The XSR900 is here for those who want to have the choice to either Rev or Relax. With its timeless design inspired by Yamaha’s legendary racing bikes, combined with the sheer muscle power from the high-tech CP3 EU5 engine, this is a bike that has it all.
Don’t be fooled by the timeless good looks of the XSR900, because underneath that 80s race bike look there’s some serious high-performance technology. Not only does it come with the smooth EU5 890cc CP3 engine with a ton of torque, but it’s also fitted with a lightweight Deltabox-style chassis with Brembo radial master cylinder, lightweight Spinforged wheels and fully adjustable suspension.
The XSR900 is proof of the Faster Sons philosophy in action. Taking its design inspiration from some of the most iconic bikes of Yamaha’s past, this high-performance motorcycle is the result of decades of intensive research and development.
Historic Yamaha Racing influenced design
The XSR900’s pure and purposeful design offers a unique blend of timeless sports styling combined with references to Yamaha’s legendary Deltabox-framed race bikes of the 1980s. Details like the gap between the café-style humped seat and racer-inspired fuel tank – as well as minimalist side panels and hidden rear lighting – underline its position as a true Faster Son.
High quality details and premium materials
The XSR900 is fitted with high quality materials throughout. From the superb cockpit detailing, drilled fork caps and forged aluminium foot controls through to the dual colour and dual stitched seat – as well as racer-inspired details like the quick release fasteners and folding passenger pegs – the look and feel of this premium sport heritage bike inspires lasting pride of ownership.
Flexible and relaxed riding position
You’ll find that the ergonomics on this outstanding sport heritage bike give you all the flexibility and versatility you need in different types of riding – sports, urban or relaxed. Its slightly rear-biased riding position with wide controllable handlebars give that pure roadster feel – and the relaxed foot position and "sit-in" not "sit-on" seat with rear hump provides a comfortable and secure riding feeling.
Signature XSR full LED lighting
The XSR900 features full LED lighting with a split projector and half round position lamp, styled in a round retro-effect headlamp. The hidden taillight has a smoked appearance that enhances the bike’s pure and timeless looks – while compact and bright LED flashers complete lighting package.
Modern take on historic colouring
The XSR900 pays homage to the past through colouring and graphics referencing historic Yamaha racing motorcycles. The Legend Red option is a modern interpretation of one of Yamaha’s most famous racing colour schemes, underlining the fact that the performance and design implications of the 80s era still have a strong influence in the present day – with the Deltabox chassis as clear proof.
High performance brakes and suspension
No compromises have been made when it comes to the XSR900’s technical specification that includes a Brembo radial master cylinder and 298 mm dual front discs that gives you high levels of braking power and precise controllability. Fully adjustable USD forks and link-type rear suspension system are easy to set up to suit your needs, and Yamaha’s latest superlight Spinforged wheels minimise unsprung weight for responsive handling performance.
Sophisticated electronic rider controls
At the heart of the XSR900’s advanced electronics is an R1-derived six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit, which controls the Lean-Sensitive Traction Control, Slide Control System (SCS) and front wheel LIFt control system (LIF) for secure riding in different conditions. Modes can be selected and controlled via the full colour TFT meter.
Versatile high-torque EU5 CP3 890cc engine
Yamaha’s 890cc CP3 engine is the perfect match for the XSR900’s sporty and versatile Deltabox chassis. Producing high levels of linear torque, this smooth and controllable inline 3-cylinder engine is ready to deliver whatever style of riding you feel like at the time. Ride it hard for thrilling adrenaline performance, or let it pull at lower rpm in a higher gear when you want to take it easy. And with its specially tuned intake and exhaust sound, every ride is an aural experience. Rev or Relax, the choice is yours!
Lightweight Deltabox-style chassis, long swingarm
First developed for Yamaha’s race bikes in the 1980s, Yamaha’s Deltabox frame design is recognised for its combination of strength and lightness. The XSR900 is equipped with the latest version of the Deltabox frame, and features walls of different thickness that gives "tuned rigidity" providing sporty and precise handling with a higher level of feel and feedback. A new longer swingarm gives the bike a relaxed and planted feel to suit its versatile character.
QSS, Cruise Control, A&S clutch
The XSR900 comes with a high specification as standard and includes a Quick Shift System for clutchless upshifts and downshifts, as well as an Assist & Slipper (A&S) clutch for increased chassis controllability when slowing down. The Cruise Control is ideal for when you’re in a relaxed mood.
