2011 V Star 1300 Features

  • Engine Features - The New 2011 V Star 1300 80-cubic-inch (1304cc) liquid-cooled, single overhead cam 60-degree V-twin with dual counterbalancers offers plenty of smooth performance. Computer-controlled twin-barrel fuel injection provides optimal mixture whatever the temperature or altitude. Four valves per cylinder (36mm intake, 32mm exhaust) provide optimum combustion efficiency, roller rocker arms reduce friction for better performance and reduced wear. Ceramic composite cylinder sleeves contain 100mm forged pistons for excellent durability and longevity. 9.5 : 1 compression ratio and aggressive cam timing produce plenty of power across the board and a distinctive exhaust note. Forged connecting rods ride a single crankpin for true V-twin sound and power. Smooth-shifting five-speed transmission feeds power to an efficient, low-maintenance belt drive. Sly cooling system routes liquid through hidden hoses and internal engine passages for air-cooled looks and liquid-cooled performance. Oil filter is easy to get to but also tucked nearly out of sight for clean, pure looks. Hydraulic cam chain tensioner reduces noise and maintenance.

  • Chassis Features - The New 2011 V Star 1300 steel cradle frame has four solid engine mounts, including one atop the front cylinder head for maximum rigidity and excellent handling. Stylish, braced steel swingarm and rear wheel are controlled by a single linkage-mounted shock absorber, adjustable for spring preload. 41mm fork tubes with stainless covers look great and serve up a smooth, controlled ride. Flangeless fuel tank carries 4.9 gallons of fuel. Mounting the fuel pump in a separate, tucked-away sub-tank allows the thin tank design. Seven-spoke cast wheels and matching rear pulley mount fat, 16-inch tires for a cool period look albeit with big contact patches on the road. A pair of 298mm front brake discs provide excellent power and feel. Strong, light and low maintenance belt final drive routes power smoothly and efficiently to the rear wheel. The handlebar bend is changed, bringing the bars closer to the rider for a more relaxed riding position. The shape of the seat has been redesigned with a 'dish' shape for improved comfort, and it allows riders to touch the ground easily. A new 3D tank emblem design adorns the V Star 1300 and evokes a modern-classic look. The V Star 1300 2011 gets even more chrome: a new chrome headlight housing and chrome belt guard. Plus, there’s a new gloss black finish on the frame that adds a high-quality look.
