Yamaha XV920R Aviator by Classified Moto

Classified Moto knows how to cater to custom requests. So when Florida pilot Camilo Saiz came to them and requested a low-riding XV with a single-sided swing arm, they know exactly how to hook it up. In fact, Saiz was the first ever to own a Classified Moto XV920R so it’s only appropriate that they named this one the Aviator.

Built off a 1982 Yamaha XV920R, the bike features a seat set as low as possible, per request, thanks to a hinged mono that tucks against the backbone of the bike and pivots to allow access to the bike’s Shorai Lithium Ion battery in the frame. They also installed a Benell-esque fuel tank with a bezeled brass stripe and the flush mount cap. The Aviator’s swing arm comes from a 2005 Ducati Multistrada 1000DS, as does the rear shock and wheel, and Classified Moto outfitted the bike with their own custom stainless exhaust as well. The front wheel and brakes come from a 2012 Yamaha YZF-R6 and that good-looking seat comes custom made and upholstered from the Richmond, VA local Roy Baird. One fine ride that’s for sure.
