Where form meets function

Debolex Engineering returns with its latest custom bike, a Yahama XJR 1300. Equipped with a bulky four-cylinder engine, the customizer took the build to the next level with aftermarket pieces like Kineo wheels, Akrapovic exhaust, ISR brakes, and a triple clamp by Performance Parts.

The tank stays original while the rear part of the bike gets almost exclusive treatment with a three-in-one solution customized for different purposes: riding alone, with a buddy or some luggage. A simple strap takes the seat from its base and allows for switching between the three configurations.

From the expansion tank of the Öhlins suspension to the powder-coated engine and the seat made of Alcantara, everything is kept in black. The brake line, spark plugs, and air filter serve as contrast with bright red accents. The wiring hides behind alloy parts while the battery was replaced by a lithium-ion version.
