The bolt has been around for about 6 months from its launch date. Even though it sounds like a good proposition the NEED for investing in such a device never came to the forefront. Tantamount to that, the split handlebar is a hindrance. The bolt predominantly is a handlebar device at the outset.

Bolt Red Streak – in the box

On a WhatsApp group the feasibility of  Bolt was questioned.  Hence, with a few phone calls and a visit to one of the dealers we were in possession of a box that is more befitting for a Coffee mug if not anything else. From fit to finish the package and its contents are a class apart and worth every cent of 1699/- shelled out.

The contents in the box housed:

  • Handle bar mount
  • Charger
  • User/warranty manual
  • 4 cable ties

 

Bolt Red Streak – Installation

Installing the bolt mount on the test subject is rather easy. Typically, the wiring lined is lined up from the handle bar of the motorcycle right down to the battery terminals. To review the ease of use, initially at every pit stop we played plug n play. Using the USB based internet dongle frequently is a good way to test it. The next task being, charging the action camera. It charges the battery quickly enough. Today staying connected on the go is the need of the hour. Thus

Bolt pocket

Also, as part of the package chosen the Bolt pocket is included. Since the luggage system included a tank bag on board the bolt pocket was not put to use. However, we can say that the pocket is indeed touch screen friendly.

Here is what the makers have to say about it:

Compatible With All Bikes:

The Bolt Pocket has adjustable straps which can be used to fix the unit across the fuel tank. The front straps have attached clips which makes it easy to fix.

Touch-Screen Friendly:

The top of the Bolt Pocket is made up of transparent touch-friendly material. So you can easily interact your mobile-phone for navigation and taking a call, even when the phone is within the Pocket.

Water Resistant:

The Pocket is designed to keep your phone safe from mild rains. It is closed from all the three sides and has a Velcro protection from top to prevent any water inflow.
