The V Star 950 Tourer rolls out with a windshield, leather-wrapped hard sidebags, and a passenger backrest all standard, ready for the open road or the commute to school or work.
V Star 950 is the benchmark in the middleweight cruiser class, appealing to seasoned riders as well as those looking for a friendly entry-level cruiser. The air-cooled V-twin delivers plenty of distinctive, big-cruiser character and pulsing torque feel. Seat height is an extra- low 26.5 inches. The full-sized chassis has a long, low look and provides spacious comfort. Handling is sporty and responsive, great for curvy back roads and commuting around town as well as open- highway cruising. No wonder V-Twin® Magazine named V Star 950 the 2009 “Metric of the Year”!
The 942cc 60° V-twin engine is both simple and sophisticated. Sure, there’s no-fuss air cooling for traditional looks. But inside you’ll find the reason for the surprisingly spirited performance: four-valve cylinder heads, ceramic-composite-lined cylinders, forged aluminum pistons, and fuel injection. The meticulously tuned 2-into-1 exhaust system has a throaty exhaust note, and also 3-way catalyst technology to reduce air pollution.
The carefully designed chassis contributes to an exceptionally light feeling riders are sure to appreciate. The double-cradle steel main frame offers an ideal rigidity balance in the longitudinal, lateral, and torsional directions, using the engine as a stressed member. With the engine mounting position slightly forward for optimum front-rear weight distribution and its large, 18-inch front wheel, V Star 950 has outstanding handling performance.Features & Benefits
The 57.5-cubic inch (942cc) engine is an air-cooled SOHC 60° Vtwin. With four valves per cylinder, a pent-roof shaped combustionchamber, and 9.0:1 compression ratio, this engine has beencarefully designed to produce excellent power characteristics and best-in-class acceleration.
To keep friction loss to a minimum and help the engineachieve the ideal performance characteristics, special compactroller-type rocker arms with needle bearings are used. Thesealso reduce top-end weight for excellent mass centralization.
The combustion chamber shape was precisely engineered todirect the fuel air charge into the center of the piston for fastercombustion and maximum power. Ceramic-composite-platedcylinders provide excellent heat dissipation and reducedoil consumption.
High-quality forged aluminum pistons have a lightweight, highstrengthcompact design that contributes to reduce vibration.
The steel double-cradle frame is long and low, contributing to the bike’s spacious 95.9-inch (2435mm) overall length and 66.3-inch wheelbase. That means a great ride to go along with
