Yamaha XV1900A custom cruiser

Custom motorcycle registrations are on the rise, and there’s a new kid on the block! Cut-down tourer versions of traditional cruiser machines are popular in the USA, and Yamaha has just released a new variant in kit form – the Yamaha XV1900A.

Styled for custom cruising, the new 2013 Yamaha XV1900A Midnight Star CFD (Casual Full Dress) brings both elegance and luxurious comfort to the cruiser market while retaining the reputation for power and performance that is associated with this V-twin family.

The XV1900A CFD enhances the overall riding experience thanks to a host of new features, while the new full-width fairing combines style with effective wind protection. The two spacious colour-matched hard cases with quick-release fixings and one-touch openers make the XV1900A an even more attractive tourer.

To further enhance the usability of the powerful 1900cc air-cooled V-twin engine, the new model now features an ‘assist and slipper’ clutch. This new design of clutch reduces the effort required to operate while also enhancing the motorcycle’s stability under deceleration.

Suggested RRP: £15,999
