Neuga Motorcycles Explore the Possibilities of a Yamaha TR1

You wouldn’t expect a garage of BMX fanatics to necessarily come up with a custom motorcycle, but Budapest-based Neuga Motorcycles did just that with their Yamaha TR1 “981.” The bike started as a commission from Hungary’s best known interior designer, Peter Szendro, so you know that everything had to be spot on.

Neuga started the project by looking at the 75-degree V-twin engine. They completely refurbished it, swapping out parts and changing everything, including the rings, oil pump, cam chains, camshafts, gaskets, and o-rings. The cylinder head was also refurbished, and everything received a thorough polishing. Neuga didn’t stop with the engine. They also upgraded the frontend, adding in a Yamaha R1 setup with an extra 100mm on top. Neuga also used wider rims so that they could get beefier tires on the bike. The backend was redone, and a custom seat was added so that they lines of the gas tank could be continued.

The bike is a solid black, with the exception of the chrome on the engine and the gold of the front end and the chain. The conservative color scheme lends a menacing quality to the bike, making it an eye-catching and head-turning work of art.
