Magazine Articles:

Rider -- February 2007, page 24 -- LITTLE BIG CRUISER: 2007 Yamaha V Star 1300 Tourer

    "For starters the V Star 1300 is now fuel injected, with dual 40mm throttle bodies feeding an all-new engine with four valves per cylinder (as opposed to the V Star 1100's two). The big change is that the new bike is liquid-cooled, making it the first such Yamaha cruiser in a decade. To keep the traditional look of an air-cooled engine, the 1300 uses internal coolant passages with brushed exterior cooling fins for a clean, traditional cruiser engine look. The radiator is cleverly positioned between the frame spars, with the inlets and outlets neatly tucked above and below the engine -- out of sight to the casual observer." -- Troy Siahaan, Road Test Editor
