XJR "The Sports"


Yamaha XJR 1300 by The Sports Custom - Bangkok, Thailand



The XJR is one of the last big block -superbike style- motorcycle from the eighties to be still in production. Unfortunately, IMHO the last version sold by Yamaha in Europe has lost a lot of its classic charm. No problem, while the original model is still on sale in Japan, several custom versions sponsored by the Yamaha Company show us the way to keep this bike the Queen of Cool and builds like this one are the evidence.

La XJR è una delle ultime superbike anni Ottanta di grossa cilindrata ad essere ancora in produzione. Purtroppo, secondo me l'ultima versione venduta da Yamaha in Europa ha perso molto del suo fascino classico. Nessun problema, mentre il modello originale è ancora in vendita in Giappone, diverse realizzazioni custom sponsorizzate dalla casa stessa ci mostrano il modo per mantenere questa moto la Regina del Cool e moto come questa ne sono la prova.
