'El Ratón Asesino' Yamaha Yard Built XV950 by Walz Hardcore Cycles and WalzWerk-Racing
Legendary German custom bike builder Marcus Walz and Yamaha have collaborated to create a stunning new Yard Built concept with the Yamaha XV950. The result, ‘El Ratón Asesino’ sets a new standard for detail as Walz delivers a killer Café Racer in iconic Yamaha livery. ‘El Ratón Asesino’ is an understated masterpiece with a super clean design and build.
Walz transformed the rear end of the XV950 with a modified swing arm and custom rear sub frame A custom fuel tank, headlamp cowling and tail unit are topped off with a hand stitched leather seat.
Further changes include modified and lowered front shocks and fully adjustable Öhlins at the rear. Marvic hand-cast magnesium wheels and custom rear sets give a sportier ride. The café racer look continues with LSL clip-on bars holding a quick throttle system, custom switchgear, LSL master cylinder and LSL adjustable clutch and brake levers all topped off with custom bar-ends. Sitting in the middle of the action is a Moto Gadget ‘Tiny’ tachometer.
