Yamaha Scorpio | By Thrive Motorcycle

After working their magic on the stunning Yamaha XS650, Thrive Motorcycles are back again with an impressive and creative build, based on a 1984 Yamaha Scorpio. The unusual body is the result of a rough sketch drawn at the briefing with the client, it is made from aluminum to achieve the grey industrial look but to also save precious weight. The eccentric ride was also fitted with Kenda trial tyres, a custom clutch and brake lever, a custom dashboard with indicators and a GPS/phone mount, and some custom switch gear. They also covered the custom-made stainless steel exhaust with a grey exhaust wrap to match the overall look. via
