New York, N.Y. January 21, 2011 - Star Motorcycles and Yamaha Motor Corporation U.S.A. are proud to unveil two new stunning custom 2011 Star Stryker motorcycles at today’s New York IMS show at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City.

Both bikes were inspired by renowned UFC fighter Diego Sanchez, who graciously accepted one of the two customs today directly from Star motorcycles.


The second bike will be the centerpiece for a new consumer sweepstakes promotion from Star Motorcycles with details to be announced soon.

 Both bikes were customized by Chris Hagest of Low and Mean customs based in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.

Sanchez, who was the winner of the first season of The Ultimate Fighter reality series and currently competes as a welterweight with the Ultimate Fighting Championship, was on hand to accept his new Star Stryker at the show.


“I am really excited about my new Star Stryker,” said Sanchez, “Chris has taken my direction and truly turned it into a work of art and I cannot wait to go riding!”
