Yamaha V Star 950 Motorcycle: The V Star 950 features the longest wheelbase in its class for that stretched look and incredible straight-line cruisability, along with an ultra-low seat height of just 26.5 inches. A fuel injected, air-cooled V-twin working eight valves via roller rockers provides plenty of thumping torque and power for real open road cruising. A fat tire out back and a final belt drive get the power to the ground and look good doing it.
