CYCLE WORLD'S "BEST CRUISER", RIDER'S "BEST OF CLASS"

If you want totally custom but would rather ride than wrench, have a look at the Star Raider S. The 113-cubic-inch fuel-injected V-twin engine that powers it takes a back seat to no V-twin when it comes to power and reliability. And the rest of the chopper-inspired Raider S is pure Star, designed and engineered by the world's best bike builders. Raider S adds chrome accents.

Standard Features

Key Features:
 “S” model gets even more chrome: chrome triple clamps, fork sliders, air box cover, engine covers, headlight housing, handlebar risers, etc.  
 The Raider was inspired by the custom chopper movement, but since it’s a Star, it had to also handle, stop and go.  
 With the addition of this machine, the Star line offers the most diverse line of custom V-twins on the planet.  
 The Raider S achieves fuel economy up to an estimated 42 miles per gallon with a fuel tank that holds 4.2 gallons of gas.  
Engine:
 113-cubic-inch (1,854 cc) air-cooled, pushrod 48-degree V-twin pumps out max torque at just 2,500 rpm and max power at 4,500 rpm for powerful, relaxed cruising.  
 Four pushrod-activated valves and two spark plugs per cylinder provide optimum combustion efficiency along with classically beautiful engine architecture.  
 Plated cylinders and forged pistons cooled by oil jets provide outstanding reliability and long life. Twin counterbalancers keep things smooth but rumbly.  
 9.48:1 compression ratio and aggressive cam timing increase power output across the board.  
 Computer-controlled, twin-bore, fuel injection monitors multiple engine parameters to calculate perfect mixture under all conditions; wide-angle 12-hole fuel injectors provide excellent atomization.  
 A 3.5-liter airbox is hidden in the area behind the fuel tank for great performance and clean styling.  
 Custom exhaust inspired, “down-swept” design, two-into-one-into-two exhaust with Exhaust Ultimate Power valve (EXUP®) inside boosts torque in the 2,500-3,500-rpm range.  
 Special custom-machining of the cooling fin edges gives a jewel-like appearance to the engine as light hits it from different angles.  
Chassis/Suspension:
 All-aluminum frame is light, rigid and tuned for light, athletic handling. A light, Controlled-Fill, aluminum swingarm casting complements the bike’s lithe style.  
 Low, sculpted seat holds the rider in place, and pullback bars reach back to enforce a casual, urban cruising style.  
 A 6-degree yoke angle—the first ever on a street-legal Star Motorcycle—makes it possible to achieve that custom look as well as natural handling and straight-line cruisability: 34-degree rake plus 6 degrees yoke angle gives total rake of 40 degrees and 102 mm of trail, while bringing the fork closer to the steering axis.  
 Custom 5-spoke wheels carry a 120/70-21-inch bias tire up front, and a wide, 210/40-18 radial out back—the tallest and widest ever on a Star.  
 46 mm fork tubes serve up an excellent ride and a sweet appearance through 5.1 inches of wheel travel.  
 A tucked-out-of-sight single shock out back provides a smooth ride under varying loads.  
 New flangeless fuel tank carries a full 4.1 gallons of fuel.  
 Front brake master cylinder with integrated lever operates a pair of 298 mm front discs squeezed by strong monoblock calipers for excellent power and feel, with a 310 mm disc out back.  
 Strong, light and narrow belt final drive contains embedded carbon fiber for even greater strength.  
 Wiring harness uses lightweight AVSS wires, and switchgear wiring is routed inside the handlebar for a clean appearance.  
Additional Features:
 Left-thumb operated high-beam switch, and right-thumb activated accessory driving light switch for great visibility.  
 Jewel-like fit and finish, and Star quality paint, chrome and attention to detail are evident all over the Raider S.  
 Cool, tank-mounted instrumentation complements the custom look, and contains analog speedometer and fuel gauge, along with twin digital tripmeters, odometer and self-diagnostics.  
 Bright multi-reflector headlight, LED taillight and amber turn signals behind clear lenses give a custom look.  
 Oxygen sensor and three-way catalyst reduce emissions.
