Legend Blue
Yamaha’s designers are getting bolder by the moment

The 2022 Yamaha XSR900 will reach dealers in Europe by February 2022

Yamaha has revealed the model year 2022 XSR900, which is based off of the Euro 5 MT-09, with 80s styling.

Sporting a round headlight, racer-inspired fuel tank, minimalist side panels, a cafe racer style humped seat (dual colour and dual stitched) and hidden tail lamp, the new XSR900 looks unique to say the least.

Instrument Cluster And Switchgear
The petrol tank has a capacity of 14 litres and when fully fuelled, the bike weighs 193 kg

The bike even has a new subframe, but its roots are very evident thanks to exposed (and very familiar) parts like the frame and exhaust.

It has good equipment like full-LED lighting, a 3.5-inch TFT display, 6-axis IMU and good attention to detail. For example, the colourways – Legend Blue and Midnight Black – are a modern take on historic paint schemes.

2022 Yamaha XSR900 Side
The motorcycle is 2155 mm long, 860 mm wide and 1155 mm tall

Power comes from a 889cc 3-cylinder engine (otherwise known as the CP3 motor) which is good for 119 PS at 10,000 RPM and 93 Nm of torque at 7000 RPM. It is teamed to a 6-speed transmission that has an assist and slipper clutch and a quickshifter.

Built on a cast alloy Deltabox frame borrowed from the MT-09, the new XSR900 has a longer swingarm than the modern roadster it is based on. It even has 4 user-selectable ride modes and cruise control.

It has a wheelbase of 1495 mm, seat height of 810 mm and ground clearance of 140 mm

Moreover, the 2022 Yamaha XSR900 has fully adjustable suspension comprising inverted KYB front fork (130 mm travel), rear monoshock (137 mm travel) and 17-inch spin-forged wheels with 120/70-section front and 180/55-section rear rubber.

It has a Brembo radial master cylinder, 298 mm dual front brake discs and a 245 mm rear brake, while lean sensitive traction control, slide control system and front wheel lift control system also improve safety.

Midnight Black
The new XSR900 is lighter than its predecessor and has reduced the steering inertia (by 14 percent)
