Portuguese builders Osvaldo and Alexandre from roCKs!bikes designed and built the bike. Like all Yard Built bikes, the Yamaha XJR1300 was modified without any cutting or welding in an effort to further prove the capacity of ‘plug and play’ enhancement solutions.

The Dissident is made from a handcrafted metal which flows in one unit, stretching from behind the triple clamps to the tail. The suspension was modified to fit the XJR1300 steering column. The 17-inch wheels are made from tubeless Kineo spoked rims, with Pirelli Angel GT sport touring rubber tires. Above the tank sits an aluminum Monza-style gas cap and the handmade leather seat is placed in homage to classic café racer style bikes. The paint job features pearl white, black and gold colors, in line with the current trend towards stylish minimalism.
