Yamaha XJR1300 Racer
New Yamaha XJR1300 Racer
Just as Keino’s Rhapsody in Blue inspired the new XJR1300, so the collaboration in 2013 with Deus Ex Machina on the beautiful XJR1300 Eau Rouge inspired the new XJR1300 Racer*. The all-new Yamaha XJR1300 Racer is a custom twist based on the all-new XJR1300 machine. The iconic street bruiser gets a genuine Café Racer look with a number of beautifully crafted additional parts to create a stunning retro styled machine to raise the pulse on the street.
Authentic Café Racer style
A cool carbon cowling and short carbon front fender pay homage to the iconic café racers of the seventies whilst period style clip-on handlebars are used to deliver the correct riding position. The beautiful and sporty styled solo-seat design is further enhanced with a carbon seat cover to complete the look. The riding position is more focused than the standard XJR giving a genuine Café race style with a narrower, more forward sportier feel.
The 2015 XJR Racer is an evolution of a classic. The 1300cc naked street machine on which it’s based stays true to its ‘Japanese Performance Classic’ origins with a functional, simple design and the largest displacement in line 4 air cooled engine on the market as its beating heart. The Racer is available in the full range of 2015 XJR colors.
The 2015 XJR Racer sits proudly in the sportiest side of the Sports Heritage Range, continuing Yamaha’s drive to deliver beautiful and emotional motorcycles that remain functional even in daily usage.
