Known for producing some of the finest bespoke bike projects in the world, Yamaha’s Yard Built program in recent years has been giving designers and builders specific themes to work under, with 2018’s being “Back To The Future,” in 2019 it was a vintage rally theme, and for 2020 the Tuning Fork Company announced its “Back To The Drawing Board” theme.

Instead of merely instituting a new theme for 2020, in early March Yamaha invited the public to submit designs based its XSR700 model, where the winning design would be turned into an actual custom bike — that will be brought to life by Parisian customs outfit, Bad Winners — that will be unveiled at this year’s Wheels & Waves festival in Biarritz. — alongside seven other Yard Built program customs. And after receiving a slew of submissions, Yamaha’s panel of judges have now selected a winner with France’s Barbara Custom Motorcycles taking the top prize for its two-wheeled render, entitled “Disruptive.” The design continues Barbara’s tradition of blending futuristic visual themes with aesthetic traits of yesteryear, in this case taking inspiration from Kenny Roberts-era GNC flat trackers, sporting a sleek, tank, side plates, and tail-section that puts a futuristic spin on traditional dirt oval racer bodywork.
