Dubbed "...an exciting evolution of the Star brand," the all-new 2014 Bolt and Bolt R-Spec cruisers are powered by the fuel-injected, 942cc air-cooled V-Twin we're so familiar with thanks to its excellent starring role on the V Star 950. The engine may be fairly similar (at least internally), but Star took the opportunity to mount the 60? vee in an all-new double-cradle frame, dropped the seat height, slapped on some upgraded components and topped it all with a simple 3.2 gallon teardrop tank. The mechanicals were basically left exposed for all to see; there's very little bodywork here to muck up the lines. It's easy to buy Star's description of the Bolt and Bolt R-Spec as modern interpretations of old-school bobbers, but with an emphasis on performance. The company is hoping the new machines will attract a new cruiser buyer to the Star brand with its light weight, unmatched maneuverability and unique style. At $7990.00, they just might be on to something.
