We ride Yamaha’s XSR900 modern retro bike, finished in the new Dynamic White colour scheme. Here’s what we reckon…
Pricing for the 2020 XSR900 remains unchanged at $14,849 rideaway.
As before, the XSR900 features an 847cc triple, which offers three levels of traction control, selectable rider modes and an assist and slipper clutch.
The XSR900 is based on the brand’s MT-09 naked sportsbike, but instead offers retro features like an aluminium tank cover, front and rear aluminium fenders, a stitched seat, circular instrument clock, circular tail light and retro-style headlight with an aluminium stay.
Spencer has a keen eye for hard news, and does some of his best living on deadline day. He loves more than anything to travel on his motorcycle, and is adamant that Melbourne Bitter is a world-class lager. He also knows how to operate the big computery thing in the office. By night, Spencer plays guitar with Melbourne punk outfit LOUTS.
