Hi everyone have recently bought my 2015 bolt or XV here in the uk , the bike is black with low miles .
Have not ridden it that much as the weather here in Scotland has started to turn nasty ,and very soon the roads will be covered in salt. Looking forward to learning more about this bike.

Just clocked 40000ks on my 2014 Bolt. It has been brilliant as a daily commute, (15km each way) cruising,  ( 100 -300 km) and touring (2 x 6000km trips on back roads and freeways). Been very reliable and economical with plenty of get up and go. I am sure you will have many years of comfortable easy riding. Enjoy!  😎

I definitely have the advantage in 🇦🇺, (except for the nazi regime we are living under with the onset of covid) with the weather. Here is the commuter set up.😎

Hi, yes it is all oem from yamaha. There are several brass trimmings on the bike (hand grip ends, foot peg ends, bezel around headlight and instrument display). Mustang seat.
The exhaust and air filter are Vance and Hynes with a bespoke air filter cover for crap weather riding/touring. The day I got it home it looked like below. Liked it but prefer it now.😎

Yes a cool bike before and after,unfortunately in this country there are not many parts available,there are some in Europe ,but after Brexit there are tax and custom duties to pay which makes things too expensive.
Oh well will just have to keep my eye on Fleabay ;D ;D Cheers for now.
