Yamaha XJR 1300 doesn’t need any special introduction. It’s a legendary muscle bike. My favourite class of motorcycles. It’s a complete and perfect naked machine when it’s stock. But Yamaha is very active to promote customizations of their machines. They have a “Yamaha Yard Build” program…which resulted in many amazing customs from all over the world. And this particular XJR was modified to be a cafe racer by Motorrad Klein from Germany.
And the mods are the real deal!
It’s not only clip-ons and seat cover. It’s a real performance bike. The biggest change is the switch to mono-shock from stock twin shocks at the rear. And of course – You cannot overlook the stunning spoke wheels with nice, meaty tires…. and a single side swing arm… USD front forks. Minimalist Motogadget speedo and a nice retro/modern headlight.
Everything finished with a characteristic Yamaha blue stripe paint-job.
It kind of is my dream bike. You cannot do better than this.
