2016 Yamaha XSR900 on http://www.Totalmotorcycle.com

The Faster Sons Philosophy...

Yamaha’s ‘Faster Sons’ philosophy continues to grow; tipping its hat in respect to the bikes that came before, whilst showing pride in the faster sons of today and tomorrow.

The Sport Heritage bike building philosophy pushed the boundaries of motorcycle technology earlier this year, bringing Faster Sons to life with the XSR700. The cool, retro styled street bike paid tribute to the iconic Yamaha XS650 on the surface whilst showcasing the latest in Yamaha technology under the skin to deliver timeless style with an involved, emotional riding experience.

Yamaha continues to evolve its Sport Heritage range, never standing still. Now a new chapter has arrived with the second model that lives and breathes the Faster Sons philosophy, the all-new XSR900.

The Shinya Kimura collaboration with Yamaha saw the Faster Sons philosophy realized and confirmed with the ‘Faster Son’, influencing the development of the XSR700. The XSR900 shares a similar story, continuing to develop the Faster Sons story through collaboration with iconic builders. It was Roland Sands’ stunning triple concept, the ‘Faster Wasp’ launched earlier this month that further validated the philosophy. The concept shone with classic retro style blended with cutting edge technology and a strong race influence, inspiring the concept of the XSR900.

Design Inspiration

Building on the success of the XSR700, The all-new XSR900 steps up to join the Sport Heritage range, again paying tribute to the iconic motorcycles of Yamaha’s past, including the first 4-stroke model,

The simple, timeless styling of the XSR900 is perfectly blended with colour schemes and graphics to reflect Yamaha’s sporty DNA, its history and its iconic motorcycles of the past. Beneath the retro inspired exterior lies the latest and best of Yamaha’s technology, promising a true emotional riding experience.

The XSR900 delivers on its authentic feel with minimal use of plastic resin parts, instead offering high quality components to reward the senses. A 14-litre fuel tank with aluminium covers takes centre stage ahead of a split level stitched seat and is complimented by front and rear aluminium fenders, aluminium side covers and a sporty aluminium headlight stay. A matt black exhaust system with contrasting polished muffler end cap provides a throaty soundtrack to any riding adventure.

The Ride

The XSR900 has the ‘Go’ to match the ‘Show’ with a powerful in-line 3-cylinder 850cc Crossplane Concept engine. The liquid-cooled 4-stroke motor benefits from some of the latest bike technology to deliver an unparalleled riding experience, including a Traction Control System (TCS) and an Assist & Slipper (A&S) clutch.

The TCS is fully adjustable with three performance modes depending on the road conditions. Riders can opt for minimal or maximal intervention and can also switch the system off completely when appropriate to do so.

The A&S clutch adds another level to rider enjoyment, providing more comfort through a gentler machine motion resulting from back torque when downshifting through the gears. It also creates a lighter clutch feel, inspiring more confidence when starting off and also coming to a stop, particularly when riding in the city.

To reach the full potential of the powerful and involving engine and technology package requires a chassis set up to match, and the XSR900 doesn't disappoint. A lightweight CF aluminium die-cast frame cradles the heart of the machine whilst the swingarm’s pivot is attached to the outside of the frame, creating a narrower, slimmer area around the feet. The end results deliver a foot position on par with an inline 2-cylinder motorcycle.

Keeping the ride under control and offering even more input for the rider are the front and rear suspension setups. 41mm upside down forks at the front and a linked-type Monocross rear with shock unit are taken from the class leading Yamaha MT-09, and given specific setting changes for the XSR900. Rebound damping is adjustable at the front and preload and rebound damping at the rear, giving total control.

The carefully thought out and designed engine and chassis package, mixed with cutting edge electronics means the XSR900 has everything to offer riders who already have a base set of riding skills and are maybe ready to step up from an entry level sport bike. The new Sport Heritage machine is also the perfect choice for those who appreciate the real fun of riding motorcycles and who take the design and style of their machines seriously. The icing on the cake for total control comes in the form of Yamaha’s D-MODE selection system, allowing the selection of engine character to suit the riding conditions. Riders can switch between sharper response characteristics and a milder, gentler setting with easier-to-use power for more challenging road conditions.


STYLE ALL ITS OWN

The XSR900™ blends Yamaha engineering with neo-retro style, creating a new machine for riders looking for an authentic and honest motorcycle with plenty of performance.


Conquer Road

Introducing the new XSR900. Based on the popular FZ-09, the XSR is a beautiful blend of 3-cylinder performance and eye catching "authentic sports" styling. The XSR includes all of the FZ-09's key features plus traction control and ABS equipped brakes. A natural riding position offers solid riding comfort while the new slipper clutch with assist highlights the more serious sports side of the XSR. Tasty, timeless styling combined with plenty of Yamaha's latest technologies, the XSR is guaranteed to provide a fun, exciting ride.

Thanks to High_side for recommending not only the 2016 Yamaha XSR900 for this week, but for pointing out, that I completely forgot to add the 2016 Yamaha XSR900 to our 2016 Yamaha Model Guide! DOH.

It's added now though in all it's glory. http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... XSR900.htm :revv:

Enjoy!

Awesome, looks like a fun bike. 115hp and a triple, Rad high enough to be protected from the road crap coming off the tire. Some flat back to the radiator side panels so it would blend in. Seems like we have already had this bike? Slap on my tail bag for my work stuff and this would be a fun commuter. Checked out yamahas site and it has some good accessories for the bike.

I felt it looked a little too parts bin special but it is growing on me - a lot. If you take a look at what customizers have been doing with this bike it helps to seal the deal. I vote awesome.

I know what you mean... and I ABSOLUTELY love it in that Yamaha retro racing yellow paint too... I can't believe Yamaha slapped on extra cost for the paint "$9,990 - 60th Anniversary Yellow "... it's like they knew I wouldn't have given a damn about the extra cost and would order that one anyways...!

LOL

They seem to be everywhere these days. Blackfoot Cycle here in Calgary has an entire section for hipster type gear but I barely felt cool enough to be in there. The older and more beat up the gear looks, the more that they charge for it ......hehe

That explains the silly offers the bike shop got for my jacket. Put my bike in to get some maintenance done, namely brakes and rebuilding the front fork with heavier spring, and new seal along with new tires (she handles like a completely different bike, very nimble) and left my leather jacket there as it was baking that day. Figured they hang it up in the closet, but instead had it hanging on the jacket rack. Seem's a lot of people showed interest in it and were making offers. I've had it now for six years so you can imagine how beat up it has become after riding in all sorts of weather.
Always ask why.

I think it's awesome. I appreciate that Triumph and Guzzi try to make their retro bikes as period-looking as possible. Ural and Royal Enfield are essentially selling slightly updated, newly-manufactured vintage bikes.

But the XSR900 is a different take on retro; it's clearly a modern bike, but with classic cues, shapes, and proportions, a bit like the Ducati Scrambler. That said, there are a lot of clunky details that show this wasn't originally intended to be retro, and is a modified existing design. I don't mind, you can always mod it further, and I'm willing to put up with some ugly bits in exchange for modern bike performance (horsepower, upside down forks, twin front disks, slipper clutch, traction control, etc.).

Sweet! It even has quite a lot of sun fading on the shoulders, and some road rash on the butt from my crash in '01 too (that might bring an extra dollar or two). :revv:

Ya know, just for the hell of it and as an experiment, you should put them up on ebay advertised as "Retro Riding Gear" at some stupid starting price and see what happens, then let us know the results. :D

I went with: Cool

Yup, I know, you bet I was going to vote Awesome, but while I do think parts of it is awesome (tank/seat/wheels/engine), there are other parts/designs of the bike that haven't grown on me just yet (headlight/gauge/tail lights/horn placement) that would be harder to live with. The XSR700 I sat on at the Calgary motorcycle show this year was comfortable and a lot higher seat height than I anticipated for a standard. It feels more of a dual-sport standard height than a normal seat height, even though stats say it's "Seat Height 32.7 in". Great bike though, love the idea of putting in a triple cylinder engine in there over a parallel twin. :revv:

Also I really like the retro paint job, sad it's only for this year (from what I've read) though. The guage/clock is what really gets me, it's off-set and doesn't really look retro or even nice. Couldn't they have used a twin clock setup or even a normal analog clock?

Image

I like what Grey Thumper said "it's clearly a modern bike, but with classic cues, shapes, and proportions... there are a lot of clunky details that show this wasn't originally intended to be retro, and is a modified existing design."

Reminds me a lot of what we saw in the late 80's and 90s with standards turning into sportbikes as sportbikes were the "thing" at the time and then sportbikes turning into cruisers! It was all a bit crazy then... but we have it today with Yamaha and the FZ-09 and FZ-07 engines and Kawasaki with the 650cc engine in the Ninja to the Vulcan, much like they did with the 500cc version.

Still, the XSR900 is a bike I'd be happy to own (with some more retro modifications) in Yamaha yellow, and a bike I'd gravitate towards at a bike night, and for that, it's a solid cool for me. :revv:

2016 Yamaha XSR900 - Coolness Factor = 71.1%
Featured: August 19th - August 26th, 2016
Most popular vote category: Cool

Image

Motorcycle Cool Wall discussion: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=53495
Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... XSR900.htm

Your Coolness Factor of the 2016 Yamaha XSR900 is:

Awesome (3 points) 30% [ 9 ]
Cool (2 points) 57% [ 17 ]
Uncool (1 point) 10% [ 3 ]
Fail (0 point) 3% [ 1 ]

Total votes: 30

= a Coolwall Factor of 71.1%


Notes: If I can sum-up in two words what the Total Motorcycle community thinks of the new Yamaha XSR900 modern-retro bike, it would be "Yes, please!". 87% of members say the bike is at least Cool if not awesome. Not a bad prediction at all for Yamaha's sales! People love the classic Yamaha yellow paint job as well. Personally, I wish they could do something about the awkward position and look/design of the gauge mostly. But then it would be more retro-modern-retro of a bike I guess! lol.


Get excited as the next TMW Cool Wall bike for 2016 is now up for voting and discussion, have fun!
