Motorcyclists can be a nostalgic bunch. Which is why dealer showroom floors are flooded with bikes that are dead ringers for those of yesteryear. A taste for classic aesthetics, however, doesn’t have to veer toward a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past. Take the 2020 Yamaha XSR900: If it fell from the heavens in the mid-1960s, this three-cylinder machine would have looked unusual, sure, but still recognizable as a motorcycle. In 2020, the “neo-retro” style—as Yamaha calls it—doesn’t try to be anything other than just plain cool, especially in its new mid-1980s RZ350-esque Radical White/Rapid Red paint scheme.
