1995 Yamaha XV1100 Virago from Costa Rica
The rectifier-regulator blew one time and damaged the battery. Reason: the rectifier-regulator cables got damaged due to leaning the bike too much (the rectifier-regulator is located on the left side rear foot rest).
As a air-cooled bike, be mindful of traffic jams.
Great bike with a bullet proof engine. Simple and well rounded motorcycle. Dual front disk brakes provide plenty of stopping power, and the large rear drum brake works fine.
As a shaft driven motorcycle, it requires very little maintenance; if you change the oil in time you will have few issues with the bike.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
