The learner approved V-Star 650s have topped the cruiser sales charts for a number of years with good reasons.
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.
