Vstar 950

One ride on the versatile V-Star 950 reveals a benchmark in middleweight cruising.

With a super low seat height, the XVS950A is designed to appeal to a wide range of people looking for a sweet handling yet punchy V-twin.

Beyond the traditional air-cooled exterior you’ll find all the latest technology including fuel injection, four-valve cylinder heads, ceramic-composite-lined cylinders and forged aluminium pistons that mean business.

The chassis design has been mass centralised with a carefully designed rigidity in the longitudinal, lateral and torsional directions to offer an awesome riding experience. Add a large diameter, low profile front tyre and optimal front end weighting and you’ll be searching out sweeping bends to enjoy with confidence.

XVS950A. Ride the benchmark.
