The Yamaha XVS950CU BOLT series debuted in December 2013 as a bobber style motorcycle distinctive of the Star series that offers fun rides in the city. Since then, Yamahaâ€™s air-cooled V-twin cruiser has been a popular selling lineup.
The latest model released on February 10 features three new body colors.
Yamaha has established a stylish Dull Purplish Blue Metallic (blue) coloring for the standard model, XVS950CU BOLT (899,640 yen). The â€˜BOLTâ€™ logo on its traditional teardrop gas tank has also been renewed.
In addition, Yamaha has established Vivid Red Cocktail 1 (red) and Yellowish Gray Metallic 5 (gray) colors for its higher-end XVS950CU BOLT-R (945,000 yen) which features a rear suspension with a gold reserve tank, black leather seating with beige stitching, and front & rear spoke wheels, as well as its ABS-equipped XVS950CU BOLT-R (A) (995,760 yen). Both models come with a â€˜Starâ€™ logo on the gas tank.
The BOLT seriesâ€™ slim bobber style body based on a double cradle frame features a rigid-mounted air-cooled 60-degree V-twin engine that delivers smooth â€œurban fun ridesâ€ at low to mid speeds.
The wheelbase has been reduced to 1,570mm for sharp cornering and steady rides.
