2009 V Star 950 First Ride – Motorcycle USA

2009 V Star 950 First Ride Yamaha’s Star Motorcycles delivers the 2009 V-Star 950 as an entry-level ride for the cruiser market. The idea is simple: make it look big and stylish, but handle light and nimble, while still feeling large. Okay, maybe not so simple. Sounds almost contradictory, right? Not when you are in the business of making an entry-level cruiser. You see, everyone wants that big-bike feel, but not everyone wants a 700-pound pig that handles like a John Deere – especially less experienced riders. And while this may sound easy enough to achieve, it’s not. It is, however, extremely important. This is why Star has spent a great deal of time and money developing ...

Big-cruiser feel of the nicely priced mid-displacement variety The 60-degree V-Twin engine powering the V Star 950 employs EFI, a 4-valve-per-cylinder, SOHC valvetrain with roller rocker arms and ceramic-composite plated cylinders, dissipating its heat into the passing breeze instead of a surrounding water jacket. The Mikuni fuel injection system draws air from a three-liter airbox and fuel from a 4.5-gallon gas tank to feed their mixture to the two cylinders via dual side-draft throttle bodies. Once inside the 85mm x 83mm cylinders, two forged-aluminum pistons compress the mixture against pentroof combustion chambers at a 9.0:1 compression ratio. Spent gases flow into a 2-into-1 exhaust system ...

What Does the Rest of the Pack Have That the Yamaha V Star 950 Tourer Not Have? Touring cruisers have come a long way since the 1980’s. Where once tourers were confined to either specialty bikes or sportbike-esque riders, touring motorcyclists today have a plethora of options from which to choose. With the proliferation of ultra-big motorcycles has also sprung forth the resurgence of the mid-size cruiser, identical in many ways to their larger, more unwieldy brethren, mid-size touring cruisers such as the Yamaha V Star 950 tourer tout better handling, lighter weight, and more affordable price tags. When you ask what does the Yamaha V Star 950 not have that bigger bikes do have, the answer ...

2009 Yamaha V-Star 950 Test Drive: V-Twin Bike is a Fun Middleweight Cruiser October 1, 2009 12:00 AM Clayton, Ga. Yamaha’s Star Motorcycles division made headlines this year when it took the wraps off the nearly 200-hp 2009 V-Max. but the $18,000 pavement scorcher isn’t exactly the best choice for sensible commuters or even most weekend warriors. It’s just a bit too radical. In contrast to the mad Max, Star’s new V-Star 950 and V-Star 950 Tourer combine a 942 cc V-twin engine with a low seat height and manageable curb weightmaking it a solid bike for intermediate riders or those wanting to downsize from heavyweight cruisers. Best of all, the V-Star 950 starts at ...

The Bottom Line Pros Reasonable pricing defies upmarket styling Not too big/not too small sizing Low seat height of 26.6 inches makes it accessible to many body types Pleasing exhaust note Strong enough acceleration shouldn’t leave you craving a bigger engine Cons Seat comfort gets a bit iffy for taller riders on long rides A few rough edges (like sloppy wiring) remind you of the pricepoint Some engine vibrations at higher rpms Floorboard scraping inevitable on twisty roads The option of a taller stock windshield on the Tourer version would be nice Description V-Star 950 MSRP: $7,890 (black), $8,090 (blue or red) V-Star 950 Tourer MSRP: $8,990 (black or black cherry), $9,090 ...
