Star Motorcycles takes on the chopper theme

Honda raised eyebrows when their Fury debuted, but the strong-selling chopper has inspired Yamaha's Star Motorcycles division to release their own take on the genre.

The all-new 2011 Stryker chopper features:

  • A fork rake of 40 degrees-- 2 degrees more than the Fury
  • An 80 cubic inch (1,304cc), liquid-cooled v-twin engine with pipes unique to the bike
  • 5-speed tranmsission and belt final drive
  • A wide, 210-series rear tire and a 21 inch front wheel
  • Seat height: 26.4 inches
  • Wet weight: 646 pounds
  • Estimated fuel economy: 40.9 mpg
  • Price: $10,999 (Raven), $11,240 (Impact Blue or Reddish Copper)

When ordered in black, the Stryker is finished with a blacked out engine airbox and pipes, as opposed to chrome as found on the Impact Blue and Reddish Copper versions; that helps explain the $250 price difference. Photo © Tom Riles
