HLYM introduces Yamaha XV950 Bolt Café Racer priced from RM55,000 (basic price with GST).
Malaysian Yamaha motorcycles assemblers and distributors Hong leong Yamaha Motor Sdn Bhd (HLYM) expanded its big bike line up further with its recent introduction of the Yamaha XV950 Bolt Café Racer.
As the name suggests, it is essentially a café racer variant of the Yamaha XV950R Bolt cruiser model that was launched locally last year. The Yamaha XV950 Bolt Café Racer retains its base bike’s core mechanics such as the air-cooled 742cc V-twin mill along with the five-speed transmission belt-drive setup.
This café racer variant also sports various aesthetic differences over the standard bike. Most notable here being the single-seat design, a sportier handle set and positioning and, according to the flyer (above) HLYM issued, the iconic yellow and black Yamaha ‘Speeblock’ racing livery.
Offered as a fully imported (CBU) model, HLYM states that the new 2016 Yamaha XV950 Bolt Café Racer is now open for bookings and purchases via authorised dealers nationwide with a basic price tag of RM55,000 (with GST) sans insurance, registration and road tax costs.
