$6955 usd currency - USA money ..... they list for $8,000 Bolt ($8,500 Bolt R-spec) - congrats on PRICE
seems the C-Spec CAFE Racer style is discontinued on BOLT (higher seat, different tail end, etc)
KOSO Speedometer has digital SPEED , which GEAR you are in , and RED Light when down to 1 gallon of Gas (it is Nice feature too)
Ebay  - $290 usd , Black Rim or Silver Rim , $365 at KOSO web page
be SAFE when we push it to Our Limits around the BEND - Corners on highway :)

Sadly it seems BOLT C-Spec is discontinued (there are a few PARTS unique on your BOLT , so make sure OEM Parts fit C-Spec
(example , the TOP CAP on the Brake Fluid is different - the CAP just to the Left of our Throttle Grip)

XSR 900 seems to be the replacement BIKE from Yamaha for a Cafe Racer raised seat design -
there web page lists it as 100 lbs lighter , smaller engine  but 12 valves , and $1000 usd more expensive

I actually nearly got a XSR900 but i used to have a 2014 MT09 so i went with the Bolt as i have never had a V Twin and i must say i do love the Bolt's Engine
