    Pros: Great value, easy to maintain, very pleasing to the eye
    Cons: Stock exhaust leaves much to be desired

    Summary: The Yamaha V-Star 1100 (now Star 1100) is a masterpiece of engineering and aesthetics. Of all of the motorcycles that I have ridden, this is by far my favorite. First is the 1096cc (65CI) air-cooled motor. This motor, with its 75 degree V-Twin cranks ... read more
