Yamaha XVS950A Midnight Star

Whether you're new to big cruisers, or have been riding them for years, it's hard not to be moved by the XVS950A Midnight Star.

It might be the low, comfortable riding position, or the grunting, uneven purr of the high-torque, 942cc V-twin engine. It could be the lightweight, easy handling, or the classic cruiser look, both of which are enhanced by a long-and-low chassis and some advanced technical flourishes. Whatever it is, this is a bike that will compel you to get on to the open road.

So mount up, sit back, and open up the throttle for pure, simple cruiser fun. It's what the bike was built for, after all.
