Yamaha celebrates 20 years of the XJR 1300 by showcasing a customized motorcycle!

The people over at Yamaha like to go crazy with their motorcycles once in a while, especially on occasions like when their motorcycles have an anniversary. It looks like they have been at it again, as Yamaha have recently revealed the ‘Big Bad Wolf’ which is a custom motorcycle which was commissioned by Yamaha to be built.


The Big Bad Wolf was built by a custom motorcycle builder based out of Spain. The Custom Build house, named ‘El Solitario’ built the bike for Yamaha who was looking for a crazy way to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the launch of its iconic naked Street Motorcycle, the XJR 1300. To build the Big Bad Wolf, the engineers and mechanics of El Solitario used a stock XJR 1300 as the base and kept adding modifications to it.

The Big Bad Wolf is definitely one of the most aggressive things on two wheels right now, and it seems like that was the aim of the builders in the first place. David Loner, of El Solitario stated that the ‘Big Bad Wolf is one of the gnarliest muscle motorcycles’ out there.


Yamaha held a press conference about the Big Bad Wolf and this just goes to show that Yamaha is very serious indeed, when it comes to these custom builds. At the press conference, Yamaha revealed that the Big Bad Wolf has been fitted with reshaped chambers and increased squish areas, the exhaust has been made by Ahasina Racing from Japan, all the bolts on the motorcycle have been replaced with ones made from Titanium and the power output is now claimed to be more powerful, with a maximum power output of 148 BHP.

TWM created the custom Aluminum fuel tank cap and Aluminum swing-arm was created by Over racing from Japan. The headlights were supplied by PIAA and the awesome quick shifter was supplied by Corona. Death Spray Custom has done the custom paintwork and graphics.


The Big Bad Wolf first broke cover at the Glemseck 101 show at Germany in September 2015, where it beat the previous champions at the 1/8th mile Dragstrip.
