Yamaha has just unveiled the 2020 Bolt cruiser for the international market priced at $7,999 and it is all set to hit the streets by June.
The new Bolt carries forward its retro-themed styling but incorporates modern elements everywhere it can. The bike is essentially a bobber and gets a single seat and tear-drop shaped tank.
It gets the retro-styled round headlamp and a tail lamp but uses LEDs instead of conventional bulbs. Even the turn indicators are round LED units. The instrument cluster is a digital affair on a single round pod in the centre of the handlebar.
The Bolt is powered by a 942cc air-cooled V-twin engine that churns out 53.7 PS of power and 80 Nm of torque and sits in a double-cradle frame. The suspension comes via conventional 41 mm telescopic front forks and dual rear shock-absorbers.
The Bolt is available in two variants – Standard and R. the differences in the two variants stick to just cosmetics with a few decals, gold accents on the suspension and alloys on the R variant.
