1982 Yamaha Virago 920
condition: like new
title status: clean
type: cafe racer
On the surface, a classic, custom rebuilt 1982 XV-920 Yamaha Virago cafe racer, but underneath, it’s all high-tech, German engineering, starting with the Motogadget M-unit blue which connects with your smartphone,via bluetooth for continuous dialogue and diagnostics, and to know what’s happening with the bike at all times.. All hardware, LED, and wirings are brand new, top of line, German-made by Motogadget, including the motoscope mini which displays all info (speedo/RPM/Odo/time) in digital, making for a sleek, uncluttered triple-tree/handlebars (see pic #2). The M-unit blue gives you many different options for alarm (very sensitive to silent mode), brake light, signals, and horns, allowing you to customize your preference (e.g., 3 blink, 5 blink, or continuous light).
There’s also the M-lock which is a keyless fob- no keys and you have to know where to place the fob to turn the bike on, for additional security. OR, you have the option of turning the bike on via your smartphone, simply by walking close enough to it (it will detect your phone in proximity). I’ve gotten quite a few reactions just by walking to my bike and it lights up without me doing a single thing!
Videos and many more pics available for serious inquiries.
This is an ONE of a kind bike that turns many heads and gets many comments, wherever I ride it.
Also comes with LOTS of spare parts, including a backup engine to cannibalize parts from (pic below), backup rear drive, backup TCMI.
Oil/lube changed at beginning of every riding season.
Selling for $10,000. I put a lot of time and money into this project and hate to part with it, but I have two other BMW projects I want to focus on.
