Bolt is everything you need and nothing you don't. Old school meets new tech to create best in class performance. Less has never meant more.
Powered by a 942cc air-cooled V-twin engine housed in a steel double cradle frame, these new additions to Yamaha's lineup are individual in their raw looks with a casual and laidback attitude. Perfect for unwinding after a hard day's work, the Bolt will return riders to the roots of motorcycling as they re-discover the joy of riding a unique looking custom bike with the pulse and feeling that only an air-cooled V-twin can provide.
Compact and stylish with a low seat height, the Bolt delivers both a refined and agile ride, while retaining the timeless character and soul that is a critical part of owning such an individual machine. Yamaha's unique flat line style and use of exposed metal components accentuates the bike's pure simplicity while the V-twin motor provides both spirited performance and unquestioned reliability. Stripped back and stylish, the Bolt provides a perfect entry into the world of customisation.
The Bolt is available in standard guise in Pearl White or Raven Black, while the Bolt R-Spec -- available in Matt Grey and Camo Green -- injects a further element of sporting ability with twin 'piggy back' shock absorbers, a buckskin-look seat cover and the use of a painted stripe along the fuel tank.
The 60 degrees V-twin 942cc air-cooled engine, along with a pent-roof shaped combustion chamber and 9.0:1 compression ratio produces excellent power and superior low-end torque.
The beefy front 41mm fork tubes offer excellent suspension performance and the twin rear shocks, which include piggyback style gas chambers on the R-Spec model, have been tuned to provide great comfort and handling while contributing to the machine's low profile.
The low-set seat is a mere 690mm off the pavement, so most riders can easily put both feet firmly on the ground at a stop, as well as enjoy the great riding position the seat provides.
