Epitomising the cool cafe style that has been popular across the globe since the 1960s, the Bolt C-Spec features retro styling with original Star V-twin performance. Riders will be transported to the roots of motorcycling as they re-discover the joy of riding a unique looking custom bike with the pulse and feeling that only an air-cooled V-twin can provide.
Unique Bolt C-Spec features include clip-on handlebars, traditional fork gaiters, sport cafe paint and graphics to tie it all together. In addition the footpegs have been moved rearwards to offer a more aggressive riding position. Piggyback ‘R-Spec’ shocks are fitted as standard for a plush ride.
Taking its name and inspiration from Yamaha’s iconic 1970s XS1, this stunning new model grabs the high torque three cylinder motor and agility of the MT-09 and gives in a whole new twist. The character and mind expanding performance of the 09 is retained in a stylish package that oozes timeless authenticity.
The 847cc 3-cylinder engine is equipped with a traction control system and an assist and slipper clutch to enhance the slightly more upright and refined riding experience. Yet the ‘R’ in the model name is there to highlight the link to Yamaha’s sport bike heritage. Which means that instant torque and agile handling not only makes urban riding fun but builds anticipation for those Sunday morning blasts.
Retro – meet modern. XSR700 matches future tech with retro style for an entertaining ride with attitude to burn. With deep torque and a super agile chassis, it’s for those who appreciate heritage without the hassle.
The cutting edge 655cc inline twin engine features our crossplane philosophy that delivers linear torque for outstanding acceleration. The retro styled XSR700 also benefits from a tight and lightweight chassis for agility and sharp handling.
This 655cc model is unique to Australia with power delivery specially maximised for our LAMs market. The 270-degree crank gives a strong feeling of acceleration and great traction, and the deep linear torque ensures outstanding performance. Wave disc brakes with ABS as standard and a lightweight digital LCD dash are fully modern but styling is pure retro.
XSR700 – tomorrow’s technology, yesterday.
When we launched the original Yamaha SR nearly 40 years ago it became a favourite with riders who favour simplicity and agility. After all, the big single is the grand daddy of motorcycles.
The level of interest in the timeless SR has remained strong over the years – with riders as well as custom builders. Offering endless possibilities, Yamaha’s SR400 continues to form part of the daily lives of a whole new generation of riders who appreciate the enduring appeal of this instant classic.
