Features

Top Features:

  • Form and Function
    The Raider® was inspired by the custom chopper movement, but since it’s a Star, it had to also handle, stop and go.
  • Kicked-out Front Fork
    A 6-degree yoke angle—the first ever on a Star® motorcycle—makes it possible to achieve that custom raked-out look as well as neutral handling and straight-line cruisability combining a 33-degree rake plus 6 degrees yoke angle gives the Raider a total rake of 39 degrees and 102mm of trail.
  • Stylish Custom Wheels
    Custom 5-spoke aluminum wheels carry a 120/70 profile, 21-inch tire up front, and a wide, 210/40-18 radial out back—the tallest and widest ever on a Star.
  • Real Steel Fenders
    No cheap plastic fenders here—this authentic cruiser has real steel fenders customizers love. Classic belt drive, too.
  • Ready to Customize
    Get started on your own customization. The Star® Accessories Catalog is packed full of high-quality parts that invite Star owners to fully express their individuality.
  • Ready to Travel
    Estimated 42 mpg* means this cruiser can go the distance between fill-ups.

Engine:

  • Huge Low-rpm Torque
    113-cubic-inch (1854cc) air-cooled, OHV with 4 valves per cylinder, pushrod 48° V-twin pumps out max torque at just 2500 rpm and max power at 4500 rpm for powerful, relaxed cruising.
  • Stylish Engine
    Four pushrod-activated valves and two spark plugs per cylinder provide optimum combustion efficiency along with classically beautiful engine architecture. Special custom machining of the cooling fin edges gives a jewel-like appearance to the engine as light hits it from different angles.
  • High-tech Internals
    Ceramic-composite plated cylinders for superior heat dissipation with forged pistons cooled by oil jets. Provides outstanding reliability and longer engine life.
  • Tuned to Perform
    9.5:1 compression ratio and aggressive cam timing increase power output across the board.
  • Advanced Fuel Injection
    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.
  • Stealthy Airbox
    A 3.5-liter airbox is hidden in the area below the fuel tank for great performance and clean styling.
  • Throaty Exhaust
    Two-into-one-into-two exhaust with Exhaust Ultimate Power valve (EXUP®) inside boosts torque in the 2500-3500-rpm range.

Chassis/Suspension:

  • Aluminum Frame
    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.
  • Secure Riding Position
    Low, sculpted seat holds the rider in place, and pullback bars reach back to enforce a casual, urban cruising style.
  • Kicked-out Front Fork
    A 6-degree yoke angle—the first ever on a Star® motorcycle—makes it possible to achieve that custom raked-out look as well as neutral handling and straight-line cruisability combining a 33-degree rake plus 6 degrees yoke angle gives the Raider a total rake of 39 degrees and 102mm of trail.
  • Stylish Custom Tires
    Custom 5-spoke aluminum wheels carry a 120/70 profile, 21-inch tire up front, and a wide, 210/40-18 radial out back—the tallest and widest ever on a Star.
  • Plush Suspension
    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.
  • Generous Fuel Range
    Flangeless fuel tank carries a full 4.2 gallons of fuel.
  • Potent Brakes
    Front brake master cylinder with integrated lever operates a pair of 298mm front discs squeezed by strong 4-piston monoblock calipers, with the rear 310mm disc gripped by a floating single-piston caliper, for excellent power and feel.
  • Clean Belt Drive
    Strong, light and narrow belt final drive contains embedded carbon fiber for even greater strength.
  • Hidden Wiring
    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:

  • Peerless Quality
    Jewel-like fit and finish, and Star® quality paint, chrome and attention to detail are evident all over the Raider.
  • Tank-mounted Instruments
    Cool, tank-mounted instrumentation complements the custom look, and contains analog speedometer and fuel gauge, along with twin digital trip meters, odometer, clock, adjustable brightness and self-diagnostics.
  • Excellent Lighting
    Bright multi-reflector headlight, LED taillight, and custom amber LED turn signals behind clear lenses give a custom look. A right-thumb activated accessory driving light switch is ready for accessory lighting, too.
  • Clean Running
    02 sensor and three-way catalyst reduce emissions.
