The motorcycle has been completely customized, passing through carefull technical inspection.

The motorcycle is ready to ride, registered with valid Polish technical inspection. The Yamaha XS 400, manufactured between 1976 and 1982, is considered one of the most reliable motorcycles on the market. It is simple, affordable and easy to use on a daily basis. It is extremaly manoeuvrable, stable and dynamic. The XS400 is powered by a four-stroke, air-cooled, overhead-cam straight-twin engine with a 180° crank angle, which reduces linear vibration at the cost of some axial vibration. The 392 cc engine produces 36 at 8100 rpm. The motorcycle springs 6-speed transmission, wet plate, 6 friction disk clutch, chain drive, tachometer, self-canceling turn signals, both electric and kick starters, adjustable rear shock absorbers, center stand, and an automatic fuel petcock. The alternator, located behind the cylinder block, allowed the designers to maintain the narrow silhouette of the motorcycle to favour short riders. Brat style is an internationally imitated, cult language of design that has its roots in the Tokyo based custom shop owned by Go Takamine. The primary donor base for simple or even harsh motorcycles are small body Yamaha models XS400, XS650 and SR400 manufactured in 70-ties and early 80-ties. Brat style represent raw, minimalist design, slightly shortened frame, reduced to the minimum silencers, a low-lying, thin one-seater couch, thick tyres and a flat steering bar. The lack of chromium and often primitive painting of a tank only adds the harshness.
