Style. Performance. Attitude. You might as well have it all.

If you want totally custom but would rather ride than wrench, have a look at the 2010 Yamaha Star Raider S. The 113 cubic inch fuel injected V-Twin engine that power it takes a back seat to no V-Twin when it comes to power and reliability. And the rest of the chopper-inspired Riader S is pure Star, designed and engineered by the world’s best bike builders. 2010 Raider S adds chrome accents.

When the engineers at Yamaha set out to produce a true custom machine, the easy part was the styling and attention to detail.

The trick was to combine “chopper” inspired styling with a chassis that would offer superior handling. The engineers at Yamaha were not willing to compromise. The Raider S had to deliver great handling and excellent ride quality. Discover the superior quality, styling and all round performance of the Raider S.

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 S was inspired by the custom chopper movement, but since it’s a Star, it had to also handle, stop and go.

•  The Star line offers the most diverse line of custom V-twins on the planet.

•  113-cubic-inch (1854cc) air-cooled, OHV with 4 valves per cylinder, pushrod 48-degree V-twin pumps out max torque at just 2500 rpm and max power at 4500 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.

•  Ceramic-composite plated cylinders for superior heat dissipation with forged pistons cooled by oil jets. Provides outstanding reliability and longer engine life.

•  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.

•  Two-into-one-into-two exhaust with Exhaust Ultimate Power valve (EXUP®) inside boosts torque in the 2500-3500-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.

•  All-aluminum cast frame is lightweight, 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 neutral handling and straight-line cruisability: 33-degree rake plus 6 degrees yoke angle gives total rake of 39 degrees and 102mm of trail.

•  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.

•  46mm fork tubes serve a sweet appearance and an excellent ride through 5.1 inches of wheel travel.

•  A tucked-out-of-sight single shock with adjustable spring preload out back provides a smooth ride under varying loads.

•  Flangeless fuel tank carries a full 4.1 gallons of fuel.

•  Front brake master cylinder with integrated lever operates a pair of 298mm front discs squeezed by strong monoblock calipers for excellent power and feel, with a 310mm disc out back.

•  Strong, light and narrow belt final drive contains embedded carbon fiber for even greater strength.

•  Wiring harness uses super-slim wires for compactness, are lighter weight 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.
