Yamaha XV950 review | First rides | Motorcyclenews.com

The new XV950 is the first example of what Yamaha calls its 'Sports Heritage' range. As well as retro styling aimed at attracting artistic custom builders the world over, these bikes are viewed by Yamaha as performance bobbers - able to outperform rivals. MCN visited Los Angeles to test the theory, and to find out just how capable the new XV950 really is.

Star (Yamaha) Bolt Test Ride
Quite a significant length test ride of the new Star Bolt and I found it to be a very comfortable and enjoyable bike to ride. Overall impression is that it is a very good bike, well made, well built, it feels like Yamaha have spent a lot of time getting this bike to where it is now. Positives: - Comfort - Rider position is very very comfortable, as well as the seat being very nice to sit on. - Clutch - so light and so smooth. It was so easy to use. - Power and Torque - a fair amount of it (not quite as much as the Bonneville) and very easy to use it. Plenty of low end torque makes for a smooth and easy ride on the streets. - Handling - good ground clearance and very smooth and stable around corners - Stability at high speed - even with a pretty strong head wind on this test ride the bike was rock solid. As I came over the hill a strong gust blew me around a bit but nowhere near as much as on the Kawasaki w800 or the Triumph Bonneville. Very stable bike. - Brakes - Although I had to grab the lever pretty hard to pull her up, the brakes definitely get the job done. Negatives: - Throttle - It seemed like when I was trying to maintain speed at 60-80 km/h the bike couldn't decide if it wanted the throttle on or off. Quite touchy. Despite my best efforts to keep the power smooth it wanted to alternate between acceleration and deceleration in a jerky, haphazard manner a lot of the time. This is the only big negative about the bike and I imagine it would get quite annoying. Maybe fuel mapping can be changed and improved for cruising use. - Transmission - was smooth but the gear changes were very loud. May change with more run in and an oil change (this bike was brand new - I put the 1st kilometres on it :-) ) - Rear suspension - the rear suspension on this model, the R, was quite firm. Apparently the base model has softer suspension with more travel, so could be more comfortable than the R spec model. Suspension travel is only 75mm or so I believe, so not much room for movement considering the condition of most Australian roads. - Vibration - but hey, it's a big V twin, of course it's going to vibrate a bit. Overall this bike was excellent to ride and I would own one. Comparing to the Kawasaki w800 and the Triumph Bonneville, I would consider the Bolt to be the best bike of the three. However, there is something about the w800 that I liked and I can't quite put my finger on it. It just had this fun charm that grabbed me. The Bolt is more stable at speed, corners better and has more power than the w800, but I think the w800 has more personality, looks better, has an even more comfortable seat and is easier to ride in the streets due to its impeccable fly-by-wire throttle setup, with a torque peak at 2,500rpm. The Bonneville's positioning meant a huge reach to the bars, had an awkward shifter and the seat was a lot harder than the other two, so it would definitely not be my choice of bike from these three. Thanks for watching :-)
