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.

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.
