tank owes at least some measure to the clever 0.4-gallon sub tank located below the seat; the main tank can maintain the appropriate proportions without sacrificing looks, touring range or mass centralization. The instruments’ move from the tank to the handlebar is also a practical as well as stylistic change. Riders won’t have to take their eyes as far off the road to check the gauges, and when they do, the object they’re looking at is quite pleasant.

Simply looking at the V Star 1300, one can see how far cruiser styling-and fit and finish-have advanced in eight years. From the the sexy reflector headlight to the shapely swingarm that employs stylistic touches derived from the Roadliner, the V Star 1300 comports itself as you might expect a flagship model to, rather than a midsize cruiser. The seven-spoke cast aluminum wheels and even the tank emblem (which emulates the speed lines of the Roadliner’s tank) add to the visual value of the V Star 1300.

New Yamaha V-Star 1300 Review powered by a sporty 1304cc, fuel injected, liquid-cooled, V-Twin powerplant, the 2011 Yamaha V-Star 1300 boasts class leading performance, handling and comfort. Easy to ride and easy to touch the ground, We finished off this midsize cruiser with a little steamlined style and plenty of Yamaha Star quality and durability. You can imagine for yourself how easy and comfortable to explore the continent with the V-Star 1300. If you interested to have this bike, go to the dealership in the city nearest you because it is only offered for $ 10.890 (Raven)
