2016 Start Bolt

Utilizing an 942cc air-cooled, 60-degree V-twin, the standard 2016 Star Bolt has plenty of power for getting around town, yet still capable of hanging in there on the freeway.

Steel fenders make it easy to chop the already-bobbed look, and the 3.2-gallon tank is practical for longer rides away from the gas station. Twin shocks give the Bolt an authentic appearance, as does the nicely shaped saddle. 298mm discs are used at both ends for braking, and are certainly adequate. New paint is the big change for 2016.
