Motorcycle News - Yamaha Yard Built XSR700 by Workhorse Speed Shop
Brice Hennebert of Workhorse Speed Shop is the latest builder commissioned by Yamaha to create a Yard Built custom. Working with a Yamaha XSR700 as the base, Hennebert transformed it drag racing machine styled as a tribute to the FZR 750 OW74 raced by Christian Sarron in the 1985 Bol D’or.e
Some of the changes include a longer swingarm, , modified injection body, a carbon battery and a NOS system. The frame was lowered and, to free up room, the radiator was moved to the front face where the headlights would normally go, mimicking the OW74’s flat face.
The Workhorse Yard Built XSR700 won’t just be for show; Yamaha will enter it in the factory class in the 2018 Sultans of Sprint, a four-round custom drag racing series, with four guest racers, starting with Niccolo Canepa for the May 19-20 round in Italy.
