Built by a Japanese customization specialist from the backstreets of Tokyo who prefers to shun the limelight and instead let his creations do the talking for him, the SR400 Boogie Single Racer epitomizes those crazy summer Sundays spent tearing around a secluded beach while competing in a sand race.
This is the first time that a model in Yamaha’s new Sport Heritage segment has been customized by a Japanese bike builder and therefore marks a return to very roots of the project. It was the thriving Japanese custom bike scene that provided the inspiration for Yamaha to launch the Sports Heritage concept and the B.S.R perfectly encapsulates this new segment’s spirit with its ‘less is more’ approach.
Focusing on simplicity and the overall flow of the bike’s lines, the B.S.R not only has an elegant yet purposeful silhouette, look closer and you will discover stunning attention to detail. The handcrafted petrol tank mirrors the flowing lines of the SR400’s tank, however its volume has been reduced to create the perfect overall visual impression of balance while accentuating the air-cooled single cylinder engine’s presence. Hand etched markings on the wheel rims, tank and oil tank cap identify the B.S.R as a truly unique project while classic touches such as the Ceriani forks and H-shaped vintage wheel rims make it stand out as a piece of moving art.
