Yard Built XSR700 by JVB-Moto

Street scrambler style Yamaha from German builders JVB

Yamaha's Yard Built program has a way of taking the bikes that we don't get imported over here to the US and shoving gorgeous custom versions of them into our faces. It started with the XJR1300 and has now carried on to the incredible new XSR700. We don't mind seeing the awesome bikes, we will just keep complaining until they import the stock models to the US so that we can enjoy them as well.

Following the stunning concept 'Faster Son' created by Chabbott Engineering's Shinya Kimura this summer to launch the XSR700, Germany's JvB-moto is now the first custom builder to step up and deliver their take on the latest offering from the Sport Heritage range. The result, the 'Super 7' makes a bold statement, making it clear that the possibilities for customization and personalisation with the XSR700 are huge.

Without any cutting or welding to the frame, Jens worked to strip back the bike with the drive to expose the essence of the retro styled machine. The end result is a super clean motorcycle that reflects the lightweight, powerful and agile nature of the standard XSR700.

Many of the parts on the ‘Super 7’ were made in-house by JvB-moto and will be available shortly for XSR700 owners. These include the headlight, LED indicators and speedometer mounting which holds the Daytona speedo. The side covers and seat unit that give the bike its distinctive shape were all made by JvB-moto as well as the mounting for the Arrows exhaust. At the rear of the bike, the mudguard, taillight and number plate mounting are all made in-house as well as the front mudguard.

The ‘Super 7’ sits on Pirelli Dragon Supercorsa tyres for total grip with Öhlins shocks at the rear keeping everything under control. The front forks are stock items, modified for the custom build. Custom risers keep the LSL handlebars at the right height in front of the stunning fuel tank, normally anodized but now stripped to show the raw alloy There’s also a custom rear brake reservoir and polished regulator.

The stock footrests and mountings were modified and JvB-moto LED indicators set off the front end. To finish off the sides the engine covers and other small parts were sandblasted to give the finished effect.

Everything designed and built in-house by JvB-moto will be available shortly as bolt-on parts for the XSR700.
