Scale: 1:10 Die Cast
From the Manufacturer
The Yamaha Virago XV1100 was one of several in the Virago line and was positioned as large-size cruiser with an engine displacement of 1063 cc. It was unique in being one of the few cruiser-style motorcycles available with a shaft drive instead of a chain or belt final drive system, as well as a V-twin engine of that size. Its heavily chromed body styling was also distinctive. The Virago line was born in 1981 with the XV750. In 1982 the larger 920 was introduced alongside the 750, with several more deluxe features. The 920 was redesigned in 1984 and engine size increased to 1000 cc. In 1986 engine size was again increased to 1063 cc, resulting in the renamed XV1100. This model was discontinued in 2000 as the "Star" range of motorcycles took over as the cruiser line from Yamaha. Schuco is a legendary German toy manufacturer, founded in 1912. The company achieved worldwide fame with its toy cars manufactured in the ‘30s, ‘40s and ‘50s, many of which were patented. While Schuco continues to issue a limited number of metal retro-toys for collectors, today the company is better known for its amazing diecast vehicle replicas. Working directly with manufacturers and car collectors, Schuco painstakingly re-creates each vehicle in miniature, often incorporating tiny details only visible with a magnifying glass. Most Schuco models are issued in specified limited quantities, and once gone, will not be made again. That’s why wise collectors know that a Schuco model isn’t just a purchase: It’s an investment with a lifetime return of enjoyment.
