Standard Features

 942 cc, air-cooled, SOHC, 4-valves per cylinder, 60° V-twin produces outstanding low- and mid-range torque - maximum torque is reached at only 3,500 rpm - for exceptional cruising performance and comfort.  
 One-piece cylinder heads feature 4 valves per cylinder to provide optimum volumetric or filling efficiency for maximum power output. More fuel / air mixture entering the combustion chamber means increased power output. Two smaller intake valves allow more air flow than a single larger valve. Two smaller valves (lighter) also allow for higher rpms.  
 Pent roof type combustion chamber design with optimized squish area forces the fuel / air mixture toward the centre of the combustion chamber (and the centrally located long reach spark plug) for faster, more complete combustion and in turn improved power and reduced emissions.  
 Cylinder heads feature polished fins for a quality appearance, while the cylinder head covers are chromed.  
 The SOHC valve train features 31.5 mm intake and 28 mm exhaust valves with single valve springs which reduce friction and power losses. Specially designed "Y" shaped roller rocker arms activate the valves. The roller rocker system features a needle bearing rotating against the camshaft allowing the lift of 2 valves at the same time without producing excessive camshaft wear and friction.  
 Auto adjusting cam chain tensioners are used to reduce mechanical engine noise and maintenance  
 Lightweight liner-less aluminum cylinders feature ceramic composite plating for superior heat dissipation for better cooling, less friction and reduced weight.  
 Single pin style crankshaft is used to enhance engine character and exhaust note.  
 Flat top, forged, lightweight aluminum pistons provide excellent durability while reducing reciprocating mass for fast throttle response.  
 Wet sump oil delivery system features an easy access spin-on type oil filter. Traditional dipstick is used to check oil level.  
 Classic side mounted, large capacity, 3 liter air box houses an easy access, high-flow viscous paper-type filter. Its design highlights and compliments the V-twin engine appearance. The outer cover is chromed.  
 Dual bore, 35 mm throttle body fuel injection system with TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) and ISC (Idle Speed Control). This is a closed loop system that utilizes a heated oxygen sensor. The oxygen sensor feeds back info to the ECU which in turn adjusts the fuel/air mixture for maximum power with minimum emissions. The oxygen sensor is located before the mufflers, so the use of a slip-on muffler will not affect this system.  
 4-hole, 2-directional spray, Denso injectors are used for excellent fuel atomization and more complete combustion chamber filling. There is one injector per cylinder.  
 Fuel injection benefits include improved fuel economy, choke-less starting, reduced emissions, and smoother drivability. The XVS950 has been tuned to provide a very linear throttle response for easy riding.  
 Powerful 32 bit ECU controls the ignition mapping and fuel injection process.  
 Maintenance-free Transistor Controlled Ignition (TCI) provides a hot spark for fast starts and strong engine performance.  
 Stylish 2 into 1 exhaust system features a 3-way honeycomb-type catalyzer at the entry point to the muffler. The catalyzer reduces harmful exhaust emissions, while the dual stage type muffler produces a low, throaty V-twin exhaust note.  
 One-way clutch-type electric starter decreases mechanical noise during starting.  
 Multi-plate outer pull type wet clutch is used. Lever pull is light and easy.  
 5-speed transmission features optimized gear ratios for excellent city and highway rideability. Transmission gears use straight cut dogs for smooth, positive shifting. 5th gear delivers outstanding cruising performance and reduced rpms at highway speed  
 One piece classic heel-and-toe shifter adds versatility and enhances the overall cruising experience.  
 Clean, quiet belt drive system is extremely low maintenance and simplifies customization. The belt features Aramid cords for excellent strength and reduced stretching.  
 Air Induction System (AIS) reduces harmful CO and HC exhaust emissions.  
 Numerous chromed engine parts reinforce this motorcycle's quality image.  
Chassis / Suspension
 Double cradle steel frame offers roomy ergonomics, great handling and a low seat height. This frame utilizes a 4-point rigid engine mounting system making the engine a stressed member to optimize the overall rigidity balance for superior handling. Rake is 32 degrees. The engine is mounted low in the chassis to provide a low center of gravity for a light, easy handling feel.  
 Box section steel swingarm compliments the frame.  
 The V-Star 950 features one of the lowest seat heights in its class (675 mm / 26.6 in.), making it very easy for most riders to place both feet flat on the ground, an important benefit for novice or shorter riders.  
 The long (1,685 mm / 66 in.) wheelbase provides very stable and predictable handling at all speeds. Both of these benefits will help instill confidence in novice riders.  
 New style classic body design is based on a single streamline running along the entire body surface. This stylish design highlights a low, lean, and sportier image than conventional retro-style cruisers. The long, low design means spacious ergonomics with lots of leg room, which maximizes both rider and passenger comfort.  
 Beefy 41 mm front fork features stylish large-diameter brushed-finished fork covers. Wheel travel is 135 mm (5.3 in.) for a smooth, comfortable ride.  
 Single-shock, bottom link rear suspension centralizes mass for light, agile handling. The linkage system provides a rising rate or progressive effect that provides excellent compliance on small bumps then increases in firmness for large bumps.  
 Spring preload adjustable rear shock is vertically mounted behind the engine and is tucked out of sight for that clean, classic hardtail look. Rear wheel travel is 110 mm (4.3 in.). The 9 positions of spring preload adjustment allow the rider to tailor spring preload to suit rider weight, load and road conditions.  
 Single, large 320 mm front disc brake features a twin piston caliper for strong, confidence-inspiring stopping power.  
 298 mm rear disc brake is squeezed by single piston caliper mounted to the underside of the swingarm. This design not only helps to hide the caliper but also lowers the center of gravity for light handling.  
 Pull back 1 in. diameter handlebars are easy to reach and enhance the riding position for excellent rider comfort. Chromed bar end weights reduce vibration.  
 17 liter teardrop shaped fuel tank compliments the long, low new style classic body line. The reserve portion of the tank is 3.7 liters.  
 Separate rider and passenger seats offers excellent comfort and support for all day riding fun. Rider seat height is only 675 mm or 26.6 in. off the ground. The front portion of the rider seat is narrow to make it even easier to touch the ground. The passenger portion of the seat can easily be removed if desired.  
 Leather covered hard shell saddlebags feature a stylish tapered design and are lockable for extra security.  
 Passenger backrest with embossed Star logo provides that extra peace of mind for a passenger.  
 Medium height windshield features chrome accents and a central Star logo that enhances the unit's overall styling. This windshield offers excellent wind and weather protection and can be easily removed with only 4 bolts.  
 Front and rear fenders are made of steel for easy customization and demonstrate the quality of build.  
 Full-size, floating-type rider floorboards are roomy and comfortably positioned while also helping reduce vibration. There is a replaceable scraper on the lower edge of the footboard.  
 Lightweight 8-spoke cast aluminum wheels are fitted wide tubeless tires. These stylish wheels feature a split spoke design. The rear drive pulley matches the wheel. Front wheel is 3.50 in. wide fitted with a 130/70-18 bias tire, while the rear is 4.5 in. wide fitted with a 170/70-16 bias tire.  
 Fuel tank mounted instrument features an analog speedometer, digital odometer, dual tripmeters, low fuel tripmeter, clock and low fuel warning light. The instrument illumination can be adjusted to suit the rider's preference via the RHS switch gear.  
 Handlebar switch gear allows the operator to change instrument functions via buttons on the RHS handlebar switch gear, thereby eliminating the need to take your hands off the bars to tab through the main instrument functions.  
 60/55-watt high intensity halogen headlight emphasizes the new style classic body styling. The headlight is adjustable up and down plus left and right.  
 Industry-leading Star family fit and finish features rich, lustrous paint and extensive chrome accents creating a machine as stunning as it is powerful.
