2016 Star Bolt R-Spec

Compact and low to the ground, the 2016 Star Bolt R-Spec’s 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 gets twin piggyback shocks, stainless-steel accented air filter cover, low seat, and R-Spec paint and graphics.
