Yamaha XV920 by Ugly Motors

For most mortal beings, this idea of a big and powerful ’83 Yamaha Virago as a cafe racer would scare the daylights out of them. Not Jakub Beker from Poland-based Ugly Motors though. In fact, he took the challenge to heart when outfitting this XV920 Virago in his workshop.

And by the looks of it, you wouldn’t know this is his side gig either. But finish it he did, and with stellar results. Initially, he replaced the stock forks with a set of Kawasaki ZX12Rs and went ahead chopped up the subframe to his desire – leaving a custom and mean-looking rear end on the bike. A K&N filter was also mounted to the side of the engine, and the exhaust pipes on this thing are simply now a work of art. What’s left is an aggressive ride in both performance and appearance complemented by Ugly Motor’s industrial finesse. Not bad for a moonlight bike builder.
