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. Powered by a 942cc air-cooled V-twin engine housed in a steel double cradle frame, these new additions to Yamaha's lineup are individual in their raw looks with a casual and laidback attitude. Perfect for unwinding after a hard day’s work, the Bolt will return riders to the roots of motorcycling as they 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.
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. Yamaha’s unique flat line style and use of exposed metal components accentuates the bike’s pure simplicity while the V-twin motor provides both spirited performance and unquestioned reliability. Stripped back and stylish, the Bolt provides a perfect entry into the world of customisation.
The 60º 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.
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 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.
A round, smoked-lens LCD digital speedometer adds to the modern take on the traditional bobber style.
LED rear taillight looks cool and adds to the modern bobber appeal.
