2010 Yamaha V Star 950 Tourer


The 2010 Yamaha V Star 950 is still relatively new, being introduced in the model year 2009. With wide tires, a thick fork, and backswept handlebars, the Yamaha V Star 950 is a cruiser, and the Yamaha PR is calling the streamlined styling of the V Star 950 the ""New Classic Design."" Yamaha PR goes on to say that ""designers used the influence of a single, horizontal line along the entire body, almost as if the wind has sculpted the machine.’’ Whatever the reason for influencing the appearance, the motorbike does hold its own over the competition. Belonging to the middleweight cruiser class, the 2010 Yamaha V Star 950 appeals to those who are looking for a friendly entry-level cruiser, and it caters well to seasoned riders. The 2010 V Star 950 from Yamaha does offer a great performance. However, one of this bike’s drawbacks is that it has minimal ground clearance. The V Star 950 comes in Candy Red, Pearl White, and Raven
