Yamaha XV950 Bolt Review

At a glance, the Yamaha XV950 Bolt is an attention grabber from tail to head offering so many ways for customization. Its generous fuel tank can last within 100 miles with an estimated high speed of 120 mph however since this motorcycle is best used in cruising top speed is not disappointing at all. The engine delivers power smoothly, no vibrations felt, gear shifting is fine and its clutch is definitely made for urban navigation. Brakes are not available on the standard model but its absence is not even noticeable. The instrumentation is simple and easy to understand while the ignition key is situated below the fuel tank and its tear drop tank contributes to its retro look and feel. Its an overall compact, powerful and gives freedom when it comes to customizing. Despite of being called as a bobber, the Bolt has low, upper right seating position and provides extra space to knee bend when cornering. We were surprised on how easy it is to ride the Bolt, handling is comfortable and steers better. After a long ride, we are impressed on how this motorcycle performs. Its attractive, fairly priced, comfortable and offers relaxed city cruising.
