Yamaha MT-01 ‘Blue Falcon’ By Titan Motorcycles

One of the things that makes custom motorcycles so enticing is the freedom that comes with modifying a donor bike. It’s certainly possible to defy all convention and transform a bike from one thing into something that might seem like its polar opposite. Or at least that’s the case with this Yamaha MT-01 ‘Blue Falcon’ by Titan Motorcycles.

Once a performance-focused road-going streetfighter, this aggressively-styled bike has been turned into another beast entirely — one perhaps better equipped for an off-road blitz, rather than a 1/4 mile jaunt. A collaboration with motorcycle artist, Shenfu (AKA Thanh Ho Ngo), the modifications include some weight chopped off the tail, a shortened exhaust system, up-to-date LED lighting and a modern cockpit, a completely revamped leather seat (now with custom stitching) and body panels, and — of course — swapping out the road going tires for some knobby all-terrain ones. The ‘Blue Falcon’ is a beast, to be sure, but she’s most definitely a beautiful one.
