One of our favorite retro-bikes, the XSR900 combines vintage design elements with modern naked-bike engineering in a satisfying way. Its basis is a three-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 847cc engine borrowed from the previous FZ-09. With its MotoGP-bred crossplane crankshaft, that engine provides gutsy power delivery, a pleasant vibration signature, and a unique ripsaw sound. The inverted fork and shock offer only modest adjustability, but the triple disc brakes have standard ABS. And another nice point: The XSR900 has contemporary 17-inch wheels, allowing a wide choice of replacement rubber. Want to tour? Get some sport-touring tires. Or go for a sticky DOT-approved race compound for trackdays. It’s all possible.
