    That is one of many mods done just to show how versatile the Bolt is..
    Star motorcycles have been encouraging customizing aggressively both personal and professional builders..
    here is an eg. of a direct bolt on kit available, no modifying or cutting needed to the sub frame(good news for tinkerers like us!) hehe.. -

    It is everything I wanted for a bike. The torque is powerful and riding is smooth.
    I used to ride a TW200 and was worried that I can't lane split anymore with this bigger bike. Boy were I wrong

    The COE yesterday is a killer..this make me even eager to buy bolt now.

    But my one area of concern...v twin engine sohc 2 valve..not so "ideal" n powerful lasting engine type but the review is so gd that it even beat the Harley Sportster. However,it is air-cool. For big bike on long distance in Sg & Malaysia weather environment wont last very long. Im riding a phantom 200 now, even take so much care on the engine oil,heat ventilator,it only last me 3.5yrs max before one overhaul. One thing that prevent me for buying bolt.

    If i were to wait for Yamaha MT09 Tracer,by the time it roll into Sg,the COE could have reach maybe 7 or 8k.

    Very lost now...any bros can enlighten me?

    What ever bike you buy, facing the same COE.
    If money is not a concern, just buy what ever you like. STOP buy may help reduce future COE.

    i saw your bolt too...it looks like a Harley wannabe especially when you tried to cover the Yamaha logo. The slip on is great..just the right roar.

    The newer models comes with ABS I think. But my personal experience with bikes that with ABS were that I never really get to the point that I needed it. But of course... Having it is perhaps 'safer' than not for some situations.

    Seems the Bolt is not picking up pace in Sillypore. So far only saw one on the road along CTE many months ago.

    It's pitted against the hd 883 and looks like a hd 48. Somehow people prefer a hd rather than a hd lookalike

    That's the power of branding. But most if not all reviews I read favour the Bolt over the Iron 883. However I reckon if compared with the 1200 the HD will outshine in terms of power although the rest like sitting comfort and handling will still go to the Bolt.
