Yamaha Canada Unveils 2014 Bolt

Written by  on Monday, 11 March 2013 09:10

Yamaha Motor Canada is proud to introduce the 2014 Yamaha Bolt. Powered by the fuel-injected, 4-valve, V-Star 950 engine, the Bolt showcases an all-new “less is more” design.

According to YMC, the Bolt is simple and compact, with a low seat height, and offers light, agile handling that instills rider confidence. A new breed of “crossover”, the Bolt is a blend of cruiser features in a chassis that offers a more natural, upright riding position. The Bolt is available in dealerships by the end of April and will be offered in Bluish White Cocktail and Metallic Black.

Yamaha Motor Canada Ltd. Motorcycle Product Manager, John Bayliss said “A new ‘back to basics’ trend is emerging in the motorcycle world. Designers and custom builders are stepping back to a time when the mechanical beauty of a motorcycle was highlighted in its design. The Bolt’s simple design, compact styling and V-twin power combine to offer an incredibly fun riding experience.”

Beginning in June, over 40 bolt-on accessories will be offered for the Yamaha Bolt. Everything from windshields to rims and saddlebags will be available to help personalize your Bolt.   

The Yamaha Bolt R-Spec will be available in dealerships by mid-summer 2013. The R-Spec model features premium gas charged piggyback shocks, a special upgraded seat finish and gas tank logo design. The Bolt R-Spec will be available in Matte Metallic Gray and High Sparkle Green.

With a MSRP of only $8,999 for the Yamaha Bolt and $9,199 for the Bolt R-Spec, less really is more!
