TUNING: YAMAHA XV950 by Marcus Walz

YAMAHA make a partnership with the German builder Marcus Walz, to make a custom bike from the YAMAHA XV950, so MARCUS make it happen with a really aggressive name “El Ratón Asesino”.

The result is pretty cool, he turned the cruiser from YAMAHA to a wonderful looking café racer, he modified the standard swing arm and he build a custom rear sub frame from scratch. Mini LED units are integrated into the rear frame in place of the standard tail-lights. A hand shaped fuel tank with Monza style filler cap was added at the front along with a custom designed headlamp cowling and a one-off custom tail unit topped with a hand stitched leather seat. The front fender is custom made in-house as is the bracket holding it.

The ride gets a full work over with the stock front-end suspension unit modified and lowered with prototype progressive springs whilst the rear gets fully adjustable Öhlins shocks.

The result is truly awesome, looking for more built like this.
