Key Features:
  • This midsize Star brings modern classic styling along for a lighter, sportier, hot-rod-inspired ride.
  • 80-cubic-inch (1304cc) liquid-cooled, fuel-injected V-twin produces excellent power across the board along with a highly stimulating exhaust note.
  • Modern-classic design, including a two-into-one exhaust, gives the V Star 1300 that distinctive Star® look.
  • Steel chassis gets 48 percent of the bike’s weight on the front tire, for quick, light handling and maneuverability.
  • Authentic cruiser features such as belt drive and steel fenders open up the customization possibilities even further.
  • Estimated 42 mpg* means over 200 miles of riding between fill-ups.
  • The Star Accessories Catalog is packed full of high-quality parts that invite Star owners to fully express their individuality.
Engine:
  • 80-cubic-inch (1304cc) liquid-cooled, single overhead cam 60-degree V-twin with dual counterbalancers offers plenty of smooth performance.
  • Computer-controlled twin-barrel fuel injection provides optimal mixture whatever the temperature or altitude.
  • Four valves per cylinder (36mm intake, 32mm exhaust) provide optimum combustion efficiency; roller rocker arms reduce friction for better performance and reduced wear.
  • Ceramic composite cylinder sleeves contain 100mm forged pistons for excellent durability and longevity.
  • 9.5:1 compression ratio and aggressive cam timing produce plenty of power across the board and a distinctive exhaust note.
  • Forged connecting rods ride a single crankpin for true V-twin sound and power.
  • Smooth-shifting five-speed transmission feeds power to an efficient, low-maintenance belt drive.
  • Sly cooling system routes liquid through hidden hoses and internal engine passages for air-cooled looks and liquid-cooled performance. Oil filter is easy to get to but also tucked nearly out of sight for clean looks.
  • Hydraulic cam chain tensioner reduces noise and maintenance.
Chassis/Suspension:
  • Steel cradle frame has four solid engine mounts—including one atop the front cylinder head—for maximum rigidity and excellent handling.
  • Stylish, braced steel swingarm and rear wheel are controlled by a single linkage-mounted shock absorber, adjustable for spring preload.
  • 41mm fork tubes with stainless covers look great and serve up a smooth, controlled ride.
  • The shape of the seat has been designed with a “dish” shape for great comfort, and it allows riders to touch the ground easily.
  • Fuel tank carries 4.9 gallons of fuel. Mounting the fuel pump in a separate, tucked-away sub-tank allows the thin tank design.
  • Seven-spoke cast wheels and matching rear pulley mount fat, 16-inch tires for a cool period look albeit with big contact patches on the road.
  • A pair of 298mm front brake discs provide excellent power and feel.
  • Strong, light and low maintenance belt final drive routes power smoothly and efficiently to the rear wheel.
Additional Features:
  • Star quality paint, chrome and detailing vie for attention wherever you look; fenders are steel not plastic.
  • A 3D tank emblem design adorns the V Star 1300 and evokes a modern-classic look.
  • The V Star 1300 gets lot of chrome with a chrome headlight housing and chrome belt guard. Plus, there’s a gloss black finish on the frame that adds a high-quality look.
  • Retro-modern bar-mounted instrumentation contains analog speedometer along with LCD display; indicator lights for high beam, turn signal, low oil level, low fuel, coolant temperature, neutral—and engine diagnostic function.
  • Rider floorboards for comfort and room; heel/toe shifter makes moving through the five-speed gearbox a snap.
  • Bright multireflector headlight, LED taillight and amber turn signals behind clear lenses give a custom look.
  • 02 sensor and catalyst reduce emissions.
