Star is classing the 950 as a "Sport Classic," a motorcycle with the typical cruiser styling cues combined with a more sporting 18" front wheel with low profile tire and a narrow side-to-side bike profile. Built around a steel double-cradle-style frame, the bike uses the engine as a stressed member of the chassis. In this case, that engine is a 942cc, air-cooled, single-crank, 60-degree V-twin. Sounds pretty mundane, huh? However, Star has upped the tech level by using four-valve cylinder heads, 9.0:1 compression ratio, and ceramic-composite coated cylinders. More? How about lightweight forged aluminum pistons and low-friction roller-type rocker arms riding on needle bearings? Five speeds and belt drive? Still more? Fine-the 950 also comes with fuel injection that sprays right at the intake valves. As you can see in the photos, the exhaust is a two-into-one design and contains a three-way catalyzer for reduced emissions. Assuming that the engineers get the fuel injection maps right, it should be a fast spinning mill with good power at all engine speeds. Star claims an estimated 47 mpg for the 950.
