2013 Star Bolt and Bolt R-Spec MotorcyclesStar has released two cruisers as early 2014 models – the Bolt and Bolt R-Spec.
Both “performance bobber” motorcycles use Star’s 942cc, fuel-injected air-cooled V-Twin hooked to a five-speed transmission. The engine is tuned for low and midrange torque, helping usability in urban settings.The Bolt and Bolt R-Spec both feature a single seat, 298mm wave disc brakes, a 16”/19” tire combination, a seat height of 27.2 inches, wheelbase of under 62 inches, and claimed wet weight of 540 pounds.The Bolt Spec-R receives some cool upgrades over the Bolt, including gold-accent shocks and a faux-suede seat with colored stitching.Attached above is a photo gallery of the 1200 x 800 images of the Bolt and Bolt R-Spec (the pics also make for great wallpaper).

Zero Electric ADV Bike + Al and Bridget from Throw Your Leg Over
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello everyone and welcome to Motos and Friends, a weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Electric mobility is everywhere nowadays. Whether it’s a car, a truck, an assisted bicycle, a scooter, or any number of new innovations, the electric revolution is certainly here. In this week’s first segment, Nic de Sena took a ride on Zero’s recently announced new Adventure bike—the Zero DSR-X. There’s been a lot of hype about this new arrival on the ADV scene, and of course the questions are many. Nic talks to me about whether Zero actually have a credible, alternative energy ADV bike—or if the machine is just simply an empty promise.
In our second segment, I chat with Al and Bridget from ‘Throw Your Leg Over’. They took time out to record this episode from somewhere in the middle of Romania, of all places.
These interesting Aussies have traveled—and painstakingly documented—the thousands of miles they’ve covered riding the best roads and sights through Australia, Tasmania, Europe, eastern Europe, and Scandinavia, among other places.
