Yamaha Announces Star Bolt Café Prototype for 2013 Tokyo Motor ShowFri, 08 Nov 2013
While there are no plans to produce the Bolt Café, the concept was designed to show the potential of the Bolt as a platform for customization. The prototype sports the same 946cc V-Twin engine as the Bolt but adds a new exhaust. Other changes include the low café-style handlebars, under-mount bar end mirrors, fork gaiters, and a completely new tail with retro-styled leather seat.
Here’s what Yamaha has to say about its concept:
With the “BOLT’s” slim and compact chassis and 950cc air-cooled V-twin engine as a base, the “BOLT Café” is a prototype showing an example of how owners can customize the bike to their own tastes. The BOLT’s simplicity and high degree of freedom for many different styles of customization expands the boundaries of enjoyment to be found in garage modification.
