Yamaha XSR700 “Double-Style” Yard Built by Rough Crafts

   

 The Yard Built Yamaha XSR700 that has two identities – a café racer style street machine, ‘The Corsa Scorcher’ and a dirt track ready scrambler style bike, ‘The Soil Scorpion’.


Here's what Yamaha has to say about the bike:

Lining up to kick-off 2017 in true custom style, Yamaha's Yard Built programme returns to the workshops of master Taiwanese builder Winston Yeh of Rough Crafts fame. Having set a high level of expectation following his impressive build of the XJR1300, The Guerilla Four, in 2015, Yamaha chose Rough Crafts for the first custom build of this year with the Sport Heritage range middleweight champion XSR700 as a base.

With no cutting or welding to the frame Winston was free to work his signature style magic on the punchy, mid-range XSR700. The result is not one, but two masterpieces. The simple-to-change kits transform the XSR700 in under an hour between a café racer style street machine, 'The Corsa Scorcher' and a dirt track ready scrambler style bike, 'The Soil Scorpion'.


"This is our first 'double-style' custom build from one machine," commented Yamaha Motor Europe Marketing Coordinator, Cristian Barelli. "The build really proves for me the versatility of the XSR700 as a base for customization. Whether you want to create a café racer, or a scrambler, this proves that you can do both, without losing the core soul and rideability of the original machine."
