Yamaha XV750 Virago Tracker

Yamaha Street Trackers

Yamaha continues to be one of the most popular makes for street tracker builds. Popular donors include the XS650, the Virago series, the single-cylinder SR250/400/500, the SX225 Scorpio so popular in Asian markets, and the long-running XT series of dual-sports. Builders have turned all of these and more into street trackers, many incorporating the company’s “speed block” racing livery.
