Custom Yamaha XSR 900 Monkeebeast unveiled

Custom-built Yamaha XSR 900 Monkeebeast joins the line up in Yamaha Yard Built Series.


If you haven’t realised it yet, we at BikesRepublic love modern bikes that’s been given a custom retro twist. Case in point is this, the Yamaha XSR 900 Monkeebeast built by Danish custom builders Wrenchmonkees.


This is the very latest addition into the Yamaha Yard Built series of custom bikes and it sees the venerable MT-09-based XSR 900 retro-styled bike transformed into a retro scrambler of sorts.


The folks at Wrenchmonkees were pretty detailed with their work at transforming this triple-cylinder retro into a scrambler. Highlights here include a set of Borrani 17-inch wheels with 9mm stainless spokes and black hubs wrapped in knobby Continental TKC tyres.


Also primed at the rear is a K-Tech Razor R rear shock, followed by a set of Gilles Tooling chain adjusters plus a TRW rear disc brake with steel braided brake lines. The seat is a bespoke one-off design made by Wrenchmonkees, which is matched by the modified Gilles Tooling rearsets that feature enduro footrests.


Up front, the XSR 900-based Monkeebeast gets a new Magura handlebar set equipped with a pair of Biltwell Renegade grips. The front brake was upgraded using a Nissin radial front brakemaster with steel braided brake lines. Adding a modern touch here are the Motogadget-sourced pushbuttons plus MT-03-styled headlight and LED taillight.


An SC Project exhaust kit mated to a modified MT-09 system ensures that the 850cc triple-cylinder mill has the right soundtrack to match its looks. Speaking of the latter, Wrenchmonkees also designed and built the bespoke aluminium rear fender, front fender, engine guard and tank covers.


Overall, this Wrenchmokees-built custom Yamaha XSR 900 Monkeebeast is one spectacular looking machine indeed. Despite being a one-off creation, some of the Monkeebeast’s custom parts will soon be available as aftermarket accessories that you can purchase directly from Wrenchmonkees.
