The Yamaha Stryker is the epitome of a cool cruiser that comes with some serious performance capabilities. Well touch on the latter in a little bit, but for now, the name of the game is the Strykers overall design, which, in a word, is downright sexy.
A muscular, forward-lunging look reinterprets the iconic custom chopper styling for the 21st century. With its high-end looks, the Stryker comes with a low seat height of 26.4," one of the lowest of its class on the market. There are also real steel fenders that can be easily customized, covering the wide 210-series rear tire and chopper-inspired 21-inch front wheel that reinforces the muscular styling of the bike. Merging with the narrow point of the saddle is a 4-gallon tank while added accessories, including custom seats, quick-release windscreens and luggage to billet wheels and backrests, all point to a package thats just as imposing as it is powerful.
A 1,304cc, liquid-cooled, short stroke, SOHC, 4-valve per cylinder, fuel injected, 60 V-twin engine powers the Stryker, pumping out impressive power and torque numbers for excellent cruising performance. The engine features a 36mm intake and 32mm exhaust valves with special single coil springs for great power and torque with valves angled at 20 degrees from the center. Specially designed roller rockers activate the valves, allowing a greater amount of valve lift without causing excessive camshaft wear and friction. The camshafts have also been specially designed for use with roller rockers with a pent roof combustion chamber design and optimized squish area forces the fuel and air mixture toward the center of the combustion chamber for more complete combustion and, in the end, power and cleaner emissions. A new exhaust system, designed specifically for Stryker, also adds to the awesome look of the bike while optimizing its engine performance.
The Yamaha Stryker delivers the kind of handling thats just unmatched in this mid-size custom cruiser segment. The muscular steering head on this double-cradle steel frame helps give the bike its lean, lightweight image. The 6 yoke and raked triple clamps combine to provide a total of 40 of fork rake, achieving the aggressive raked out image and solid straight-line performance thats tried-and-true for Yamaha. It also provides nimble handling characteristics, even at low speeds. As for the brakes, the Yamaha Stryker carries large 320 mm front discs to go with the 310mm rear disc brake, providing serious stopping power that helps in keeping the power of the Stryker within arms length.
