2023 Yamaha Bolt R-Spec
BORN WITH PERFORMANCE
Featuring a torquey V-Twin engine, this performance bobber combines old-school soul and modern form.
Features may include:
- Urban Performance Styling
The Bolt R-Spec is stripped down with minimal chrome, epitomizing the “Urban Performance Bobber” look. The compact chassis proudly showcases the 58-cubic-inch (942cc) air-cooled 60-degree V-twin powerplant.
- Rider-Focused Engine
The Bolt R-Spec uses Yamaha’s advanced technology to create a riding experience superior to other similarly sized machines. Fuel injection and ignition timing maps have been chosen specifically for this bike to deliver class-leading performance with strong low- and mid-range torque that’s sure to bring a smile to every rider’s face.
- Compact, Stable Chassis
The slim body and low seat design combine to give the Bolt R-Spec light maneuverability and a stable handling feel. The upright riding posture helps the rider feel the wind, hear the sounds and experience the pulse of the machine.
- Air-Cooled V-Twin
The 58-cubic-inch (942cc) engine is an air-cooled SOHC 60-degree V-twin with four valves per cylinder, a pent-roof shaped combustion chamber and 9.0:1 compression ratio. The engine is designed to provide excellent power and superior low-end torque.
- Low Friction Internals
Special roller-type rocker arms with needle bearings are used to keep friction loss to a minimum, increase durability and help the engine achieve the ideal performance characteristics.
- Advanced Cylinder Design
The pent-roof combustion chamber shape was precisely engineered to direct the fuel/air charge to the center of the piston for more efficient combustion and maximum power. Ceramic-composite plated cylinders provide excellent heat dissipation and reduced oil consumption.
- Handling-Focused Frame
A double-cradle frame provides precise handling and enhances city riding enjoyment thanks to the rigid mount system mounting the engine directly to the frame.
- Low Seat Height
The low-set seat provides a great riding position while being a mere 27.2 inches off the pavement, so most riders can easily put both feet firmly on the ground at a stop.
- Agile Wheelbase
Bolt R-Spec’s short, 61.8-inch wheelbase contributes to the bike’s great handling, providing precise, tight turns in city riding and solid, stable handling on the open road.
- Modern Lighting
LED rear taillight looks cool and adds to the modern bobber appeal.
- Slick Instruments
Compact digital LCD meter assembly provides clean styling with excellent visibility.
- Real Steel Fenders
Steel front and rear fenders are ideal for personalization, including paint and customization.
- Bobber-Style Seat
Solo rider saddle adds to the minimalist bobber look while providing support for longer rides.
