Bolt R-Spec is a bobber-styled ride that encapsulates the stripped back look wrapped around a pulsating V-twin.
Compact and stylish with a low seat height, this Bolt delivers a refined and agile ride while retaining the character that is a critical part of owning such an individual machine. Yamaha's flat line style and use of exposed metal components accentuates the bike's pure simplicity while the V-twin motor provides spirited performance and unquestioned reliability.
The stripped back Bolt also provides a perfect entry into the world of customisation.
Bolt is everything you need and nothing you don't.
A round, smoked-lens LCD digital speedometer adds to the modern take on the traditional bobber style.
The 298mm front disc brake and 298mm rear disc brake both use wave rotors, the style usually found on sport bikes. The front brake uses a floating-mount for great heat-distortion resistance, contributing to excellent braking performance.
2 into 1 exhaust
The minimalist-style 2-into-1 exhaust pipe layout contributes to a lively performance and styling of the machine while delivering a throaty and pleasing exhaust note.
The 60° 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.
Make it Your Own
The options for the Bolt are limited only by the owner's imagination. And as the perfect canvas for customisation, Bolt is the ultimate example of that philosophy.
Piggy Back Rear Shocks
The beefy front 41mm fork tubes offer excellent suspension performance and the twin 'piggy back' rear shocks, have been tuned to provide great comfort and handling while contributing to the machine's low profile.
