Different Models

There are a few different variations on the Yamaha Bolt. All are based on the same engine and they have the same basic design as well as the same frame.

Variations between models #

The various stock models differ mostly between only a few aesthetic parts.

  • Types of shocks
  • Foot control position
  • Types of rims
  • Handlebar size
  • Seating position
  • Seat
  • Triple tree
  • Sub-frame for lifting seat and rear
  • Fairing cap
  • Engine cover, to look more “sporty”

Official versions #

  • Base model – 2014-2020
  • R-Spec (race, reduced weight, regular, not sure on the meaning of the R) – 2014-2020
  • C-Spec (cafe) – 2015-2016
  • SCR (scrambler) – 2017

Tank changes #

In 2018-current models the tank was changed to a flangeless design, likely inspired by the fact they put it on the 2017 SCR. This provides a cleaner look and an extra 0.2 gallons.

2021+ #

As of 2021 the base model bolt is no more. The only version of the bolt is the R-Spec. Meaning all bolts now come with canister shocks and cast wheels rather than spokes and standard shocks.

Regional variations #

A few countries sell variations on the parts and other details that come on the motorcycle.
