Yes! It’s another Yamaha… But it’s not a Virago! And it’s quite a beautiful cafe racer.
And it’s the essence of what this blog is about. You can see that it’s not perfect. Not “like new”, but it was composed with good proportions and with cool accents. The suspension is pretty much stock. The exhaust is a little rusty, there is no fancy Ohlins piggyback shocks, no fork swap was made in the front, breaks are stock. The headlight is a regular, small, round accessory headlight. no fancy, custom-made LED and a carbon fairing…
But they all come together in perfect proportions. Plus You get the iconic Yamaha stripes and yellow 🙂 And I’d love to hear how is this Vance and Hines exhaust singing.
It’s simply a perfect example of a cafe racer build.
