  • 2007 Yamaha V Star 1300 Tourer

    Dec 2, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fuel injected and liquid cooled. Belt driven.
    Cons: No tachometer or fuel gauge.

    Summary: On 11/20/2006, I traded my 2005 V Star 650 Classic in for Yamaha's brand new 2007 Yamaha V Star 1300 Tourer. This is the bike's first year in production. I chose Raven for the color. Normally I would wait a year or two before buying the 1st year ... read more

    Pros: MPG - 50
    Style
    Balance
    Cons: Maintenance if you have it done, it is high, a bit.  Be prepared.

    Summary: 6000 miles in 5 months. I am primarily a commuter, so I have my fair balance of stop and go, mid-speed (35~55) and interstate travelling. I am not out to win the Iron Butt - I also have no axe to grind. Here is what I think. I think I like the style. ... read more

    Pros: Ergonomics, power, and balance. Fuel injection and belt drive. Versatile big cruiser for great price.
    Cons: No gas gauge or tach. Slight engine surge at low speed.

    Summary: My new 2007 VS 1300 (non Tourer) is a great bike; and as my Harley riding neighbor put it, it's like getting a Fat Boy at less than half the price! I only have 375 miles on it now, but already I'm pleased in nearly all respects. I've added the following ... read more

    Pros: easy take off, cornering, stopping - once rolling the bike floats !!!

    Pros: Good looks, nice handling, nice price, good specs. Medium length rides are fun.
    Cons: Unresolved problem (see review), tricky throttle control. I'm short and need custom handle bars.

    Summary: I would love my new v star 1300 except that it has a bug in the motor or transmission which causes it to vibrate or rub at low speed. Factory, according to dealer "Snake River Yamaha of Boise" says they are aware of the problem but I should go ahead and ... read more

    Pros: Rides good and looks good. sets good. lite enough for me.
    Cons: Irritating; engine misfire, windshield turbulence, transmission noise, customer service. Overall an irritating experience.

    Summary:    Irritating is the best word to describe this experience without resorting to curse words. For the price this is a nice/irritating motorcycle but If I had it to do over I would not buy it and definitely not buy the ... read more

    Pros: comfortable ride; low seat height; gearing just right; easy handling; beautiful styling.
    Cons: A couple inches more pullback in the handlebars would be just right.

    Summary: Just bought this 2 days ago, it's the first bike I've ridden in 8 yrs. Although I don't highly recommend going with such a large bike the first time around, it's pretty easy to get used to. With some practice it should be fairly easy to avoid the ... read more
