Yamaha V Star 1300 Tourer 2014

A touring cruiser doesn’t necessarily have to displace almost 2 liters to get the job done. Example: the capable, comfortable V Star 1300 Tourer. Don’t let the cylinder finning fool you, either: This 60-degree V-twin is liquid-cooled, its radiator tucked almost out of sight between the front downtimes. It has the usual over-the-road accoutrements—windshield, backrest, and usefully sized leather-wrapped hard saddlebags. Its headlight shell and belt guards are finished in sparkling chrome that contrasts with the gloss-black, steel-tube frame. This is a full-size, capable tourer at an excellent price.
