Yamaha Stryker 2014

Choppers are hot. Sinister paint schemes are hot. But beneath the hyperbole, there’s an excellent motorcycle. Using a version of the V Star 1300’s liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, 60-degree V-twin, the Stryker is built on a steel-tube frame that combines a radical, 40-degree fork rake with a more-rational 36-degree steering-head angle. The result is chopper looks with no bar-flop. And both fenders are no-kidding steel. All for just a bit more than 11 thou. Yep, that’s hot. Available in Matte Gray, Candy Red, or Impact Blue.
