The first custom builder to take up our challenge is Danish special builder Wrenchmonkees. “We have watched with interest Yamaha’s other projects such as the Hyper Modified VMAX and TMAX,” said Per Nielsen, Crew Chief at Wrenchmonkees. “Generally we work on older bikes and have modified Yamaha SR500s and XS650s, but it has been really nice to show what we can do to a modern machine such as the XJR1300.”
“With the XJR we were determined to showcase what you could do with the bike, how cool it could look with a café racer style. We really wanted to push the boat out and make something inspirational for XJR fans."
