XVS950A Midnight Star - Feel the pulse
The handsome new XVS950A Midnight Star is Yamaha’s latest addition to our head-turning cruiser line up. Powered by a gutsy V-twin engine, and equipped with a low seat height and a full-sized, easy-handling chassis, the long-and-low Midnight Star 950 is designed for the rider who wants heavyweight looks and lightweight feel. At the heart of the Midnight Star 950 is a newly-designed 942cc air-cooled 4-valve engine featuring a compact 60º V-twin configuration. Featuring an uneven firing interval of 300º and 420º, this belt-drive V-twin delivers a powerful pulse feeling – and the gutsy engine character is accentuated by the fact that no balancer shaft is fitted. With its XV1900-influenced ‘new style classic’ bodywork and large-diameter 18-inch front wheel, the Midnight Star 950 offers heavyweight looks with lightweight handling.
