Maria Motorcycles Yamaha XSR700

Our latest custom motorbike crush comes from a workshop in Lisbon - Portugal. Maria Riding Company is a brand inspired by the real emotions of the past, perfectly crafted into special rides for the last true essence seekers. They deliver extraordinary and unconventional rides, just like this beautiful Yamaha XSR700 conversion, an adventure bike with a scrambler treatment. The bike was commissioned by Yamaha’s incredibly successful Yard Built program (consists of renown customisers from around the world providing inspirational ideas on how to transform modern Yamaha models). The end result is a versatile tracker-style machine named "The Orbiter”,  a combination of the powerful 689cc engine with a lightweight frame, along with new front suspension, provides an easy-to-handle and responsive bike on unknown terrain and tracks. The look is inspired by the vehicles of space exploration and military technology and, with a touch of vintage motocross, results in an original and sporty look. Make sure you check out their website for more masterful creations.
