Deus AU Builds A Yamaha-Approved Moto Suitable For The Swank Rally

Mar 23, 2020

In 2016, Deus Ex Machina (Italy) held its inaugural Swank Rally event, an off-road enduro competition and a celebration of off-road-focused custom motorcycles, with a focus on vintage machinery. In the years that have followed, the event has massively grown in popularity, and in anticipation of many of the Swanky Rally events, Deus has churned out a custom to showcase, the latest of which is the “The Extreme 250” by Deus’s Camperdown, Australia location.

The monicker stems from the custom’s donor: a Yamaha XT250, an air-cooled four-stroke, quarter-liter dual-sport model that was first released in 1980 and still made to this day (and famously ridden by John Rambo in 1982’s First Blood). Now riding on a powder-coated 19” front and 18” rear hoop shod in Dunlop K180 rubber, the bespoke XT features a custom stainless exhaust system culminating in an SC Project can, top-shelf Kellerman LED lighting throughout, Renthal bars, a custom billet top triple, one-off MX-style seat, and new bodywork with an Acerbis supermoto fender and headlight shroud, and Deus’ own fiberglass tracker tail section — all of which is adorned in a custom livery. Despite having just been completed, the Xtreme 250 is currently for sale, with interested parties directed to contact using info in the link below.
