After weeks of generating excitement on social media, Yamaha’s Star Motorcycles pulled the cover off its 2014 Bolt and Bolt R-Spec performance bobber models Saturday at Daytona Bike Week.
Following is the release about the bikes from Star Motorcycles:
Star Motorcycles is proud to introduce the all-new Bolt and Bolt R-Spec cruisers.
Powered by a fuel-injected, 58-cubic-inch (950cc), air-cooled, V-Twin engine, mounted in a double-cradle frame, the Bolt and Bolt R-Spec are “Performance Bobbers” that will attract a new cruiser buyer to the Star brand.
The Bolt and Bolt R-Spec are a modern interpretation of old-school “bobbers,” specifically designed to offer unique style, comfort, and performance. Both models are “step out of the norm” cruisers that deliver light weight and unmatched maneuverability.
Performance components such as wave-type brake rotors and a smoked-lens digital meter are standard on both Bolt models, while the Bolt R-Spec ups the ante even more with the addition of remote-reservoir shocks, a suede-type seat with colored stitching, and special paint and graphics.
With their 60° V-Twin engines, belt drive, and steel fenders, the Bolt and Bolt R-Spec provide the perfect platform for personalization. Star plans to unveil a complete line of custom accessories for the Bolt and Bolt R-Spec in the coming weeks.
The Bolt will be available in two color options — Raven and Pearl White — and will retail for $7,990, with bikes available in dealerships starting in April. The Bolt R-Spec can be had in your choice of Matte Grey and Camo Green and will retail for $8,290, with bikes available in dealerships starting in July.
