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.
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. 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 Bolt is available in standard guise in Pearl White or Raven, while the Bolt R-Spec available in Matt Grey or Camo Green 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.
To start enthusiasts on the customisation path, the Bolt is also be offered in two pre-customised models. The "Hell for Leather" model will include brass accents, mesh air cleaner, spring saddle, leather bags and rack, while the "Paint it Black" variant comes with a mean midnight cowl, mesh air cleaner and trick black engine covers.
