So this is what happens when you take a FZ-09 and give it a café racer look. The Japanese motorcycle maker has come up with XSR900 at the ongoing EICMA 2015. It is an instalment to root Yamaha’s “sport-heritage” line. XSR900 is sure to allure a large set of skinny jeans – beard crowd with its old school ‘XS’ inspired looks. The new XSR900 has been crafted by Roland Sands Design, and Yamaha has managed to equip it with a bunch of electronics to keep the modern relevance of the motorcycle.

Speaking of the features, Yamaha XSR900 is equipped with ABS, Adjustable suspension units, traction control and an advanced assist-and-slipper clutch unit (it reduces the lever pulling effort by 20% and also prevents rear wheel locking under rapid deceleration).

It propels a powerful 847cc Crossplane Crankshaft Concept, liquid-cooled, in-line 3-cylinder, DOHC, 4-valve-per-cylinder engine that is based on the FZ-09TM.

It will be made available in two different colours, including Matte Gray/Aluminum and 60th Anniversary Yellow.  The retro influenced body work, the stepped-up seat and exposed aluminium details reveals that XSR900 has drawn its inspiration from the “XS” series of motorcycles. The pricing of the XSR900 will be announced near the February end.
