2014 Bolt by Star Motorcycles: Proud To Be Basic

The 2014 Bolt by Star Motorcycles ($8,000) isn’t here to wow you with audacious bling; it’s here to win you over with substance. Adopting the “less is more” philosophy, this simply stylish cruiser promises a dynamic ride with ample power and quick handling. The 58 cubic inch (942cc) engine is an air-cooled SOHC 60º V-twin with four valves per cylinder. The slim body, low seat design, and upright riding posture mean you’ll feel the wind and hear the engine, which — at least in the promo video — sounds just slightly less throaty than one Lisa Ann.
