Yamaha XVS1300CT V-Star Tourer

The Yamaha XVS1300 Midnight Star entered the market in 2007, replacing Yamaha XVS1100 Drag Star (V-Star 1100). In the American market, the model was called Yamaha V-Star 1300.

Compared to its predecessor, the Yamaha XVS1300 has received a number of significant technical and visual differences:

  • Engine. Instead of the obsolete Virago 1100 engine, a new, increased volume, liquid-cooled engine with 4 valves per cylinder was developed. Maximum performance: 73 hp power and 106 Nm of torque.
  • Intake system. Electronic fuel injection with two throttle valves is replacing the carburetors.
  • Drive unit. The classic universal joint, installed from the Virago series to the entire XVS model series, has been replaced by a belt transmission, which is traditional for the American market.
  • New modifications. At the beginning, only 2 versions were presented - regular and Tourer. However, in 2011, a full-fledged custom version `` XVS1300C Custom appeared, which was sold on the American market under the name `` Stryker , and in 2013 - `` Deluxe (XVS1300BG) , which differed batwing, audio system and navigation.

In 2009, a junior replacement was proposed Yamaha XVS1100 Drag Star (V-Star 1100) - Yamaha Midnight Star 950 (V-Star 950), which received similarities with the regular version XVS1300.

  • Yamaha XVS1300A (in the USA - V-Star 1300) - the usual classic version of the motorcycle.
  • Yamaha XVS1300CT Tourer (in the USA - ' V-Star 1300 Tourer ') - touring version of the motorcycle. It features an adjustable windshield, leather side bags, a backrest for the passenger.
  • Yamaha XVS1300BG (in the US - V-Star 1300 Deluxe) - touring version of the motorcycle with batwing, plastic saddlebags, audio system and navigation. It appeared in 2013.
