Yamaha XVS 1100 Drag Star
The Yamaha XVS 1100 Drag Star was introduced in 1999 as a replacement for the outdated Yamaha XV 1100 Virago. The motorcycle was based on the same engine as on Virago 1100, but with minor changes - in particular, new carburetors with throttle position sensors were used, which allowed slightly improved torque while maintaining power within 62 h.p. In addition, the XVS 1100 received a different frame, suspension and, accordingly, a more modern appearance.
In the North American market, the XVS1100 Drag Star was sold under the name “V-Star 1100”.

- Yamaha XVS1100 Drag Star / V-Star Classic - a classic version with extended fenders, alloy wheels (V-Star from 2005, Drag Star - spokes) and a wide front tire (130).
