Yard Built gets a MotoGP Legends build with Krugger Motorcycle

Over the last three years Yamaha’s Yard Built programme has gone from strength to strength, consistently working with the world’s top custom builders to deliver fresh takes on the Sport Heritage range of motorcycles. The latest collaboration, with Belgian builder Fred ‘Krugger’ Bertrand, takes it to a whole new level with a stunning layer of MotoGP history cleverly woven into the custom Yamaha SR400.

Having agreed to collaborate together with Yamaha on a Yard built project, Fred chose to take inspiration from close friend and fellow Belgian Bernard Ansiau, who just happens to be a MotoGP mechanic for arguably the greatest rider of all time, Valentino Rossi.

Whilst this role alone is enough to place Bernard as one of the most enviable mechanics alive, his CV is also littered with legends, having previously prepared the racing machines for Yamaha greats such as Wayne Rainey, Kenny Roberts, Randy Mamola and Norick Abe amongst others.

Fred and Bernard agreed to take the humble Yamaha SR400 as the base, and then bring alive the racing spirit of the 1970s in a tribute to the Yamaha TZ machines and also to mark Bernard’s career.

“This Yard Built really is a unique piece of art,” commented Yamaha Motor Europe Marketing Coordinator Cristian Barelli. “I think it’s impossible to have a custom that lives and breathes our racing history better than this. It’s such a beautiful bike and the longer and closer you look at it the more detail you find to enjoy. You wouldn’t normally associate the SR400 with MotoGP racing but this build is as genuine and authentic as its possible to get, a real Yard Built special!”
