Yamaha of Yesterday.
1981 XV920RH. Marketed as a sport-touring V-twin, the XV920R was an unusual motorcycle for Yamaha, in that it wasn’t technically a Virago because it didn’t match the Virago’s cruiser design language. The model nomenclature had an “R” suffix like Yamaha’s Seca line of sportbikes, but it wasn’t technically a Seca, either. The bike was sold in the U.S. for two years—1981 and 1982—and, in recent years, it has had a huge resurgence in popularity among custom bike builders who are drawn to the 920cc, four-stroke, offset-cylinder, 75° V-twin engine and the bike’s non-Virago chain-drive, which, in stock form, was fully enclosed in two sealed aluminum sprocket cases containing a liter of special lithium grease for extremely low maintenance. #YamahaofYesterday #ThrowbackThursday #tbt
