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.
