Few bikes com­bine pleas­ing retro looks with bois­ter­ous at­ti­tude like Yamaha’s XSR. The key to this sub­lime blend of cool is that 847cc CP3 triple mo­tor: smooth and so­phis­ti­cated, yet still grav­elly enough to have loads of char­ac­ter.

The XSR has huge midrange grunt, al­low­ing you to fire it out of cor­ners, sur­prise poorly-rid­den sports­bikes and have a huge laugh ev­ery time you ride it. Brakes, sus­pen­sion and han­dling are eas­ily ca­pa­ble of ev­ery­thing from cruis­ing to track­days and are ripe for im­prove­ment, too.

A fu­sion of clas­sic style and mod­ern tech, the min­i­mal­ist dash is a joy – and trac­tion control and ABS come as stan­dard of course. Just bril­liant.

Stun­ningly cool, whether stood still on two wheels – or rid­den on one
