Bolt R-Spec 2020 Yamaha Sports Heritage Bike – Features and Price
The Main Function
Bolt R-Spec reflects the appearance of an “urban performance buoy” with minimal chromium peeling. The conservative undercarriage gladly shows a 58 cubic inch (942cc), air-cooled 60° V twin situated in the bike’s core. Bolt R-Spec uses Yamaha technology to create a ride experience superior to other similar-sized machines. Especially for this bicycle, fuel injection and ignition timing are selected to provide leading performance and powerful mid-to-low-range torque, which will surely make every rider’s face smile. The slim body and low-seat design make the motorcycle light and easy to maneuver, and has stable handling.
The upright riding position helps the rider feel the wind, hear the sound, and experience the machine’s pulsation. For drivers who value personalization, Bolt R-Spec options are only limited by the imagination of the owner. As an ideal canvas for customization, Bolt R-Spec is the ultimate example of customization. The new 3.4-gallon fuel tank, belt drive, front and rear wheels, digital gauges, and steel fenders are assembled in such a way that they create a unique appearance of Bolt R-Spec 2020 Yamaha Sports Heritage Bike in the Sport Heritage series.
The 58 cubic inches (942cc) motor is an air-cooled SOHC 60 V two-chamber motor with four valves for every chamber, and a rooftop molded burning chamber and a pressure proportion of 9.0:1. The engine is redesigned to provide excellent power and excellent low-end torque. Unique roller-type rocker arms with needle bearings minimize friction loss, increase durability, and help the engine achieve the desired performance characteristics.
The shape of the ceiling combustion chamber has been precisely designed to guide the fuel/air to the piston’s center to achieve more efficient combustion and maximum power. Ceramic-composite coating cylinder can provide excellent heat dissipation performance and reduce fuel consumption. The high-quality, forged aluminum piston has a lightweight, high-strength, and compact design that helps reduce vibration and improve durability. The two-in-one exhaust pipe layout on the right side of the engine enhances the performance and styling of the machine. The minimalist-style exhaust system emits a refreshing and pleasant exhaust sound.
Bolt R-Spec 2020 Yamaha Sports Heritage Bike uses advanced dual-hole fuel injection to provide the ultimate urban riding pleasure with strong acceleration. The 3D map of ignition timing and fuel injection provides excellent acceleration in the medium and low-speed range. The stainless-steel air filter cover has a “raw metal” appearance, highlighting the unique style of Bolt R-Spec. Also, the air filter design provides excellent intake efficiency and enhanced torque characteristics.
Chassis / Suspension
The double-cradle frame fixes the engine on the structure through a sturdy mounting system, which provides precise controllability and enhances the fun of riding in the city. The low seat is just 27.2 creeps from the walkway, so most riders can, without much of a stretch, park their feet solidly on the ground and appreciate the incredible riding stance gave by the seat. The Bolt R-Spec’s 61.8-inch short wheelbase brings excellent handling to this bike, providing precise, compact turns and firm handling on open roads during city riding.
The sturdy front 41mm front fork tube has excellent suspension performance. The dual rear shock absorbers have been optimized to provide exceptional comfort and handling while also helping to reduce the machine’s appearance. The drive belt is only 21mm wide, making the rear end slim and clean. The belt has a carbon-fiber core, which can increase strength and durability to extend its service life. 12-spoke cast alloy wheels provide strength and toughness. Bridgestone tubeless 100/90-19 size front tires and 150/80-16 size rear tires help provide excellent grip.
The 298mm front disc brake and the 298mm rear disc brake use wave rotors, common forms on sports bikes. The front brake adopts a floating mount with excellent thermal deformation resistance, superior braking performance. The new 3.4 gallons of the fuel tank is a traditional teardrop fuel tank, and its slim shape includes a flat top and sides and a flangeless design. Even a cleaner line can enhance the profile of the Bolt R-Spec.
Bolt R-Spec 2020 Yamaha Sports Heritage Bike features a compact digital LCD meter assembly that provides a clean appearance and excellent visibility. The LED rear lights look cool and add to modern floats’ appeal, while an all-new Steel front and rear fenders are very suitable for personalization, including painting and customization.
