Yamaha XSR900
Insurance Costs: 9 of 10
Current Prices: £7,700–£4,900

What Is It?

The Yamaha XSR900 is a modern naked bike with a bit of retro styling thrown into the mix and is powered by a liquid cooled 847 cc triple engine, producing 113.4 bhp at 10,000 rpm and maximum torque at 8,500 rpm.

Features include:

  • Aluminium frame and swingarm
  • Dual 298 mm discs up front with four piston calipers
  • Rear 245 mm disc with Nissin single piston caliper
  • ABS and 6 speed gearbox
  • Adjustable 41 mm upside down fork with 137 mm travel
  • Adjustable rear shock with 130 mm travel
  • 2-level traction control
  • 3 riding modes (same as the Tracer 900)
  • 6 speed gearbox with gear position sensor
  • Slipper clutch

Compared to the MT-09, on which it's based, the XSR900 is 7 kg heavier and the seat is also 15 mm 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. The fuel tank is pretty unique, in that the colours are added via three Aluminium covers 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).
