The Yamaha Virago didn’t manage to impress many riders with its dull look, but this doesn’t mean that the bike doesn’t have a lot of potential if it meets the right tuner.
Therefore, after receiving a touch of magic from Classified Moto, the stock Yamaha Virago gained a totally fresh appearance and a more aggressive character.
The guys from Classified Moto don’t play when it comes to modifying bikes, so they went on and completely modified the motorcycle from the ground up.
The most important modifications include the aggressive rear end conversion and the Classified’s signature front-end swap.
It is also worthy of being mentioned that Virago’s DNA has received influences from some of its sportiest siblings. Therefore, the fork was borrowed from a 2009 Yamaha YZF R6-R (with a modified triple tree and upgraded bearings) while the rear suspension came from a 2008 YZF R6-S. Moreover, the front wheel was “stolen” from an R6-R while the rear one came from an R6-S.
There is also a Triumph Daytona adjustable shock, so in terms of on road performances the custom Yamaha XV920R has all it needs to deal great with anything you throw at it.
Other modifications include the chopped rear section of the subframe, a custom solo seat, a conical high-flow air filter and custom exhaust lines and silencers. The bike’s vital stats are now displayed on a single-piece multi-function digital gauge.
