The Bolt an Old School Bobber

Air-cooled, 942cc fuel-injected V-Twin.

The 60-degree engine mounts in an all-new, double-cradle steel frame with a short Wheelbase of only 61.8″ long, a low seat at at 27″ from ground. in a quite slim , uncluttered shape. Sspension is handled by a conventional 41mm fork with 4.7 inches of travel and pair of rear shocks that offer 2.8 inches of cushion. Twelve-spoke cast aluminum wheels are fitted with bias-ply tires in sizes 100/90-19 front and 150/80-16 rear.

The 3.2-gallon teardrop tank has subtle badges, the front and bobbed rear fenders are made of steel, and contemporary touches include an LED taillight in a classically styled housing, and an LCD speedometer beneath a smoked lens. The two-into-one exhaust features black headers, but with heat shields and muffler done in contrasting aluminum. Gold-anodized shocks with piggyback remote reservoirs distinguish the R-Spec model, which also has an upgraded saddle with contrast stitching. The standard Bolt is available in Raven or Pearl White, whereas the R-Spec comes in Matte Gray or Camo Green. Additionally, Star has created an extensive accessory line that will give these bikes many different looks. Want mini apes and bags? Star has ’em. Sissy bar? Check. Bikini fairing? Affirmative. The possibilities are endless, as could be seen by the numerous custom versions on display at the Bolt’s press unveiling. Yamaha 2014 Bolt arrives at dealerships in April, while the R-Spec model arrives mid-summer. The motorcycles are designed in the United States. (from CyrilHuze Blog)
