Yamaha will reveal a new Star cruiser on March 9 during Daytona Bike Week. To promote the upcoming launch, Yamaha released a teaser video revealing a few fleeting glimpses of the new model along with the tag line “less is more”.
The video reveals some details such as dual rear shocks, a solo seat and a new single exhaust design. The key however is the “less is more” slogan which likely refers to the engine displacement. Most Star models have engines larger than 1000cc with the V Star models offering smaller engines in displacements of 942cc, 649cc and 249cc. Perhaps we can expect an engine in the 800cc range to compete against Harley-Davidson‘s 883cc Sportsters or Honda‘s 749cc Shadows.
Here is what Yamaha has to say about the new model:
“Less is more. Or as in this case of the latest Star Motorcycle, much more. More attitude. More style. More simplicity. More fun. And more performance than a bike like this ever had. What is it? It’s a whole new bike whose time has finally come. And it’s coming … in just a few short days.”
