The learner approved V-Star 650s have topped the cruiser sales charts for a number of years with good reason.
We know you don't have to be a heavyweight to express yourself. The way we see it, this Classic has all the Star quality and strong-running V-twin performance you want.
A low seat height means just about anyone can ride one – and more crucially, the 650s have the fit, finish, reliability and performance that all our Stars are known for.
An ideal starting point to the world of V-twin, the 650 V-Stars punch well above their weight. Meaning you get all the benefits of sweet handling and light weight while you appear to be riding a full bore badass V-twin.
Mounted atop the beautiful teardrop tank, this chromed speedometer designed with a large face for easy reading or tripmeter/odometer displays, as well as turn signal, neutral, high beam, and engine diagnostic indicator lights.
Single front disc and rear drum brakes deliver strong, confidence-inspiring stopping power.
Forty cubic inches
Beautifully chromed and polished 649cc air-cooled, SOHC 70 degree V-twin cranks out torquey low and mid range power with minimal engine rpm - maximum torque is reached at only 3000 rpm - for powerful, smooth cruising performance.
Low maintenance shaft drive provides quiet, hassle-free performance. Right-side two-into-two chrome exhaust pipes contribute to the sleek styling and sweet aura persona of the V-Star 650.
Classic, deeply valanced steel front and rear fenders complement the striking chrome fork covers, thickly padded seat cushion and polished headlight surround for a look that's pure class.
