A WELCOME DIVERSION
Yamaha claimed their 1995 XJ900 Diversion was the ideal sportstourer. This was a machine capable of pleasing born-again bikers and newcomers while also offering experienced riders a versatile do-it-all machine. And they were right. The 900 Divvie might not have been the most enthralling ride but it did exactly what most owners wanted. The shaft-drive machines were made until 2004 and you can pick a decent one up now for as little as £1500.
