Yamaha XSR900 US Price Announced

2016 Yamaha XSR900

Yamaha. We were so so patient with you. We viewed your XJR 1300 from afar with hungry eyes. We watched as you released the XSR700 in Europe and gave us nothing. And finally, FINALLY, you're throwing us one of your neo-retro bones!

The XSR900 is coming to the US, and not just that, but it's hitting the market under $10k. $9,490 to be exact for the Matte Gray/Aluminum, which will be available from March 2016, and $9,990 for that insane bumble bee 60th anniversary yellow, which will be available from April 2016. For such a slight price difference on a first year model, I would 100% go with that kickass yellow, but thats just me.

2016 Yamaha XSR900 front details

Utilizing the three cylinder engine from the FZ-09, a power plant that other motorcycle magazines and reviewers have had nothing but good things to say about, the XSR900 comes out as a well rounded and approachable bike that hits that price point perfectly.

We see this bike as being a lower priced competition for the BMW R nineT and right in line with the new Triumph Bonnevilles. Love the standard lines of it and can't wait to get the chance to ride one soon!
