2014 Yamaha V-Star 650 Custom from Canada


Basic transportation. Nice looking. Reliable. Perhaps a little boring


Nothing. Over 5 years and 15,000 KM it was as reliable as a stone axe.

General Comments:

I bought my 650 Custom new for a very good price. I mostly rode it around town and on the local country roads, though I did take it out of town on the occasional long-weekend road trip.

It never gave me a single problem, but it was perhaps slightly boring. It was a very reliable bike, good transportation, but... unexciting. It was the motorcycle equivalent of a Toyota Camry.

I have no regrets about owning it, but after five years I was ready to move on to something completely different.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
