While the title/category of this bike seems a bit off, I really don’t know where to put this. Alloy wheels with racing slicks, mono-shock suspension, a massive 1300 high-performance engine and an aggressive stance make this bike more look like a serious track weapon than a classic cafe racer. Last week I’ve published another Yamaha XJR1300 Cafe Racer, which is a completely different bike, based on the same donor. But let’s get over that issue and take a look at this awesome Yamaha XJR1300 built by Eak, owner of the Thai K-Speed. Regular readers may know K-Speed from this radical Suzuki SV650 Scrambler earlier this year.
Now Eak took the massive XJR1300 and took it to a fitness training. The bike lost a lot of weight and got nothing but high-end performance parts. Unfortunately just some photo’s, I hope to get some more specs soon. Luckily I was able to get a short video with the sound of this monster.
