“Best bike I have owned in 37 years of riding!”

Written on: 17/07/2011 by Pete-Stagg (1 review written)

This bike is awesome! Starts,runs and handles great. I have owned 3 Harley's and all of them have broken down time after time so this is not a poor man's Harley! Never been more comfortable on a bike in my life and even though homeless for a while I could not get myself to sell her. If you get the chance to own one them grab it… Read Full Review

“Super reliability from this V-twin Yamaha donk. Looks...”

Written on: 24/09/2008 by Andrew Bowering (1 review written)

Super reliability from this V-twin Yamaha donk. Looks 'so' cool and while not being a Harley is about as close as you can get to a Softail or Fatboy without the extra $10k (Aus). I love this bike. As a 50+ year old rider returning to motorcycling after 30 years this is the ideal ride - smooth, controlled and gets heads turning. I've got my wife (who has never been a motorcyclist) getting her own bike to join me cruising on lazy weekends. Yamaha XV1600's rock!… Read Full Review

I started driving on a Kawasaki 450 ltd, then I drove a Yamaha Dragstar classic 1100, a Honda Shadow C3 1100 and now I drive the best motor ever which can compare in cruiserworld whith any other brand. I had a lot of testdrives on every famous brands before I decided to buy one. It is super, it is great, it is amazing, it's the best… Read Full Review

“It € s a great bike if you can lift and ride it and...”

Written on: 31/05/2008 by ghostbiker (13 reviews written)

It € s a great bike if you can lift and ride it and be able to push it backwards to get it on the road. If you have a slanted drive like myself. That said the gears were too long in 1st to 3rd. it vibrate badly in up to 4th gears. In towns and fuel economy was dreadful. 60 mls in town runs. On long haul 150 was the best I had. But fair play all bikes have faults and wildstar as its… Read Full Review

Baz1340's Response to ghostbiker's Review

Written on: 01/05/2011

i have a 2002 wildstar fited with cobra longshot pipes and a hypercharger, the fuel economy is amazine for a 1600 engine, on a long run i get 51 miles to a gallon, this is at speeds of 85-90 mph, i had a harley fatboy before this bike, its far better in every way at half the purchase price of the harley

Written on: 22/05/2008 by cjalty (1 review written)

I own a Yamaha Wildstar and love everything about it. It is a very heavy bike and has a lot of power in it. It's not the fastest bike in the world but then again it was never built or designed to be. I've never had a problem with mine, and that is a first for me!… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/02/2007 by livinabox (1 review written)

I wanted a Harley type V twin but not at their prices and lets face it every man and his dog wants a Harley like every school boy wants a spitfire to fly. I love it to bits and it sure turns heads. The front end doesn't like the wet so use the best tires. Heated grips can be got from bike shops for around £80 and well worth it. In all the big V twin write ups I've read it was the quickest over the standing quarter mile. My mate has a Harley with stage 2 head and I can keep with him all day. I'd… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/01/2007 by enigmauk (1 review written)

After owning an 1100 classic I decided I wanted to stay with Yamaha reliability and looks but up the touring comfort a little - After covering 24,000 miles in 4 years in extreme comfort on the 1100 the XV1600 was going to have a tough act to follow but I know the Wildstar has what it takes… Read Full Review
