We heard JvB-moto and Yamaha together for the first time when the man behind the firm JvB – Jens vom Brauck created the “Infrared” VMAX for Yamaha. Of course, before than JvB has been known for its astounding beauties like the “Flat Red 2” the “Ducati Pantah” and many more. Now Jens is back on board with Yamaha for his second project, for which the chosen platform is the very versatile Yamaha XSR700.
The motorcycle build by JvB-moto follows on the “Faster Son” concept created by Shinya Kimura of Chabbott Engineering and as all things go Yard Build, uses the stock frame of the motorcycle without any cutting. The end product is a stubby-looking machine that gets its appeal from the front-heavy appearance and minimal bodywork at the rear. The inset headlight and the round top-heavy tank gives the build a solid muscle.
The build goes by the name “Super 7” and it features most of its parts made in-house by JvB-moto. And since the part list is quite lengthy, there is some time before the go on sale for customers as bolt-on parts. The list includes LED indicators, headlight, speedo mouting (uses a Daytona speedo), side covers, seat, Arrow exhaust mounting, both mudguards, taillight and the number plate mounting. The JvB-moto XSR700 “Super 7” uses Ohlins shocks at the rear while the front forks which are stock units have been modified slightly for the build.
