Yamaha's profilation of this bike
The V Star Custom is the lightest of the full-size Stars, which means great handling and performance are along for the ride, too. Dual exhausts, steel fenders, custom-looking clear turn signals, lots of chrome—the V Star Custom represents tremendous cruiser bang for the buck.
