2010 Star Updates

Think all baggers are created equal? Think again

**2010 Stratoliner Deluxe **
Star is introducing a new bagger, the 2010 Stratoliner Deluxe. Powered by Star's 113 cubic-inch (1854cc) air-cooled, pushrod V-twin, it's certainly no slouch in the power department. Featuring a full front fairing and large color-matched locking hard sidebags you'll be set for the long haul. Making the trip even more pleasant is an audio system with high fidelity speakers, handlebar mounted controls and an iPod jack.

The long and low aluminum frame provides great looks and light handling unlike any other full-size cruiser with very few welds for a smooth, clean look and a near 50/50 weight distribution between both wheels. Thick 46mm fork tubes with slant cut chrome covers, a tucked out-of-sight single shock with adjustable spring preload, a chromed 1.25 inch oversize handlebar and large front discs with monoblock brake calipers add to the unmatched functionality of the chassis. A strong and light belt final drive routes power smoothly to the rear wheel while the floating floorboards and adjustable heel/toe shifter provide a comfortable, low effort ride.

Features include the switchgear wiring being routed internally to the handlebar, a flangeless teardrop fuel tank, 12-spoke wheels, chrome front brake master cylinder with integrated lever, and a sculpted seat. The cooling fin edges have special custom machining which give a jewel like appearance to the engine as light hits it from different angles. Additional details like high quality paint and chrome, bright multireflector headlight, LED taillight and amber turn signals behind clear lenses complete the custom look. As usual with Star, there is a complete line of accessories available.

The 2010 Stratoliner Deluxe will be available in Star motorcycle dealerships nationwide beginning in January in a Raven finish with a starting MSRP of $17,490.

Improved V Star 1300 Tourer
For 2010, Star updates the 1300 Tourer improving functionality and comfort. The tour package comes standard with hard leather-wrapped sidebags, passenger backrest and windshield.

Changes include a new handlebar bringing the bars closer to the rider for a more relaxed riding position and wider range of movement. In addition the shape of the seat has been redesigned with more of a "dish" shape for improved comfort allowing riders to touch the ground easily, reducing the seat height to just 27.2 inches off the ground.

The 80-cubic-inch (1304cc) liquid-cooled, fuel-injected V-twin produces excellent power across the board and comes equipped with a virtually maintenance free belt drive.

Of course the 1300 comes with great features like a steel gas tank and fenders, seven spoke wheels and matching drive pulley, top quality paint, a bright multi-reflector headlight and amber turn signals with clear lenses that give a custom look.
