Thousands of custom motorcycle fans gathered at the Carreau du Temple in Paris today were given the first look at the latest creation to come from Yamaha’s ground breaking Yard Built project, the Wrenchmonkees XJR1300, ‘Skullmonkee’.

The 2015 Yamaha XJR1300 and XJR1300 Racer have drawn considerable attention in standard form already, with design updates inspired heavily by the custom world. A shortened and cleaned frame, narrower fuel tank and smaller headlight pay homage to recent custom creations and also show the potential for further customisation.
