Key Features
 The V Star Custom is the lightest of the full-size Stars, which means great handling and performance are along for the ride, too.  
 Dual exhausts, steel fenders, custom-looking clear turn signals, lots of chrome—the V Star Custom represents tremendous cruiser bang for the buck.  
 Classic rigid-look rear end serves up 3.4 inches of rear wheel travel damped by a hidden preload-adjustable shock, offering up a great ride.  
 27.4-inch seat height lets riders get both feet on the pavement.  
 Estimated 48.9 mpg* means over 200 miles of riding before fill-ups.  
Engine
 Beautifully chromed and polished 40-cubic-inch (649 cc) 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 3,000 rpm—for powerful, smooth cruising performance.  
 Forged, lightweight pistons. Greater durability and reduced vibration and reciprocating mass.  
 Efficient and quiet shaft drive. Requires almost no maintenance.  
 Ceramic-composite, cylinder-bore plating ensures superior heat dissipation. Offers better cooling and longer engine life.  
 Thick, cylinder cooling fins. Enhances the stylish look while increasing efficiency.  
 Dual, heated Mikuni® 28 mm carburetors with a throttle position sensor (TPS) features a progressive pulley, electronic fuel pump and handy side-mounted air filter. Provides a consistent fuel flow, great throttle response and optimum power throughout the rev-range.  
 Wide-ratio five-speed transmission ensures extremely usable, cruiser-friendly power delivery to the asphalt.  
 Efficient and quiet shaft drive requires almost no maintenance.  
 Two-into-two chrome exhaust pipes create sleek styling and deliver maximum low- and mid-range engine output.  
Chassis / Suspension
 Stout, large-diameter steel frame is designed to provide low seat height with ample rider legroom.  
 The bobbed fender evokes a look that’s both sporty and stylish.  
 Extra long, 63.4-inch wheelbase adds to rider comfort, handling, and creates a long and low retro look.  
 Large, low-profile seat provides exceptional rider comfort while low, 27.4-inch seat height allows rider to put feet down for extra confidence at stoplights.  
 41 mm aluminum telescopic front fork with 5.5 inches of travel and tube protectors ensures a smooth ride with stylishly sporty durability.  
 Link-type, preload-adjustable single rear shock with 3.4 inches of travel provides excellent handling and plusher ride quality.  
 Rear shock is tucked out of sight under sporty bobtail fender for that classic, hardtail look.  
 Single front disc and rear drum brakes deliver strong, confidence-inspiring stopping power.  
 Narrow front tire on wire-spoked wheel completes the Custom’s design and delivers quick steering for sporty handling.
