The Yamaha Star Stratoliner heart is a powerful 1854cc air-cooled, pushrod v-twin engine. It’s the signature model for the new Star brand image.
The Stratoliner expresses that pleasing 1930s Art Deco/ Streamline Moderne design that was influenced by technologies in aviation, ballistics, and other fields requiring high velocity. Streamline Moderne evokes movement and speed while standing still.
The Stratoliner is pleasing to the eye and delivers a positive experience in the saddle. Yamaha spent significant time and effort on the components to build an outstanding motorcycle. The air cooled engine delivers horsepower and torque numbers comparable to the established liquid-cooled brethren. (No small feat.)
I think this is one of the best motorcycles I have ever driven. I got a chance to ride a pre-release model and it had everything… looks, power, handling and did I mention power?

What impresses most about the Stratoliner is the attention to detail the designers gave the bike. Youâ€™ll notice while eyeballing the handlebars that the handgrips are curved and molded in the Art Deco style and provide better ergonomics. The closer you look at the bike, the more you notice these fine details that werenâ€™t just plucked from the universal Yamaha parts bin.
The big reflector-optic headlight does an exceptional job of lighting the road at night. The quick-detach windshield deflects wind top and bottom and doesn’t create any buffeting. You can lift it off in seconds without using tools.
Star has also recognized more than most of its competitors that customization is at the core of the customer experience with cruisers. At Metric Thunder we have a lot of accessories that can customize your Star and increase your satisfaction with your bike. All of our Star goodies are just one click away.
