Best Starter Bike Period
By Tom(Owner), Jun. 8, 2012

not happy
By lori(Owner), Aug. 22, 2012
I would like to let buyers beware, the oil change is not cheap or simple . this particular motorcycle requires valve adjustments with every oil change which is very costly 279.00$ up to 300.00$ depending on your dealer. If I knew this before hand I would not have purchased a V star. Read Full Review
