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).
