Another retro creation from Yamaha motorcycles(I covered the gorgeous SR400 in an earlier post). The Bolt a shit-cool piece of metal to rival the Harley 883-obviously Yamaha followed the success of the 883 for introducing riders to the Harley brand. These ‘customisable’ proper hogs are affordable, well built and make you feel a bit special when you throw the leg over(!).
The Bolt is within reach of learner riders or someone returning to the saddle after a pause. A variety of colours and specs are available depending on your tastes and how deep your pockets are. The entry level base spec version with an aftermarket exhaust is where my vote goes. Get those leathers out of storage and go take a test ride.
