2015 Yamaha Bolt C-Spec

Love it.



"On a basic Star Bolt platform, Yamaha has changed the riding position by moving the footpegs back and up (by 5.9 and 1.3 inches, respectively), fitting low clip-on bars, moving the single instrument cluster to the top of the triple clamp, and fitting a removable passenger-seat cowling. Suspension travel increases slightly (9mm up front, 6mm at the rear) for a sportier riding experience than the cruiser-ish Bolt. The visual changes are compelling; the lithe Bolt looks a hundred times racier in C-Spec."

looks good with the minimal effort from Yamaha to change much from the original Bolt, I don't know about that gap between the rear fender and seat cowl, it looks off to me....

Damn. The best looking version by far. More functional too.

Looks good but I'm thinking anyone with an inseam greater the 26 inches is going to be cramped, very cramped.

Yep, if they changed it to an old fashioned "breadloaf" style seat it would have more leg room and look better too.

Nice i.dea for controls and body work. Now just take 2 inches from the forks and add it to the shocks. Give it a proper 'cafe' stance to go with its "C spec" name.

Love it... It's like 75% of the custom things I would have done to a Bolt, already knocked out. Lets see one with some dirt road tires and a high-pipe! Something tells me this is not going to be a good match for my 36" inseam though.

I love the Japanese, but I do wish they were taller.

Loose the cowl, bob that rear fender, and it'll would be something that I'd be interested in.
