Yard Built XJR1300 ‘CS-06 Dissident’ by it roCkS!bikes

Top 5 Yamaha XJR1300 builds

It’s Wednesday – so it’s time for a new post. Let’s make another compilation. There are so many nice bikes to show. But I just figured that I didn’t post any Top 5 Yamaha XJR list yet. Strange since it’s my kind of motorcycle… retro muscle, street bruiser.

So here You go, below is the list of Top 5 Yamaha XJR based builds.

1. XJR1300 Yard Built by Iron Heart

Quite recently featured on this blog. It’s an example of ABC cafe racer build – focusing on style, some unique touch from a clothing company. Less performance and construction changes.

2. Yamaha XJR1300 “Ronin” from Motorrad Klein

Featured also here last year. Beautiful build with serious performance upgrades in place (USD forks, air intake and exhaust, single side swing arm)… It’s a beast.

3. Yard Built XJR1300 ‘CS-06 Dissident’ by it roCkS!bikes

And another Yard Built project. Style and performance. Cool fairing, very contemporary paint job, and some serious customization took place to create this mono tank-seat piece.

4. Yamaha XJR1300 flat tracker for Valentino Rossi

…built and designed by the folks from the VR46 Riders Academy together with master designer, Rodolfo Frascoli. Valentino Rossi is a legend that needs no introduction. Not everybody knows that he has a race track on his property… and it’s not all tarmac. So what better gift can You get from Your team? A Yamaha modified to be a flat tracker…

5. XJR1300 Guerilla Four by Rough Crafts

Dark, metal terror. Fat tires. Different from other builds. The mix of dark, on black, on matte is properly scary.

Taiwanese builder Winston Yeh joins the Yard Built family with breath taking take on the iconic street bruiser, creating an even tougher, meaner, stripped back machine.

PS. It’s not a best to the worst list – the purpose of this post is to show few most good looking takes on modifying this iconic classic. All numbers are equal… and 3 of them are from Yard Built program. 4 of them have spoked wheels 🙂
