Yamaha XSR900 CP3. Yellow version

Yamaha XSR900 is a neo-retro standard Universal Japanese Motorcycle, which uses an 847 cc (51.7 cu in) transverse inline-triple engine. Introduced in 2016, the XSR900 is derived from Yamaha’s MT-09 (known as FZ-09 in North America).

Yamaha brought the XSR900 to market in 2016, releasing it in two variants worldwide.

The first, a variant uses a yellow and black paint scheme with a gold-colored inverted fork. This paint scheme is a 60th Anniversary Edition first used on other Yamaha models in 2015, such as the YZF-R1, to commemorate Yamaha’s 60 years of racing heritage, which began in 1955 and strongly resembles the classic “speed block” design popularized by Kenny Roberts in the 1970s. The second variant uses a more muted aluminum tank over black frame and black inverted fork.

The Yamaha XSR900 and MT-09 share the same 847 cc liquid-cooled DOHC inline three-cylinder engine with a 120° crankshaft. The engine has a power output of 115 hp (86 kW) @ 10,000 rpm and 65 lb⋅ft (88 N⋅m) @ 8,500 rpm.

Motorcyclist got a tested 1/4 mile time of 11.07 seconds at 122.33 mph (196.87 km/h). The XSR incorporated several new features, including user-changeable throttle control mappings, a new engine control unit, antilock braking system, multiple traction control modes, and stiffened suspension.
