This is my Suzuki GS850
Yamaha Europe sells the Sports Heritage Range which includes the XJR1300, the model is not sold in the USA. I think it's a mistake for Yamaha not to offer this model here. I think it would appeal to a large group of young and old riders that are into customizing motorcycles. The XJR1300’s slim racer-style fuel tank shows off the aggressive large displacement air-cooled muscular engine. I love the look of the XJR with it's black 4-2-1 exhaust.
Yamaha created the XJR1300 with the intention of having it customized by the owners. To help jump start the market for custom parts, Yamaha challenged custom builders from around the world to provide inspirational ideas on how to transform modern Yamaha models into what Yamaha calls ‘Yard Built specials.’ Each builder is then given the opportunity to produce and sell custom aftermarket kits to sell to Yamaha customers.
Various garages around the world took up the challenge and came up with wonderful takes on the XJR design. Below are some of the offerings.
