Thumbs up 650A Classic and Classic Custom 650

Hi,
Two bikes, same "style", completely different! 650A is the new one, almost completely stock. Custom has lots of upgrades. Looking forward to learning more.

do you ride both yourself?

I find both names yamaha gave these bikes amusing, pretentious and self contradictory.

I dont like vehicle model names in general, so maybe its just me.

we are going to have to see photos of your customized Vstar 650 Custom

BTW, for most intensive porpoises the "classic" and the "custom" are the same bike - there are a few differences, but the drive trains are identical.

I have the custom, the classic was just purchased this year for my wife, although I've ridden them both. No pictures 'til they're washed! Lots of rain this season. Wet streets = dirty bike.

I've got the 650 Classic. It's the only model with a fat front tire. The Custom has the thinner front tire while the Silverado is a Custom with windshield and bags. Since my Classic has windshield and bags....I don't really know what it is anymore....lol.
