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.
Perfect for unwinding after a hard day’s work, the Bolt will return you to the roots of motorcycling as you 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.
The Bolt is available in standard guise in Pearl White or Raven, while the Bolt R-Spec available in Matt Grey 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.
|Fuel-injected V-twin engine
The air-cooled 60-degree V-twin engine produces 80Nm of torque at 3,000rpm, making it ideal for urban use as well as energetic performance outside of the city. With a capacity of 58-cubicinches (942cc) the motor’s cylinders have a composite plating while the piston is built from forged aluminium for reliability as well as performance.
|Revised intake system
Designed for outstanding efficiency and to contribute to the pure look of the bike, the new compact air cleaner is located on the right side of the motor. This new style of air cleaner gives the Bolt motor excellent torque characteristics at low revs.
|Re-modelled exhaust system
New 3D maps for the ignition timing and fuel injection increase the V-twin engine’s already excellent acceleration in the mid and low-speed ranges, optimising its urban performance. To match this new fuel mapping, and further boost low to mid-range acceleration, the Bolt also features a newly designed 2-into-1 exhaust pipe layout.
|New double cradle steel frame
The V-twin engine has a rigid mount system to allow it to transfer the motor’s pulse through to the rider. A short wheelbase provides a light and agile ride for maximum manoeuvrability as well as a neutral and stable feeling when cruising. Upfront 41mm conventional style forks compliment the traditional look of the twin shock absorbers.
| New 12-spoke wheels with wave discs
To keep the bobber look, the Bolt utilises newly designed 12-spoke cast wheels in 100/90-19 size front and 150/80-16 size rear. Together with the sporty suspension and floating rotor 298mm wave discs, these wheel and tyre sizes offer the optimum balance of performance, grip and feeling from the road’s surface.
|Slim and stripped down look
Yamaha’s unique flat line style and use of exposed metal components accentuates the bike’s pure simplicity while the V-twin motor gives a compact heart to the motorcycle. The Bolt has a raw metallic image while remaining simple in its design and sporty in its performance.
|Single Headlight and LED rear light
The single round headlight and jewellery-look round LED rear light, use of stainless steel highlights and cut-down steel fenders all accentuate the Bolts’s bobber look.
|Teardrop fuel tank
A 12 litre teardrop style fuel tank and round LCD speedometer introduce another interesting visual element into the Bolt.
|Rubber damped clutch to reduce rider fatigue
To aid urban use a rubber damper is incorporated within the clutch mechanism, helping to reduce rider fatigue during frequent use.
|Custom fuel tank
The Bolt R’s 12-litre teardrop fuel tank is customised with a central stripe of paint.
|Buckskin-look seat cover
The Bolt R also features a buckskin-look seat cover
|Piggy back rear shocks
The Bolt R receives upgraded twin piggyback shocks with compression adjustment.
Bolt 950 – $12,999
R-Spec – $13,599
A quote from our first Bolt customer
Hi Steve, just letting you know that I got home in one piece. Now that I've ridden the bolt I can tell you that Yamaha has got it right. I can't believe the torque it's got, 5th gear up the Clyde mountain with power to spare. The lights are more than adequate especially high beam, which I found isn't a good idea to put on when your going through a swarm of grasshoppers, lol. I'm stoked with this bike its more than superseded my expectations. Anyway thanks for your help and patience love the bike. Regards Dave
