2014 Star Bolt R-Spec

Building on the successful Star 950 platform, the new-for-2014 Bolt is Star’s entrance into the bobber arena.

Compact and low to the ground, the slightly oversquare motor is tuned for low- and mid-range torque for strong acceleration in-town.

Inside, the motor has forged aluminum pistons, four valves per cylinder, and a rubber-damped clutch. A round LED taillight gives the back end of the bike a distinctive appearance.

The R-Spec version shown, which costs $300 more than the standard, gets twin piggyback shocks, suede-style seat with colored stitching, and R-Spec paint and graphics.
