Key Features:
  • The limited production Raider SCL is loaded with premium cruiser features. Crafted for riders who value exclusivity, only 500 of these exceptional machines will be built.
  • The 2013 Raider SCL features newly developed, rich Crimson Red paint accented with an Intense Black color. The bike is hand-painted by skilled craftsmen to deliver premium quality the discerning rider is looking for. The 2013 Raider SCL simply stands out from the crowd.
  • Stainless steel mesh throttle cables as well as clutch and brake lines give this bike a premium look.
  • Custom 5-spoke chrome wheels co-developed by Star and Performance Machine, with matching chrome pulley and chrome belt guard, help elevate the Raider SCL to a true production custom.
  • Great attention to detail was taken into consideration when designing the genuine leather two-tone seat with embroidered SCL logo, and matching beige stitching – keeping the discerning cruiser customer in mind. Over time, the seat will develop a character of its own and will be unlike any other. The top panels of the seat have crocodile-pattern embossing on the leather for 2013.
  • An exclusive metal SCL badge with hologram is placed on top of the fuel tank as a constant reminder to its owner that only 500 of these unique machines exist.
New for 2013:
  • Clutch has light, easy-pull operation — 20% less effort at the lever than before.
Engine:
  • 113-cubic-inch (1854cc) air-cooled, OHV with 4 valves per cylinder, pushrod 48-degree V-twin pumps out max torque at just 2500 rpm and max power at 4500 rpm for powerful, relaxed cruising.
  • Four pushrod-activated valves and two spark plugs per cylinder provide optimum combustion efficiency along with classically beautiful engine architecture.
  • Ceramic-composite plated cylinders for superior heat dissipation with forged pistons cooled by oil jets. Provides outstanding reliability and longer engine life.
  • 9.5:1 compression ratio and aggressive cam timing increase power output across the board.
  • Computer-controlled, twin-bore fuel injection monitors multiple engine parameters to calculate perfect mixture under all conditions; wide-angle 12-hole fuel injectors provide excellent atomization.
  • A 3.5-liter airbox is hidden in the area below the fuel tank for great performance and clean styling.
  • Two-into-one-into-two exhaust with Exhaust Ultimate Power valve (EXUP®) inside boosts torque in the 2500~3500-rpm range.
  • Special custom-machining of the cooling fin edges gives a jewel-like appearance to the engine as light hits it from different angles.
Chassis/Suspension:
  • All-aluminum cast frame is light, rigid, and tuned for light, athletic handling. A light, Controlled-Fill, aluminum swingarm casting complements the bike’s lithe style.
  • Low, sculpted rider and passenger seat of exclusive, two-toned genuine leather with orange stitching set this bike apart while maintaining the Raider SCL's casual, urban cruising style ergonomics.
  • A 6-degree yoke angle—the first ever on a street-legal Star Motorcycle—makes it possible to achieve that custom look as well as neutral handling and straight-line cruisability: 33-degree rake plus 6 degrees yoke angle gives total rake of 39 degrees and 102mm of trail.
  • Custom 5-spoke wheels co-developed by Star and Performance Machine are chrome plated for uncommon custom beauty. There’s 120/70-21-inch tire up front, and a wide, 210/40-18 out back—the tallest and widest ever on a Star.
  • 46mm fork tubes serve a sweet appearance and an excellent ride through 5.1 inches of wheel travel.
  • A tucked-out-of-sight single shock out back provides a smooth ride under varying loads.
  • The flangeless fuel tank gets two-tone Crimson Red/Intense Black paint for a rich, high quality look. It carries a full 4.2 gallons of fuel for an excellent cruising range.
  • Front brake master cylinder with integrated lever operates a pair of 298mm front discs squeezed by strong monoblock calipers for excellent power and feel, with a 310mm disc out back.
  • Strong, light and narrow belt final drive contains embedded carbon fiber for even greater strength.
  • Wiring harness uses super-slim wires for compactness and lighter weight, and switchgear wiring is routed inside the handlebar for a clean appearance.
Additional Features:
  • Left-thumb operated high-beam switch, and right-thumb activated accessory driving light switch for great visibility.
  • Jewel-like fit and finish, and Star quality paint, chrome and attention to detail are evident all over the Raider SCL.
  • Cool, tank-mounted instrumentation complements the custom look, and contains analog speedometer and fuel gauge, along with twin digital tripmeters, odometer and self-diagnostics.
  • Bright multireflector headlight, LED taillight, and amber turn signals behind clear lenses give a custom look.
  • 02 sensor and three-way catalyst reduce emissions.
