WOW!...just saw the new '15 V-Star Deluxe

Saw the new Fire engine red & black V-Star 1300 DeLuxe up close and personal at Star's Bike Week tent. Makes my Boring Battleship Grey 2014 look, well...boring! I do wonder how well the black engine and exhaust treatments will hold up over time, but it's a sharp bike. If I hadn't already done so many upgrades to my '14, I'd be VERY tempted to trade.

Yes I agree it's a new sharp look. I'm glad that Yamaha has modernized their 1300's. I have an 07 and if I hadn't invested my time and money on the bike I would definitely trade it in for a 2015 Deluxe for sure

Sharp looking bike. I dont think I like that "80 Inch" decal but it wouldnt be a show-stopper !!

I wonder what that bike will go for? Should be less expensive to build with the black-out (vs. chrome) engine components.

Neat.

Well aren't all v star models made out of plastic. Even the aftermarket accessories are made up of ABS plastic. If you want billet Chrome u need to buy a Harley 😜

I do like those. And I'm glad more bikes are going away from chrome. My next one day bike might be one of the Deluxes.

Really like the looks, not the decal. As far as black lasting, I did notice, I think, Cobra give lifetime warranty on chrome but not black.
