Introduced in 2007, Star— now folded back under the Yamaha umbrella — has been offering essentially the same bike spec-wise since 2012, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The V Star 1300 Tourer is a mid-size touring bike— not a full dresser — but with plenty of storage. It’s not a small bike, but the V Star 1300 Tourer is small enough that you don’t have to wrestle with it. A low seat height and low center of gravity makes it easy to handle, and the 80-cubic-inch engine is big enough to be respectable but not so big it intimidates.

Design

Two details I especially like on the V Star Tourer are the extra wide clutch and brake levers that give you a sure-grip feel, and the remote adjustment feature on the headlight. I just hate having to monkey with a wrench trying to aim the headlight so remote adjustment is a small, but welcome, feature.
