Star Motorcycles has added to its pair of performance bobbers, the Bolt and Bolt R-Spec, with the 2015 Bolt C-Spec. However, when you have a model line that’s selling well, you don’t want to change it too much. So, Star massaged a little cafe racer into the Bolt’s attitude. While the power train remained the same, the pulled back bar was tossed and replaced with clip-ons. The pegs were moved 6 in. rearward, and the passenger accommodations are swapped for a sporty seat cowl. The front and rear suspensions were bumped in length a tad to gain some cornering clearance, resulting in a Bolt that likes to go around corners a little more than its older siblings.

    Or, you could get a nice 2004 Sporty and get a Ryca kit for it. For a lot less.

    Good review, but was it … ya know … fun? You guys should remember that’s it totally OK even in today’s hyper critical age to just give us your full-on subjective opinion. I can read the specs elsewhere. I want to hear your judgement. Heap it on. Enjoy. Why else do this?

    If more than half the video was going to be B-roll and not the “from-the-saddle review”, why didn’t you record the audio separately so we don’t have to listen to wind noise the whole time?
