  • Great value and reliability
    By  (I am an Owner) on Nov 24, 2020

    When I started riding in the 70's. A 650 was a big bike. Everyone started on a 100-250. I still don't consider a 650 as a starter bike. After a 30 year lay off. I decided to start writing again. I was a little leery of a 650 being too much, but did have experience so I went with this V-Star. I'm ...

  • My First Bike
    By  (I am an Owner) on Oct 18, 2013

    This is my first bike I owned. When I first got on it I knew it was the one. Very comfortable! Perfect bike to learn on. I was told it was to big of a bike to learn on but its perfect! Love the chrome and black. I have had many compliments on this bike. Its one I will ride for years to come.

  • Yamaha V Star Classic
    By  (I am an Owner) on Mar 10, 2012

    I purchased my bike used five years ago for a great value. This was my first motorcycle, and for just starting out the 650 was more than enough. However as I have gained more experience I can help looking over the fence at bigger engines. But to be honest my bike is more than capable at getting me ...

  • Don't sell the 650 short
    By  (I am an Owner) on Jun 07, 2010

    I purchased a 650 classic last year with my tax returns. I bought it used and had the intentions of this being a "temporary" fix untill I could afford an 1100 or 1600. I've owned other bikes before this one and I have to say this is by far my favorite bike I've ever owned. I bought it for 4k and ...

  • Classic, Solid Performer
    By  (I am an Owner) on Sep 16, 2008

    Dependable, solid & proven cruiser, the V Star Classic has enough power for tall hills, tough headwinds and two-up riding all day. Performance is a close second to the top rated comfort and handling, which makes it a great choice for long distance cruising. This is one machine you can put extended ...
