Yamaha teamed up with ADHOC Café Racer to turn a XSR700 into what you see before you, a two wheeler called "XSR700 Otokomae".
This won’t be the first time this Barcelona Company is working with Yamaha on a project as they’re already known for their custom built XJ650 and XJ750.
Looking nothing like the original bike, the Otokomae is a sort of Frankenstein machine that was built with a variety of parts taken from other Yamaha models. After stripping the original machine, David Gonzalez designed this one of a kind two-wheeler to include the MT-09’s handlebars and riser, the YZF-R6’s forks, brakes, and clutch disc. Finally, the headlight bracket and reflector was taken from the discontinued MT-01. The radiator was painted black to match the engine block and the air filter was replaced with a smaller one to create more space in the frame’s center. What they did keep was the fuel tank which is covered by a custom made shell.
Not all of the modifications are so drastic, he did add in Gears Racing shock absorbers and Borrani wheels with Michelin Anakee 3 Tires. Those tires were designed to have long tread life, better balance and wet weather performance.
Maybe one of the forum members in Italy will see the Yard Built XSR700 roaming around on city streets.
