Yamaha introduces the new XSR 900

At Yamaha, XSR stands for retro bikes based on the naked bikes. There is e.B. an XSR 700 with the twin of the MT-07. And the MT-09 also has a retro sister: the XSR900. It is precisely this model that Yamaha has now renovated and made fit for the year 2022.
We already know the Euro-5 compliant CP3 engine with 889 cc displacement from the MT-09. A wonderful triple, which, according to our test impressions, goes forward much more strongly than the data sheet suggests. Yamaha sat on the new XSR 900:"As the ruler of the Sport Heritage category, the XSR900 is the ultimate embodiment of the Faster Sons philosophy. The high-performance motorcycle draws on the design of legendary Yamaha models and is the result of decades of intensive research and development."
