Yamaha believes that the cruiser segment is slightly changing and the big deep-fendered, classic-styled bikes are now less popular then they were seven years ago. As a result, the Japanese company takes a back-to-basics approach as it thinks that the new trend focuses more on the motorcycle itself and less on chrome and fancy accessories.

With these aspects in mind Yamaha designed the new Bolt which is also available in a slightly sportier R-Spec version.

In terms of style the Yamaha Bolt R-Spec comes with special colors, remote reservoir shocks, cool textured-color stitched seat and blacked-out mirrors.

Like the standard Bolt, the Bolt R-spec is equipped with a fuel injected, 4-valve, V-Star 950 engine which is paired with a five speed transmission. A "raw metal" theme highlights the engine styling, and you’ll also like the minimalist, old-school fuel tank and the limited bodywork which leaves the motorcycle’s mechanics completely exposed.

The 2013 Yamaha Bolt R-Spec if available on the US market with a starting price of $8,290.

The classic motorcycles were always a great source of inspiration for the modern models. Thereby, when designing the Bolt, Yamaha’s engineers decided to give it a retro look mixed with a few contemporary lines. Needless to say that the result is quite stunning as the bike looks gorgeous and we love its compact bobber-style design.

But a beautiful bike without a capable engine is like a body without a heart, thereby, the Yamaha Bolt is powered by a modern, fuel injected, 4-valve, V-Star 950 engine which is mated on a five speed transmission.

Moreover, the motorcycle’s slim body and low seat design offer a comfortable riding position and also help to assure an agile maneuverability and a stable handling feel.
