|Inspiration for the Stryker?|
My Beloved 1987 Yamaha Virago
|A Stryking Pose... pun intended! ;-)|
Wet Weight: 293kg (646 lbs) - Yikes!
|At It's Heart: A Liquid-cooled, SOHC, 8-valves, 60 degree V-twin|
Maximum Torque: 10.9 kg-m (78.8 ft-lbs.) @ 3,500 rpm
|Nowadays Hoppy is sporting a different kind of rubber below his belt... ;-)|

|Personally, I love the Yamaha V-Twin Rumble|
Hoppy - "Pipes Could Be Louder"
(But he is probably partially deaf! :-p)
|Belt Drive Eliminates Messy Chain Maintenance|
|The Instrument Cluster is basic but functional |
& within eye view allowing to keep your eyes on the road.
|Unsightly Wires and other tidbits could have been Cleaned Up By Yamaha|
Fuel Capacity: 15 litres (3.3 Imp. gal.) Gives Decent Range
