The Hookie Co Moto Design Company is passionate about building unique items.
For the yard built program, the Dresden-based company turned the XSR into a tracker.
The Grasshopper conversion by the eight-man team from Dresden is inspired by the straight lines of the MX bikes and the flat track area.
Accordingly, the conversion is rolling on 17-inch cast rims, which are fitted with roughly profiled MT60 tires from the Pirelli shelf.
Modifications to the frame or chassis were not made.
The tank was reshaped by hand from aluminum.
The rear light consists of orange fluorescent acrylic sheets.
The plates on the tank are also made of acrylic.
The on-board electronics are visibly hidden under the plates.
The aluminum front mask with LED headlights is only attached to the fork tubes.
Hanging rearview mirrors on the handlebars.
SC Project contributes the exhaust.
The bench is covered with waterproof Alcantara.
A mounting plate allows attachment to the original holding points.
Other features include Gilles levers and a Motogadget instrument.
Yamaha XSR 700 Grasshopper by Hookie Co
Custom twin with flat-track ambitions
The Hookie Co Moto Design Company is passionate about building unique items. For the yard built program, the Dresden-based company built a flat tracker from the XSR 700.
D.he Grasshopper conversion by the eight-man team from Dresden is inspired by the straight lines of the MX bikes and details from the flat track area. Accordingly, the conversion is rolling on 17-inch cast rims, which are fitted with roughly profiled MT60 tires from the Pirelli shelf. Modifications to the frame or chassis were not made.
Aluminum and acrylic
That’s why the XSR 700 focused on the optics. The new tank as well as the entire bench substructure were made by hand from aluminum. The seat cushion itself is covered with waterproof Alcantara. A mounting plate allows attachment to the original holding points. The front of the XSR 700 was completed with a hand-made aluminum lamp mask – the highlight is that this component is only pushed over the standpipes and does not require any screwing. A 7-inch LED round headlight was integrated.
The XSR 700 from Hookie Co Moto Design Company has mainly been optically revised.
The developers paid particular attention to the new rear light, which is made up of orange fluorescent acrylic sheets. The two cover plates on the tank, under which the on-board electronics are visibly housed, were made from the same material. The integrated turn signals also provide interior lighting for the panels. The conversion is rounded off with an exhaust system from SC Project and levers from Gilles, a Motogadget instrument and hanging rear-view mirrors.
