Y amaha prop­erly hit the nail on the head with the XSR900. It looks great with its on-trend retro styling and, thanks to Yamaha’s ex­ten­sive cat­a­logue of ac­ces­sories, is easy to per­son­alise too. It’s both ver­sa­tile and fun with ev­ery­day us­abil­ity, wh­cih is all very im­pres­sive for a bike this af­ford­able.

The in­line triple comes from the highly pop­u­lar MT-09, with re­vised fu­elling map and also comes with the

added ben­e­fit of trac­tion con­trol and ABS as stan­dard.

There are three rider modes to com­pli­ment this, A, Stan­dard and B, which change the throt­tle re­sponse but not peak power. There are also two lev­els of trac­tion con­trol, which can be changed on the move with the throt­tle closed or can be de­ac­ti­vated com­pletely with the bike in neu­tral and stopped. De­spite its MT-09 DNA, the XSR has a char­ac­ter all of its own.
