What Is It?
Power is provided by a liquid cooled 847cc inline three cylinder crossplane engine, producing 113.4bhp at 10,000rpm and maximum torque at 8,500rpm.

- Dual 298mm floating discs up front with Nissin two piston calipers
- Rear 245mm disc with Nissin single piston caliper

Compared to the MT-09, on which it's based, the XSR900 is 7kg heavier and the seat is also 15mm higher. It differentiates itself with a black frame, slightly firmer suspension, stitched two level seat, Aluminium fenders and headlight stay, retro halogen round headlight and round LED tail light.
Just like the XSR700 the rear subframe can be easily unbolted to produce a single seat bobber style and there are plenty of accessories to fully customise it. The fuel tank is pretty unique though, in that the colours are added via three Aluminium covers (check the pics above) which can be swapped out for many customisation options. The 10-spoke 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 180/55 at the rear.
Accessories include a colour coded Aluminium seat cowl (£270), suede designer seat (£190), Ohlins suspension, Akrapovic high/low exhaust, radiator cover (£96), smoked fly screen (£85), sport screen (£95) and LED indicators (£48).
