2003 Road Star Warrior Specifications

2003 Road Star Warrior Information

We know what you're thinking. Is the Warrior a cruiser or a sportbike? The answer is yes.

Yes, that's a pushrod, air-cooled, fuel injected, 102 cubic inch (1670cc) V-twin -- that'll blow your socks clean off.

And yes, that's a lightweight aluminum frame with a 41mm inverted fork, monoblock brake calipers and sticky performance tires on three-spoke alloy wheels supporting this welterweight Road Star.

You'll appreciate the Warrior's superior power-to-weight ratio when you dump the clutch and that 200-section rear tire hooks up.

We're talkin' bout a revolution here. The sound and fury of the gnarliest twin we've ever built is housed in a vessel designed to stop and turn like a sportbike.

Can you guess why the Warrior was Motorcyclist Magazine's Cruiser of the Year for `02? Simply put, "It stops and turns and soaks up the bumps better than anything else in cruiserdom."

Total performance. Does anybody make chaps with knee sliders?

Manufacturer's Sugg. Retail Price ... $11,999 ~ $12, 099*

FEATURES & BENEFITS

New for 2003:[*] Rear shock gains rebound damping adjustment to complement the already preload adjustable, link-type rear suspension. [*] Liquid Silver & Onyx with Indigo flames color options.[/list]Engine:
[*]The industry standard for V-twin excellence features 97mm cylinder bores
that provide 102 cubic inches (1670cc), pumping out incredible, asphalt-ripping
low-rpm torque and acceleration! [*] Air-cooled, long-stroke, OHV, 48 cylinders with pushrod valve actuation
keeps engine height down and ensures more uniform heat dissipation due to
absence of a cam chain case. [*]Larger-bore cylinder features cylinder head with larger cooling fins, ceramic
composite bore plating and a one-piece head cover (for greater rigidity around
the rocker arm) to provide more efficient heat dissipation. [*]Four-valve cylinder head design uses two spark plugs per cylinder for efficient
combustion and high power at all RPMa. [*]Valvetrain includes intake and exhaust rocker arms that reduce inertia during
high-rpm performance and higher-lift cams for increased horsepower. [*]Hydraulic valve lifters driven by twin camshafts deliver exceptional performance
and lower maintenance needs. [*]New-design, larger-bore pistons feature durable and lightweight forged construction
to accommodate higher-RPM performance with reduced vibration and less reciprocating
mass. [*]Rare earth flywheel magnet for faster-revving power delivery and increased
high-RPM durability. [*]Twin-bore fuel injection (FI) with throttle position sensor (TPS), aspirated
by free-breathing twin air cleaner system, ensures optimal fuel delivery,
great throttle response and maximum power throughout the rev range. [*]State-of-the-art electronic control unit (ECU) ensures precisely metered
fuel delivery and optimal ignition spark control using 3-D digital CD ignition
mapping for each cylinder. [*]ECU also controls engine air intake velocity by closing one of the dual
intake ducts during low-RPM operation for more efficient power delivery. [*]High-performance 2-into-1 exhaust system features stainless steel headers
and a massive muffler that boosts horsepower while putting out a throaty V-twin
growl. [*]Dry sump lubrication system uses a handy spin-on filter. [*]Smooth-shifting 5-speed transmission features close-ratio gearing for spine-tingling
roll-on performance at all RPM. [*]Smooth, low-maintenance belt drive system gets an all-new, narrower-design
belt that reduces unsprung weight for improved rear suspension performance.
[*]Electric starting system features solenoid-activated auto-decompressor for
easy starting.

[/list]Chassis/Suspension:
[*]Specially designed, aluminum double-cradle frame increases rigidity by 41%
(over standard Road Star frame) and offers tremendous strength and durability
with minimal flex. [*]Aluminum swingarm, born from R1 heritage, offers superb rigidity and a forward-mounted
pivot point that ensures excellent stability at speed and while cornering.
[*]Highly rigid, R1-derived 41mm Kayaba inverted telescopic fork with 5.3"
of travel for exceptional sport-oriented performance. [*]Beefy cast aluminum top and bottom triple clamps help increase fork rigidity.
[*]Link-type, preload-adjustable single rear shock delivers outstanding rear-wheel
tracking for precise handling and plush ride quality. [*]Dual 298mm front disc brakes feature R1-derived, one-piece 4-piston calipers
with fully floating rotors and 282mm rear disc brake with dual-piston caliper
combine for incredible, supersport-spec stopping power. [*]Lightweight, cast-aluminum 3-spoke wheels wear low-profile, competition-spec
120/70-ZR18 front and a huge 200/50-ZR17 rear Dunlop Sportmax radials for
awesome, launching-off-the-line traction and cornering grip. [*]Extra-long, 65.7" wheelbase and deep, plush saddle create long and
low center of gravity, added rider comfort and well-balanced handling. [*]Wide, swept-back, 1"-diameter, rubber-mounted handlebars are easy to
reach and reduce vibration to minimize fatigue. [/list]Additional Features:
[*]Industry-leading Star Family fit and finish features lustrous paint and
chrome accents (air cleaner, air scoop, mirrors and more) to create a machine
as stunning as it is powerful. [*]Totally trick digital headlight-mounted tachometer, odometer and dual tripmeters
with triple clamp-mounted analog speedometer. [*]Trick, R6-style LED taillight provides excellent visibility and very sano
look. [*]Steel fenders combine timeless styling with sleek, aerodynamic profile.
[*]Extra-wide, 4.0-gallon fuel tank features low-fuel warning light and R1
type automatic tripmeter. [*]Fork lock integrated into main ignition switch for extra convenience. [*]Powerful 12V 60/55-watt multi-reflector halogen headlight maximizes nighttime
visibility and comes with beautiful chrome finish.
