When it comes to motorbiking accessories and awesomeness, Velomacchi are a brand that are on the radar of most biking enthusiasts so when they recently announced a collaboration with Yamaha for the Rural Racer XSR700 Motorbike, it’s fair to say excitement was pretty high about the quality of the finished product. Needless to say, from what we’ve seen so far here at Coolector HQ, it definitely doesn’t disappoint.
The Velomacchi x Yamaha Rural Racer XSR700 Motorbike is a concept designed which is being displayed at the Handbuilt Show in Austin, TX. The custom XSR700 Motorbike has been designed and built by Velomacchi in collaboration with Yamaha Motors, DJI Drones, Yoshimura, Champion, and Race Tech and it does a fine job of showcasing their state-of-the-art technology and performance with a distinct flavour of vintage American garage-grown heritage – so, basically, the best of both worlds.
Marvellous Motoring Performance
Everywhere you look with the Velomacchi x Yamaha Rural Racer XSR700 Motorbike you’ll see mind-blowing features that will make it appeal to motorcycling and technology loving men the world over. This amazing machine has been fully customised and includes both front and rear Race Tech suspension, a Yoshimura exhaust, and DJI drone technology that adds a whole new technology vibe to proceedings that we’re loving here at The Coolector.
Taking its design inspiration from the riding environment in the pacific Northwest, the Velomacchi x Yamaha Rural Racer XSR700 Motorbike celebrates backroad adventure, rural exploration, and speed. Crafted around Yamaha’s legendary 689cc cross plane parallel twin engine, known for smooth and consistent power delivery, uncompromising torque and rapid acceleration, this bike boasts a Yoshimura R&D exhaust with a newly designed catalytic converter which is more powerful, more lightweight and, most importantly, environmentally compliant in all 50-states of the USA.
It’s the technological components which really set this amazing steed apart from the competition and it boasts drone technology from leading drone pedlars, DJI, and this includes a drone mount on the fuel tank for rapid overhead deployment to capture your off-roading adventures. The idea behind the drone is to help in look for the best camping spots, analysis of your riding stance, and finding riding buddies. The DJI Mavic Pro has a compact airframe, carries a 4K HD video camera, weighs in at 1.62 pounds, has an 8-mile range, and a max speed of 40 MPH.
First Class Specifications
As you would expect from two leading names in the world of motorbiking, there are a lot of stand out features to the make up of this machine and the Velomacchi x Yamaha Rural Racer XSR700 Motorbike comes with Desert Racing Headlamp with modified lo/hi Beam, custom Italian wheels with patented tubeless construction, G3-S Custom Rear Shocks by Race Tech and custom leather 3/4 seat with hand cut letters.
Whilst this bike is currently commercially available, such is its aesthetic appeal and technological capabilities, we’re sure we’re not the only ones with our fingers crossed that it makes it to market here at Coolector HQ. A great collaboration project between Yamaha and Velomacchi and undoubtedly one of the coolest bikes you’re likely to encounter anywhere in 2018 and beyond.
