I’m hoping people in this forum can help me out. I’ve been wanting to get a specific Yamaha Stryker model for a while now, and I’m now in a place I can store it. The problem is now the model is pretty hard to find, and I need help from those more knowledgeable than me to help me with some specifics on the model.
The model I’m looking for is a 2015 Stryker with the dark gray paint job and decal that states “eighty inch 80” on the gas tank. I’ve found a 2014 model that looks like it may be the same, but I need knowledgeable people to let me know if that’s the case. Here are the questions I have I’m hoping people here can help me with:
  • Does the dark gray paint job with “eighty inch 80” on the gas tank have a name I can use to make searching for it easier?
  • Are the 2014 and 2015 versions of that model exactly the same?
  • Is the bullet cowl version of that model exactly the same as the version without, so I can simply take off the bullet cowl (I’m not a fan of that look)?
I’ve attached a few pictures of the model I’m looking for. Thanks in advance for any help!

  • Yes!, Star (Yamaha) Stryker xvs 1300c -custom-, commercially speaking.:)
  • All the strykers are the same, in your country except California models due to emissions. Looks good in grey, -the new black-.
  • Refer to answer 2.

Good luck, it,s a great machine.

Bullet Cowl is just an extra piece, exactly the same otherwise. That being said, I am positive someone would buy the cowl from you if you got that model. It's just two bolts holding it on.

Thanks so much for the info, it's really helpful!

As a clarification for the first question, I'm asking if that particular grey paint job with the decal on the tank has a specific package name (i.e. "blackout" or "custom" or "legacy" or something like that)?

Thanks for the information. I think if I get a model that has the cowl I'll probably sell it.

The 15 will have LED turn signals. Only difference.

Nope, Vehícles have a technical name: service manual: XVS13CA and a commercial too: -Stryker- , that 14,s name is the same in matte gray..., cos there isn,t enough differences -bullet cowl- with the precedents color apart and that color hasn,t any special name; i.e. 14,s Stryker in impact blue, dark blue for the mortals..

Yep, second on preacherman's comment. I have a 2015 and it has LED signals and that's about the difference. My buddy had the exact bike you are looking for and just sold it. I don't think it has a particular identifying name. The bullet cowl is easy to remove, and apparently easy to sell as well.
