JvB-moto XSR900

German customising house JvB-moto recently turned their craft to Yamaha’s XSR 900 and came up with this special to showcase their aftermarket kit offerings that transform Yamaha’s triple-cylinder naked in to something a little more out of the ordinary.

This bike offers a tough stance and Jens vom Brauck explains his approach.

“The biggest retro influence is on the lines and proportions. I am a big fan of 70s and 80s concept cars and got a lot of inspiration for this build there. The bike has an understated, clean look and has more of a concept bike ‘feel’ than a typical custom bike.”

The bike was first presented at the 2019 Café Racer Festival where it received the Best of Show prize.

The CP3 captures perfectly the JvB-moto design philosophy of clean lines that enhance the stock bike as a base for easy customisation and breathe new life into it.

While the retro theme is in part an influence on the CP3, the design is inherently minimalist.

The dark blue Yamaha racing colour used was darkened further and made matt, highlighting the new bodywork whilst retaining the stock bike’s character.

Carbon-fibre wheel covers and Behringer front brake discs packing extra stopping power. Lightech footrests help reduce weight and give an assuring platform for the rider, with a new seat to accommodate the feel of the CP3.

Ultimately JvB-moto envisaged the CP3 as a reflection of the XSR900’s exciting 850cc 3-cyclinder engine, unchanged in the customisation, and designed the bike to look how the engine feels to ride. The Termignoni exhaust amplifies the emotive sound of the triple and provides a small boost in horsepower, completing the CP3 package that raises the very high standard of Yard Built specials even further.

Jens elaborated on this approach: “I wanted it to look fast without looking aggressive, for it to be less retro and more minimalist, with a reduced and purposeful design.”

Yamaha’s Sport Heritage range is made of state of the art technology machines with retro looks – the range is an easy access to real personalization and through collaborations with professionals like JvB-moto, the brand aims to bring this creativity even closer to the customer.

JvB-moto is now developing a kit to enable customers to either reproduce their own CP3 or just adapt parts of it, emphasizing that the bike is a perfect fit for the vision of the intrepid customiser looking to easily make their own set of customisations to the Yamaha XSR900.

There is also a range of parts yet to be developed. JvB-moto expect this bolt-on kit to be available to customers in early 2020, and will give them nearly unlimited options to tailor their own XSR900.
