New But Old. Yamaha XSR900 Defines Neo-Retro - KiWAVmotors Yamaha XSR900 2016 with Achilles Mirrors
Perfectly blends classic style and modern technology.

Like the annotation "Born To Rule" that Yamaha made, 2016 Yamaha XSR900 is definitely one-of-a-kind performance street bike. At the first glance, you might think that it is an odd-looking cafe racer. However, you can't deny that it is desirable and hard to be ignored. Underneath that retro style body, XRS900 actually features a 847cc liquid-cooled inline 3-cylinder, DOHC, 4-valve-per-cylinder engine based on the FZ-09, also known as the MT-09, a heart of a beast. Also, standard ABS, TCS (Traction Control System) and D-MODE indicators are providing riders an excellent riding experience.


There is a lot of aluminum material to be used on XSR900, and most of their aluminum original tune is reserved, which enhances its classic and quality image. From many details, you can easily notice it perfectly blends classic style into modern technology.
