Yamaha’s latest v-twin cruiser will be available for sale only in the Japanese market.
Yamaha has unveiled the latest 2021 Yamaha Bolt R-Spec, offered in a single trim level, and intended for sale in the Japanese market. The Yamaha Bolt on its own isn’t a whole new name, and the first Bolt was introduced in 2013 as a 2014 model, primarily for the US market. And even in 2013 it had the R-Spec variant, with reservoir shocks. The new Yamaha Bolt R-Spec 2021 comes with alloy rims only, with a premium brushed metallic finish on the 19-inch front and 16-inch rear wheel combination.

The Bolt R-Spec is powered by an air-cooled 941cc V-twin capable of delivering 54bhp at 5500rpm and 80Nm of peak torque at 3000rpm. The transmission is through a five-speed gearbox and a final belt transmission. The R-Spec also gets dual-reservoir shocks, tubeless tires, a 41mm telescopic front fork, and a dual-cradle frame. Curb weight is on the higher side, at 252kg, and stopping power is provided by 282mm petal disc brakes front and rear with dual-channel ABS.

As mentioned earlier, the new Yamaha Bolt R-Spec will not be shipped overseas and will only be offered for sale in Japan. The bike is available in two color options, either black or a beautiful grayish blue metallic. Right now it’s priced at 10.45,000 Japanese Yen (just over ₹ 7 lakh at current exchange rates), but it’s unlikely to ever be introduced in India. The original Yamaha Bolt was offered for sale in both the United States and Europe.
