Yamaha has pulled off the hat trick with its versatile and affordable 847cc inline-three sport-standard platform. On the heels of taking Best Middleweight honors in its debut year, the venerable FZ-09 was shuffled to Best Standard of 2015. Keeping with current styling and technology trends, Yamaha has treated its alloy-framed sport naked to a fresh form in the neo-retro-inspired XSR900. Beneath the modern café appearance is a very sporting powertrain featuring refined multi-mode power-delivery profiles, traction control, improved sporting suspension calibration, and ABS brakes. Sport Heritage is what Yamaha has termed a new multi-model segment within its street line. Unassuming performance and versatility for the price is what we call the XSR900.
