I wanna like the bolt due to its air cooled mill and potential, but Yamaha is just missing the mark on that platform. They need to make a modern XS650 using the bolt platform to really check my boxes.

There is no retro made that holds to the design boundaries like the Bonnevilles. You can compare or attempt to all day long but the Triumphs are the real deal. Ducati tried but stopped production, the SR400 is not classic enough.

Or an xs900 or xjr900 with their new 900 triple. And i would to switch camps. With a standard center stand.
