Choppers (those caricatures of motorcycles with their exaggeratedly long front forks were) born in the US during the Sixties and quickly inspired the Japanese factories to produce Americanized "cruiser" models. The fashion took longer to catch on in Europe, but during the late 1990s custom bikes, represented more than 13 percent of the European market, with the Yamaha XV535 dominating the scene.
Redefining the Everyday Motorcycle
Custom styling underpinned a new trend towards sensible, practical bikes putting greater emphasis on enjoying riding in a laid back, safety-conscious manner rather than emphasizing sheer performance. Modern custom bikes have stylishly reinvented a forgotten role of the motorcycle, that of providing civilized daily transportation. Easy to ride, clean and economical, the XV535 was also extremely competitively priced, making it the best-seller in its category.
Stylish and Trouble-Free
With a low saddle height making it easy to handle, the XV535 keeps its center of gravity as near the ground as possible by employing a stylish tear-drop fuel tank that only holds a 1.3-gallon reserve supply; the main 2.25-gallon tank is mounted beneath the saddle. The generous use of chrome plating sets off the engine (which, following American tradition, simply has to be a V-twin, whose torque and flexibility suit such a bike to perfection) to maximum advantage.

The XV 535 DX Virago has a clear, analogue speedo but no fuel light or rev counter. However, the reserve switch is on the bars, which is a bonus. Good mirrors but they do vibrate at high revs.
