The Yamaha SR500 from Vagabund Moto is a must-have in anyone’s motorcycle collection.It has the look and feel that a retro-minded minimalist will hold dear while sneaking in a touch of modern accouterments, such as the Motogadget Motoscope Mini digital gauge embedded in the modified RT350 fuel tank. For those of us who find beauty in simplicity and clean lines, this just may be the perfect bike.
In a word, Vagabund Moto’s updated Yamaha SR500 is sleek. It has the feel of a thoroughbred that has been perfected without the slightest hint of being over-engineered.

Sporting a completely redesigned rear frame, a K&N clamp-on air filter and a 3D-printed all-in-one light, horn and turn signal in the switchgear, this SR500 is replete with LSL handlebars and footrests and topped off with a beautiful stainless steel exhaust.
