Yamaha Bolt 2014

It takes a lot of guts to go directly after one of the most iconic motorcycles ever built, the Harley Sportster, around since 1957. But that is exactly what Star did with its uber-hip Bolt. Power is from a 942cc, air-cooled, 60-degree V-twin with forged aluminum pistons and roller-type rocker arms. Induction is via EFI with 3-D mapping for optimal delivery and response. The double-cradle frame is topped by a low and friendly 27.2-inch-high saddle, while cast aluminum wheels in 19 inches front and 16 inches rear sizes are covered by real steel fenders. Also available: The Bolt R-Spec, shown, enjoys upgraded shocks and different color options.
