Mine was the only one I ever saw. It was a 1982 model and I bought it new in 1986 for $1,400. MSRP was $3,600. No one wanted them and I'm not sure why other than the styling was a little off. It had good power down low, was reasonably fast, handled better than expected, and was super comfortable to tour on two up, which is why I bought it. I kept it for 5 years and put almost 80,000 miles on it. More than any other bike I've owned. That said, I was never excited by it (and apparently neither was anyone else). I tried to sell it and couldn't. Listed it for $500 and never got a call. I ended up selling it to an mc boneyard for $400 and considered myself lucky to get anything.
It's a vstar
