RAVEN / YAMAHA XS650
BEHAVE LIKE A RAVEN
2019 – The Yamaha XS650 has a perfect stance right out of the box. The frame is very simple, and we got a nice clean look after removing all brackets and holders.
THE MOST SOPHISTICATED MOTORCYCLE OF IT'S KIND
Even though the Yamaha XS650 is already a very good donor bike, we rebuilt and restored it from the ground up.
We fabricated a pair of matching bum stops and seats, and embedded a small LED taillight in each rear frame loop. Underneath the seats you’ll find custom-made electronics trays, with the batteries lurking further down, near the swing arm.
THE PAST DOESN'T EQUAL THE FUTURE
The Raven was completely rewired and now run Antigravity Lithium-ion batteries, with control units and keyless RFID ignitions from Motogadget.
FOCUS ON PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION
A few more subtle touches help refine the concepts. The Raven gets a nice black matte/shiny varnish, a black Alcantara seat, and black and silver finishes on its motor.
