Timeless authenticity reborn
As an iconic motor cycle manufacturer, Yamaha know that motor cycles are far more than a means of transport. For most riders – they’re a lifestyle! Featured in the Yamaha Autumn 2016 Lifestyle brochure is the stunning new Yamaha XSR 900 from the sports range collection.
The XSR 900 has a nod to the iconic Yamaha XS1 from the 1970s in both its name and in the inspiration which brought this great bike to being while the ‘R’ pays homage to its sports bike heritage.
Pure, Timeless Design
The Yamaha XSR 900 has a design which is essentially timeless and reminiscent of bikes of eras past, but which is totally contemporary in appeal and performance. This stylish new package is based on the MT-09 3 cylinder motor but with its own persona. A more upmarket version and more comprehensive overall package.
As you would expect from Yamaha, the 4 stroke liquid-cooled motor incorporates a number of the latest technology features available in the motor cycle world.
The Crossplane concept engine is a powerful 3 cylinder, 850 cc which is equipped with traction control system as well as an assist and slipper clutch which well suits the refined, more upright riding position and provides agile handling and instant torque.
The Traction Control System can be adjusted to riding conditions, across three performance modes with a choice of minimal intervention, maximum intervention or system OFF when required. The system defaults to the ON status at start-up.
The Yamaha D-MODE selection system adds to the total control factor by allowing the rider to switch engine characteristics to suite the ride – sharp response or a more mild setting to suit the more challenging roads. The ride is even more enhanced with the ergonomic riding position.
Specs and Features
The Yamaha XSR 900 is compact and light and a great value package as standard. Features include steel diamond frame, six speed transmission, 25 degree rake, hand-polished aluminium details, 298mm floating front discs, radial-mounted calipers and a 14 litre fuel tank, which has stylish aluminium covers. A split level stitched seat set at 830mm, aluminium fenders both front and rear, matching side covers also in aluminium coordinate magnificently with the aluminium headlight stay.
The biggest dilemma is which colour to choose? The amazing muted steel blues of Rock Slate or the stand out style of the Garage Metal.
The Yamaha XSR 900 is winning fans for its comprehensive package and for paying homage to timeless greats. If motor cycles are a lifestyle for you then the Yamaha XSR 900 might be the choice for you.
Great price, great package, great performance from an iconic proven manufacturer.
