Yamaha Star Motorcycles the US sub brand for cruisers of the global motorcycle giant Yamaha, has just announced the Bolt, a 950cc V-Twin air cooled cruiser for the US. The Bolt will also be available in an R-spec version. The R-spec version gets a better looking paint job and other minor details. Both the cruisers will have many optional accessories that will enable buyers to customize the Bolt in many unique ways.
