The 2022 Yamaha XSR900 comes with a higher power and a completely updated retro design.

It surpasses the standards set by the vintage performance machines.

The XSR900 gets a new appearance for 2022, reminiscent of Yamaha's Grand Prix motorcycles from the 1980s.

The 2022 XSR900 boasts a larger engine and updated ergonomics compared to the 2021 model.

The updated vintage motorcycle is much more stable in a straight line and through turns because of the stiffer chassis' revised geometry.

Complete-color 3.5" TFT screen, electronic quickshifter, full LED illumination, and improved safety measures are all highlights of the 2022 Yamaha XSR900.

The new 890cc inline-three engine of XSR900 provides power much more smoothly and doesn't stutter when the throttle is held firm.

Although the riding position is slightly more aggressive than the MT-09, your wrist or back is not overly stressed.

The 2022 Yamaha XSR900 costs $500 more than the 2022 MT-09, coming in at $9999.

Although the Yamaha XSR900 isn't a slave to fashion, it still boasts an excellent retro appearance.
