A medium-size adjustable windshield, low-pro?le studded touring seat with backrest and studded leather saddlebags are everything the V Star Silverado needs to be a great traveling bike. A SOHC 40-cubic-inch V-twin feeding power through an ef?cient shaft drive makes a great middleweight touring package. Rider floorboards provide great comfort on long rides, and the hardtail-looking rear end soaks up bumps with nearly four inches of rear wheel travel. The V Star Silverado achieves fuel economy up to an estimated 49 mpg with a fuel tank that holds 4.2 gallons of gas.
Beautifully chromed and polished 40-cubic-inch (649cc) air-cooled, SOHC 70-degree V-twin cranks out torquey low- and mid-range power with minimal engine rpm—maximum torque is reached at only 3000 rpm—for powerful, smooth cruising performance. Wide-ratio five-speed transmission ensures extremely usable, cruiser-friendly power delivery to the asphalt. Low-maintenance shaft drive provides quiet, reliable performance. Two-into-two chrome exhaust pipes create sleek styling and deliver maximum low- and mid-range engine output.
Stout, large-diameter steel frame designed to provide low seat height with ample legroom. Long, low 64-inch wheelbase adds to rider and passenger comfort and predictable handling. Stylish heel/toe shifter adds versatility and enhances overall cruising comfort. Comfortably placed full-size rider floorboards enhance ride by minimizing vibration and fatigue. Beefy, telescopic front fork with stainless steel covers and 5.5 inches of travel ensures a smooth ride with stylish durability. Hardtail-looking frame conceals a link-type, preload-adjustable single rear shock with 3.9 inches of travel for excellent handling and a plush ride. Single front disc and rear drum brakes deliver strong, confidence-inspiring stopping power. Wide, retro-style handlebars evoke classic design with roomy ergonomics for enhanced rider comfort. Fat front tire on wire-spoked wheel combines retro styling with solid handling and traction.
Industry-leading Star Family fit and finish features rich, lustrous paint and extensive chrome accents that create a stunningly timeless machine. Deeply valanced steel front and rear fenders both durable and unmistakably classic. Large, 4.2-gallon teardrop fuel tank features class-leading fuel capacity for extra long-distance cruising range. Beautiful, tank-mounted speedometer designed with a large face for easy reading of tripmeter/odometer displays and turn signal, neutral, high beam and engine diagnostic indicator lights. Chrome 60/55-watt halogen headlight adds a nice stylish touch and maximizes nighttime visibility. Maintenance-free 12V 10AH battery ensures reliable, no-fuss starting.
