Laid back cruiser with a big heart

Hop on an XVS1300A Midnight Star, and you'll see that laid-back, cruiser style doesn't have to mean laid-back horsepower. Its engine features forged pistons, 4-valve heads and shortstroke con-rods, so every time you hit the throttle you feel a knockout, low-down punch, that turns into serious power.

Twin balancers tune out the unwanted vibrations that can make long journeys wearing, without losing those feel-good power pulses. And an intelligent Unified Brake System offers independent or combined wheel braking for total control.

And it all comes in a package of classic 1930s-inspired styling, with a tight body and low silhouette that's old-school with a radical new twist.


  • Balancers tune out rattles, but allow power pulses
  • Classic 'wild streamline' styling
  • Monocross rear suspension for smoothest of rides
  • High torque, liquid-cooled V-twin engine
  • Long-and-low chassis with great handling
  • Large, 'air-cooling design' fins
