Top Features:

  • NEW FOR 2015! 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 ultra-cool.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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:

  • The 58 cubic inch (942cc) engine is an air-cooled SOHC 60º 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • High-quality forged aluminum pistons have a lightweight, high strength, compact design that contributes to reduced vibration.
  • Sophisticated fuel injection is used on the Bolt R-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.

 
Chassis/Suspension:

  • Foot pegs that are moved up and back for a more aggressive riding posture. The repositioned handlebars and seat provide a sporty riding position.
  • Old school fork boots and longer forks and shocks are used to enhance styling and cornering lean angle.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Belt drive is stylish and extremely durable
  • 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.
  • 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:

  • Retro styled seat and removable passenger seat cowling.
  • Clip-on handlebars with sport-styled switch gear.
  • LED rear taillight looks cool and adds to the modern bobber appeal.
  • Steel front and rear fenders are ideal for personalization, including paint and customization.

Top Features:

  • NEW FOR 2015! Raider Bullet-Cowl offers a tougher look and excellent wind protection.
  • The Raider was inspired by the custom chopper movement, but since it’s a Star, it had to also handle, stop and go.
  • A 6-degree yoke angle—the first ever on a Star Motorcycle—makes it possible to achieve that custom raked-out look as well as neutral handling and straight-line cruisability: 33-degree rake plus 6 degrees yoke angle gives total rake of 39 degrees and 102mm of trail.
  • Custom 5-spoke wheels carry a 120/70-21-inch bias tire up front, and a wide, 210/40-18 radial out back—the tallest and widest ever on a Star.
  • Estimated 42 mpg* means this cruiser can go the distance between fill-ups.

 
Engine:

  • 113-cubic-inch (1854cc) air-cooled, OHV with 4 valves per cylinder, pushrod 48-degree V-twin pumps out max torque at just 2500 rpm and max power at 4500 rpm for powerful, relaxed cruising.
  • Four pushrod-activated valves and two spark plugs per cylinder provide optimum combustion efficiency along with classically beautiful engine architecture.
  • Ceramic-composite plated cylinders for superior heat dissipation with forged pistons cooled by oil jets. Provides outstanding reliability and longer engine life.
  • 9.5:1 compression ratio and aggressive cam timing increase power output across the board.
  • Computer-controlled, twin-bore fuel injection monitors multiple engine parameters to calculate perfect mixture under all conditions; wide-angle 12-hole fuel injectors provide excellent atomization.
  • A 3.5-liter airbox is hidden in the area below the fuel tank for great performance and clean styling.
  • Two-into-one-into-two exhaust with Exhaust Ultimate Power valve (EXUP®) inside boosts torque in the 2500-3500-rpm range.
  • Special custom-machining of the cooling fin edges gives a jewel-like appearance to the engine as light hits it from different angles.

 
Chassis/Suspension:

  • All-aluminum cast frame is light, rigid and tuned for light, athletic handling. A light, Controlled-Fill, aluminum swingarm casting complements the bike’s lithe style.
  • Low, sculpted seat holds the rider in place, and pullback bars reach back to enforce a casual, urban cruising style.
  • A 6-degree yoke angle—the first ever on a street-legal Star Motorcycle—makes it possible to achieve that custom look as well as neutral handling and straight-line cruisability: 33-degree rake plus 6 degrees yoke angle gives total rake of 39 degrees and 102mm of trail.
  • Custom 5-spoke wheels carry a 120/70-21-inch bias tire up front, and a wide, 210/40-18 radial out back—the tallest and widest ever on a Star.
  • 46mm fork tubes serve a sweet appearance and an excellent ride through 5.1 inches of wheel travel.
  • A tucked-out-of-sight single shock out back provides a smooth ride under varying loads.
  • Flangeless fuel tank carries a full 4.2 gallons of fuel.
  • Front brake master cylinder with integrated lever operates a pair of 298mm front discs squeezed by strong monoblock calipers for excellent power and feel, with a 310mm disc out back.
  • Strong, light and narrow belt final drive contains embedded carbon fiber for even greater strength.
  • Wiring harness uses super-slim wires for compactness and lighter weight, and switchgear wiring is routed inside the handlebar for a clean appearance.

 
Additional Features:

  • Left-thumb operated high-beam switch, and right-thumb activated accessory driving light switch for great visibility.
  • Jewel-like fit and finish, and Star quality paint, chrome and attention to detail are evident all over the Raider.
  • Cool, tank-mounted instrumentation complements the custom look, and contains analog speedometer and fuel gauge, along with twin digital tripmeters, odometer and self-diagnostics.
  • Bright multi-reflector headlight, LED taillight, and custom amber LED turn signals behind clear lenses give a custom look.
  • 02 sensor and three-way catalyst reduce emissions.

 

STRYKER BULLET COWL

 

2015, Star Motorcycles, here, first, learn, 2015, Bolt C-Spec, Raider Bullet Cowl, Stryker Bullet Cowl, information, Star Motorcycles, Las Vegas, Motorcycles, latestbikesinfo.com, simplyautos.com, 2014, 2013, 2012, bikes, Harley Davidson, KTM, Indian, Aprilla, bajaj, BMW, Ducati, Gilera, Honda, Kawasaki, KYMCO, Mountain bikes, E-bikes, Hero Motor, Husqvarna, Royal Enfield, Star, Suzuki, Triumph, Vextrix, Victory, Yamaha, Zero

 

Top Features:

  • NEW FOR 2015! Stryker Bullet Cowl offers a tougher look and excellent wind protection.
  • The look reinterprets classic custom “chopper” styling for an aggressive feel. High-end looks without the high-end price tag.
  • Gutsy 1304cc, fuel-injected liquid-cooled V-Twin engine churns out the inspired, big-engine feel riders will love.
  • Even with its radically raked out front end, Stryker has the superbly nimble and lightweight handling that choppers and mid-class competitors can only dream about.
  • Low seat height (26.4 inches) allows riders to put both feet on the ground and helps provide this bike’s natural, relaxed and comfortable riding position.
  • The wide 210-series rear tire and chopper-inspired 21-inch front wheel reinforce the muscular styling of the bike.
  • No cheap plastic fenders here—this authentic cruiser has real steel fenders customizers love. Classic belt drive, too.
  • Get started on your own customization with two trim packages in high-quality chrome, or an aggressive looking, blacked out package.
  • The Star® Accessories Catalog is packed full of high-quality parts that invite Star owners to fully express their individuality.

 

Engine:

  • 80-cubic-inch (1304cc) liquid-cooled, single overhead cam 60-degree V-twin with dual counterbalancers offers plenty of smooth performance.
  • Computer-controlled twin-barrel fuel injection provides optimal mixture whatever the temperature or altitude. Ignition and fuel-injection maps are optimized for Stryker’s performance character.
  • Four valves per cylinder (36mm intake, 32mm exhaust) provide optimum combustion efficiency; roller rocker arms reduce friction for better performance and reduced wear.
  • Ceramic-composite cylinder sleeves contain 100mm forged pistons for excellent durability and longevity.
  • 9.5:1 compression ratio and aggressive cam timing produce plenty of power across the board and a distinctive exhaust note.
  • Forged connecting rods ride a single crankpin for true V-twin sound and power.
  • Smooth-shifting transmission feeds power to an efficient, low maintenance belt drive.
  • Sly cooling system routes liquid through hidden hoses and internal engine passages for air-cooled looks and liquid-cooled performance.
  • Oil filter is easy to get to but also tucked nearly out of sight for clean, pure looks.
  • The exhaust system, designed specifically for Stryker, adds to the awesome look of this bike while also optimizing its engine performance—and it has a magnificent exhaust note.

 

Chassis/Suspension:

  • The 6° yoke and raked triple clamps combine to provide a total of 40° of fork rake. This achieves the aggressive raked out styling image and solid straight-line performance you’d expect, while at the same time providing light, nimble handling characteristics, even at low speeds.
  • Seat height is low, just 26.4 inches, letting the rider feel in rather than on the bike when riding, and enjoy having both feet planted firmly on the ground when stopped.
  • Steel fenders—rather than cheap plastic fenders found on some competitors—are one of this bike’s authentic cruiser features. Steel fenders are ideal for customizers who want to cut, chop or modify their bikes.
  • Cast wheels have low profile tires. A wide 210-series rear tire and 21-inch front wheel add to the aggressive attitude of the bike.
  • The relaxed riding position is complemented by the carefully chosen handlebar position, which puts the rider’s arms comfortably level with the horizon, with a “fists-punching-the-wind” attitude.
  • When Stryker is parked, it’s sure to draw attention. Precision details abound, like the slit pattern in the headlight and meter. The rear fender over the wide rear tire is richly sculpted. It’s clear that this is no run-of-the-mill cruiser.
  • Large 320mm front and 310mm rear discs provide serious stopping power.

 

Additional Features:

  • Aggressive, tough custom styling theme sets Stryker apart.
  • The beefy 1” handlebars connect right to the upper triple clamp for exceptionally clean looks.
  • Bright multi-reflector headlight, LED taillight, and custom amber LED turn signals behind clear lenses give a custom look.
  • Instrumentation includes a fuel meter for rider convenience.
