For forward “pegs” I fitted the Yamaha engine guards that make a nice, simple highway foot rest. Trouble is you then need to move your feet back to the stock pegs for braking and shifting. Not the best for rapid response in an emergency situation.
My ideal Bolt for comfort (seat height plus foot peg location) and looks is the R-Spec with C-Spec seat. I particularly wanted the cast wheels with tubeless tires.
The local dealer is closing out a new 2015 C-Spec for $5,950 but it’s not cheap to “R-Spec-it” by changing out the bars and foot controls, as others are finding out here starting from the SCR base.
