Latest Yard Built Yamaha XSR700 is a Spanish scorcher

Published: 06 July 2016

Yamaha’s Yard Built platform returns just in time for summer with a Spanish take on the XSR700. 

Called Otokomae (Japanese for 'handsome man'), the mean street-tracker custom features a crazy one-off tank and Borrani rims. Built by David Gonzalez of Barcelona-based Ad Hoc Café Racers, the Otokomae also features parts from other Yamaha models, which include an MT-09 stem and handlebar set, front forks, disc brakes, brake master cylinder and clutch from the YZF-R6 and front light and bracket from the MT-01.

The original fuel tank remains, cleverly hidden by a custom shell built in four modular parts. The radiator was painted black to blend with the engine block and the air filter box has been removed and replaced with power filters to open up central space.

"I really like this crazy style David has created," commented Yamaha Motor Europe Marketing Coordinator Cristian Barelli. "The tough 'street tracker' feel really fits well with the XSR700 and the paint job is something totally unique. He made sure to follow our golden rule of no cutting or welding to the frame of the bike, so it really does prove with this build that you can customise your XSR to really stand out from the crowd without any major fabrication work. The custom detail is very well crafted without compromising the rideability of the XSR700, keeping the fun factor!"
