The Yamaha Virago 535 is a motorcycle manufactured by Yamaha Motor Corporation. It is one of several in the Virago line and is positioned as mid-size metric cruiser with an engine displacement of 535 cc.

It is unique in being one of the few smaller 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. Even though it is a cruiser it is not ideal for cruising, mainly due to the air-cooled motor. Its heavily chromed body styling is also distinctive.

This model was discontinued in 2001 as the "star" range of motorcycles from took over as the cruiser line from Yamaha. The V-Star 650 (known as the DragStar in Europe) is often seen as the successor to the XV535.
