Yamaha has simply launched some new particulars on 2022 XSR900 – and I’m digging the retro graphics.
With the MT-09 compliant with Euro5 requirements as of final 12 months, we knew the XSR900 wouldn’t be too far behind. In any case, the XSR900 is the MT’s sibling…solely it sports activities Oxfords, not Brogues.
The report from MCN states that the XSR900’s now bought the now-Euro5-compliant transverse triple engine to push it about (889cc’s value, similar because the MT-09), and we’re guessing the torque will likely be one thing comparable. 93Nm was the (good) torque determine for Yamaha’s 2021 MT-09, and that mixed with the 119bhp and new tuned exhaust system guarantees to present a wee bit extra enjoyable than not.
The XSR900 can even sport MT-09’s Deltabox body, in addition to Brembo radial grasp cylinder brakes, inverted KYB forks, entrance air intakes, and the race-style filler (to enhance the decrease handlebars, MotoGP-inspired 15-litre gasoline tank, and longer swingarm – all set as much as make the machine extra race-ready).
Yamaha’s 2022 XSR900 can even have 4 trip modes, a brand new TFT sprint (3.5″), a regular fast shifter, a six-axis IMU that offers us three-way lean-sensitive traction and slide management plus anti-wheelie and cornering ABS – the wonder even sports activities a pair of ‘spin-forged’ forged wheels, lightening the bike by an additional 700g.
The pricing hasn’t been revealed but, although we’re anticipating one thing alongside the $10,000 USD mark, provided that the 2021 MT-09 and XSR900 had been priced from $9,399 and $9,499, respectively.
Having reviewed Yamaha’s 2016 XSR900 with our personal Brandon Jackson, we’re excited to see how this narrower, stiffer unit handles.
Keep tuned for updates, and make sure you brush up on different information from Yamaha when you’re right here.
