Fantastic neo-retro machine

This is my fourth bike and I absolutely love it. The power, the brakes, the suspension, the sound it makes even with the stock exhaust. Nice comfy seat, good set of handlebars. This is a fantastic bike out of the box. Really liking the instrument cluster as well for look and functionality. Decent fuel economy as well.

The negatives - terrible stock mirrors (can hardly see anything) and small-ish tank, resulting in a comfortable maximum of around 200 km between fill ups. Coming from a CBR500, where I could do 400 km between fill ups, this feels quite limiting.

All in all - one of the best bikes in that category at the moment. Fantastic price for what you get!

Purchased in June 2018.

Retro To Suit.

Purchased a 2016 Yamaha XSR900, you can sort of retro customise this to your own taste with accessories Yamaha sell for it. The drop down handlebars though make this bike feel like a bike from yesteryear, and the give the bike a new dimension. Hard at first on the shoulders, elbows and wrists, but what a Cafe Racer it makes ! What you get for your dollar is impressive, maybe the best value bike around right now, and frankly fallen in love with this bike. Do yourself a favour and see one in the flesh before you judge it, as on line / from pictures it's quite, well yuk, but once dressed up, a cool kat for sure. Performance is outstanding.
