2018 Yamaha Bolt, 2018 Yamaha Bolt FORM AND FUNCTION FOR THE RIDE
The Bolt features compact, raw bobber design and a powerful 942cc V-Twin for a perfect union of old-school style and modern urban performance.
Features may include:
Modern Air-Cooled V-Twin
The 58 cubic inch (942cc) engine is an air-cooled SOHC 60° V-twin with four valves per cylinder, a pent-roof shaped combustion chamber, and 9.0:1 compression ratio. The engine is designed to provide excellent power and superior low-end torque.
Low Friction Internals
To keep friction loss to a minimum, increase durability and help the engine achieve the ideal performance characteristics, special roller-type rocker arms with needle bearings are used.
Advanced Cylinder Design
The pent-roof combustion chamber shape was precisely engineered to direct the fuel/air charge to the center of the piston for more efficient combustion and maximum power. Ceramic-composite plated cylinders provide excellent heat dissipation and reduced oil consumption.
A double-cradle frame enhances city riding enjoyment thanks to an engine mounted to the frame with a rigid mount system that provides precise handling.
Low Seat Height
The low-set seat is a mere 27.2 inches off the pavement, so most riders can easily put both feet firmly on the ground at a stop, as well as enjoy the great riding position the seat provides.
Bolt’s short, 61.8-inch wheelbase contributes to the bike’s great handling, providing precise, tight turns in city riding and solid handling on the open road.
LED rear taillight looks cool and adds to the modern bobber appeal.
Compact digital LCD meter assembly provides clean styling with excellent visibility.
Real Steel Fenders
Steel front and rear fenders are ideal for personalization, including paint and customization.
