Motoshop Tonouchi has done it again. After grabbing attention with their retro BMW-inspired Sportster custom, they’ve created one of the tastiest XS650-based bikes we’ve seen for a while. The ‘Heritage Special’ reprises the monochromatic look, with sleek, perfectly judged bodywork—note the lovely curved panels under the bobber seat. The frame modifications accentuate the chunky, 654cc parallel twin motor and the gently flared exhaust system adds a low-key elegance. Not surprisingly, Tonouchi’s latest XS650 has just been profiled in issue 4 of the Japanese metric custom magazine Another World of Chopper—and I’m prepared to bet it’ll start spreading fast on the interwebs soon.
