Café Racer Style

The Bolt C-Spec features minimalist design, café racer styling, sporty clip on handlebars and slim solo seat.

Top Features
  • Stand Out Café Racer Look: The Bolt® C-Spec epitomizes the cool “Café” style popular across the globe since the 1960’s. Bolt C-spec features café styling with original Star V-twin performance and includes clip-on handlebars, traditional fork boots, a removable passenger seat cowl, and sporty café paint and graphics that makes the Bolt C-Spec ultracool.
  • Stylish, Narrow Chassis: The compact chassis proudly showcases the enormously popular 58 cubic inch (942cc), air-cooled, 60° V-twin Bolt powerplant that has been a huge hit on the showroom.
  • High-Tech Engine: The Bolt C-Spec uses modern technology to create a riding experience superior to other similarly sized machines. Fuel injection and ignition timing maps have been set to deliver class-leading performance with strong low- and mid-range torque sure to bring a smile to every rider’s face.
  • Clean Belt Drive: A belt drive is used to deliver power to the back wheel resulting in an almost maintenance free final drive system that is both durable and reliable.
  • Ready to Customize: Designers and fabricators will love the real steel fenders and belt design as they take the Bolt C-spec and fulfill the Star mantra of “we build it, you make it your own.®”
Engine Features
  • Modern Air-Cooled V-Twin: The 58 cubic inch (942cc) engine is an air-cooled SOHC 60° V-twin with four valves per cylinder, a pent-roof-shaped combustion chamber, and 9.0:1 compression ratio. The engine is designed to provide excellent power and superior low-end torque.
  • Low Friction Internals: To keep friction loss to a minimum and help the engine achieve the ideal performance characteristics, special roller-type rocker arms with needle bearings are used. These also reduce top-end weight for excellent mass centralization.
  • Advanced Cylinder Design: The combustion chamber shape was precisely engineered to direct the fuel/air charge to the center of the piston for more efficient combustion and maximum power. Ceramic-composite plated cylinders provide excellent heat dissipation and reduced oil consumption.
  • Lightweight Performance Pistons: High-quality forged aluminum pistons have a lightweight, high strength, compact design that contributes to reduced vibration.
  • Fuel Injection: Sophisticated twin bore fuel injection is used on the Bolt C-Spec to deliver the best urban riding fun with strong acceleration. 3D maps for ignition timing and fuel injection have been developed and these settings deliver outstanding acceleration in the mid and low-speed ranges.
  • Compact Air Cleaner: The stainless steel air cleaner cover provides a “raw metal” look that accentuates the Bolt C-Spec’s distinctive styling. And the air cleaner design provides great intake efficiency and enhanced torque characteristics.
  • Unique Bolt Exhaust System: A 2-into-1 exhaust pipe layout on the right side of the engine contributes to the lively performance and styling of the machine. The minimalist-style exhaust system delivers a throaty and pleasing exhaust note.
Chassis/Suspension Features
  • Sporty Café Racer Ergonomics: Foot pegs that are moved up and back for a more aggressive riding posture. The repositioned handlebars and seat provide a sporty riding position.
  • Taller Custom Suspension: Old school fork boots and longer forks and shocks are used to enhance styling and cornering lean angle.
  • Handling-Focused Frame: A double-cradle frame enhances city riding enjoyment. The engine is mounted to the frame as a stressed member with a rigid mount system that provides precise handling.
  • Advanced Suspension: The beefy front 41mm fork tubes offer excellent suspension performance and the twin rear shocks, which include piggyback style gas chambers, have been tuned to provide great comfort and handling while contributing to the machine’s low profile.
  • Low Maintenance Belt Drive: At just 21mm wide, the drive belt contributes to the slim and clean look of the rear end. The belt has a carbon-fiber core which adds strength and durability for longevity.
  • Low Seat Height: Low-set seat is a mere 30.1 inches off the pavement and allows the rider to get both feet on the ground during stops.
  • Powerful Braking: The 298mm front disc brake and 298mm rear disc brake both use wave rotors, the style usually found on sport bikes. The front brake uses a floating-mount for great heat-distortion resistance, contributing to excellent braking performance.
Additional Features
  • Solo Seat Look: Retro styled seat and removable passenger seat cowling.
  • Aggressive Clip-on Bars: Clip-on handlebars with sport-styled switch gear.
  • Modern Lighting: LED rear taillight looks cool and adds to the modern bobber appeal.
