Yamaha XS650 Special by Motor Rock

In our previous articles you have seen the magical work of Motor Rock. Each of their creations goes through an intense amount of fabrication work, finishing with mind boggling details.

What we really like about their work is that most of their bikes are around Japanese manufacturer’s and in some cases the same engine, yet they all look quite distinctive when compared to each other.

Today’s feature is a true pleasure for your eyes a ‘Yamaha XS650 Special’, another spectacular job from the Nagoya based custom fabricator. The base for this build was a Yamaha XS650 with 653cc, four-stroke, vertical twin powerplant.

Yamaha XS650 Special exhaustThe ‘Yamaha XS650 Special’ frame is one off sheet rail processing. The engine was rebuilt and assembled with KEIHIN Carburetor and K&N air filter and fitted with a one-off street tracker style exhaust system.

At the front ‘XS650 Special’ features 30mm low down front forks, one-off Motor Rock 69Bar bobber style handle bars raised with one-off Motor Rock antique handle clamp and Estrella genuine switches. At the rear the ‘XS650 Special’ features short suspension and one-off swing arm. Our personal favorite is the Estrella genuine custom fuel tank, sweet!

The fabrication work on this custom Yamaha XS650 Special  includes one off hand fabricated front and rear fender, sprocket cover, chain case and battery case all of which were produced at the Motor Rock workshop.

  1. An awesome bike! I've owned 4, XS650's, Starting with the XS650D. The only thing I would suggest on this bike is changing it's name. Yamaha already had the "XS650 Special" in the 80's. (I owned 2 of them).
