Star Raider Custom: First Look.. In stock and ready to ride!

We’ve gotten our first Raider Custom from Star Motorcycles.

 You won’t see many of these on the road.  It’s big, it’s shiny, and it’s got a whole bunch of custom features you won’t see on any other bike; Including factory custom paint and wheels. Currently we’re only slated to get one so like the Harley CVO motorcycles it won’t be available for long. Take a look:

 
The First Star Custom in stock.

The First Star Custom Raider

Key Features:
  • The Raider was inspired by the custom chopper movement, but since it’s a Star, it had to also handle, stop and go.
  • 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.
  • Estimated 42 mpg* means this cruiser can go the distance between fill-ups.

the First Star Raider Custom

Engine:
  • 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 below 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.
 
Chassis/Suspension:
  • All-aluminum cast 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 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 out back provides a smooth ride under varying loads.
  • Flangeless fuel tank carries a full 4.2 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 and 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.
  • 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 multireflector headlight, LED taillight and amber turn signals behind clear lenses give a custom look.
  • 02 sensor and three-way catalyst reduce emissions.
