Deciding on one of the many mid-sized V-twin motorcycles available can mean the difference between a comfortable road trip across the state and pulling over early wondering why you ever attempted such a feat. The 2007 Yamaha V-Star 650 Classic is an American inspired hog designed from a world renowned Japanese motorcycle manufacturer. "Top Speed" said this about the 07 V-Star 650 Classic, "the long, low styling, the authentic 40 cubic-inch V-twin, the painstaking attention to detail--will just plain knock you out."

Function

  • Designed for long journeys on the open road, this mid-sized motorcycle shines with chrome and retro attitude oozing off its long frame. Upon original release the 2007 Yamaha V-Star 650 Classic MSRP was $6,099, substantially lower than American born cruisers from the likes of Harley Davidson.

Identification

  • Lots of chrome, long pipes producing large V-twin sound, clear turn signals, rider floorboards and steel fenders create a unique look traditional to mid-sized motorcycles Customizable options allow owners to further personalize this two-wheeled ride.

Specifications

  • Powered by a 649cc, carbureted, 4-stroke, V-twin, the 2007 V Star 650 Classic offers an electric starter to get riders moving through the 5-gears easily. Yamaha focused on creating a comfortable mid-size classic when they created this 505 lbs. motorcycle. Helping the rider stay relaxed on the V-Star 650 Classic starts with the rear shock, able to travel 3.9 inches hidden behind a twin sided swing arm and telescopic front fork with 5.5 inches of travel.

Features

  • Each one of the 5-gears built into the wide-ratio transmission is designed for smooth power response so jerky throttle acceleration does not ruin a Sunday morning ride. "Top Speed" said this about the 649cc V-twin chrome finished motor, "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." Chrome accents, useable power, relaxed suspension and a relatively affordable price showcase the classic American look of a Japanese built mid-sized hog.

Considerations

  • Those looking for the 'Easy Rider' experience have a lot to choose from with both American and international produced mid-sized motorcycles. The 2007 Yamaha V-Star 650 Classic has a vintage appeal with a contemporary V-twin motor making it a potential choice for those in this market.
