I owned lots of bikes various sizes and makes, Yamaha put out a fantastic V-twin here upgraded from the Virago. I owned a 81-XV750 Virago and the starter sucked but the new V-star 650 great start and great starter very snappy 0-60 faster than my 750 but then the top end of the 750 wins. Love the gas tank size, I don't have to fill up every 5 blocks like the old 750.Gas mileage v-star 650 wins there amazing. Price of this machine unbelievably cheaper than a Honda Ace with a shaft drive .....screw the old chain system.....messy crap.......lots of chrome on the motor and pipes look out Harley the Yam is coming to chew you up, love the sound of the motor it so quite with stock pipes neighbor love that. So last call its a winner!!!!

Having ridden for over 40 plus years but not owned a bike for several years it was difficult to know where to begin again. After searching at several dealers of most makes there was no question to going with the Yamaha. A great ride and feel, but a little short on the top end.

I've owned a few motorcycles in my 30 years of riding, from 50cc up to 1200cc's, and let me tell you that this is the ONLY bike I would never consider selling. I have ridden this bike in sunshine, sleet, and downpours, without a hitch! It handles like a dream, and is the prettiest machine I've had the privilege of owning. With only Yamaha bolt-on accessories aboard, it has won first place in every contest it has been entered in. I cannot believe how many people, both motorcyclists and non-riders who are stumped by the brand and size of this machine, not to mention it's sheer beauty. As for reliability, the only problem I've encountered was that if you get a flat tire, the replacement tube for the rear tire is an odd size and not readily available. Overall, no complaints.

This is the first bike I've owned and it has made a great impression on me. If I do move up to a bigger bike it will be the 1100 classic. You cannot beat the looks and ride on this machine and the accessories are endless, plus it gets a lot of attention.
