13. YAMAHA XSR900 ABARTH EDITION
THE FACTS O 113bhp O 196kg (est) Seat height 830mm (est)
HIGHLIGHTS 847cc inline triple Official Abarth limited edition Carbon bodywork
Last year’s XSR900 took the MT-09 to a whole new level of attractiveness, but this half-faired carbon-rich version may have just trumped it. The drop bars are key to much of the aesthetic, and resultant change in riding position, but it’s the carbon-fibre nose cowl, seat unit and mudguard that define it. Blending new tech with old-school styling, there’s a suede seat, battleship grey paintjob highlighted with red speedblock and Abarth logos, and a full titanium Akrapovic system. Only 695 will be built, so get your wallet out fast.
