Yamaha XJR1300 Dissident

A dissident is “a person who opposes official policy, especially that of an authoritarian state.” So now we know the vibe Yamaha was going for when they named their new motorcycle from the Yard Built program the XJR1300 Dissident.

Created as part of the celebration of Yamaha’s XJR series, Portugal-based it roCKs!bikes took control of the design and build with just one rule: no cutting or welding. Designers Osvaldo Coutinho and Alexandre Santos used handcrafted metal airflow pipes, four of which flow from the engine through the tail. Other highlights include high-end YZF-R1 forks, an intricate ISR braking system with new cylinders and 340mm dual discs, 17-inch tubeless Kineo spoked rims covered with Pirelli Angel GT sport touring rubber, a handmade leather seat, a rich pearl/gold paint job, and an aluminum Monza-style gas cap.
