Yamaha Motors has unveiled the 2020 Bolt cruiser motorcycle. The new (2020) Yamaha Bolt carries forward the same bobber-style retro-theme from its predecessors. The motorcycle is expected to go on sale in international markets by June 2020.
In terms of design, the 2020 Yamaha Bolt features a tear-drop shaped fuel tank, the motorcycle features minimal graphics with clean body panels. The Yamaha Bolt cruiser offers a low seat height of just 690mm, giving the riders a comfortable and relaxed riding position. Other features on the motorcycle include LED lighting all around, fully-digital instrument cluster, retro-styled turn indicators and position lights.
The 2020 Yamaha Bolt cruiser is offered in a range of two variants: Standard and R. The difference between the two variants is noticeable in the wheels and suspension setup. The Standard variant features spoke wheels while the ‘R’ variant gets cast alloy rims.The Yamaha Bolt R also comes with gold highlights on the suspension setup, giving it a sportier look; something the standard variant misses out on.
Both the ‘Standard’ and ‘R’ variants of the Yamaha Bolt cruiser are powered by the same engine. This comes in the form of a 942cc V-twin air-cooled engine producing 53bhp at 5500rpm and 80Nm of torque at 3000rpm, paired with a five-speed gearbox
