Yamaha to release new Black Metallic X for XSR900

Yamaha Motor Company has established a new color Black Metallic X for its XSR900 sport heritage motorcycle and will be released on December 15.

The XSR900 combines Yamaha’s world-class engineering with neo-retro style. It comes equipped with the same 845cc liquid-cooled DOHC inline three-cylinder engine (110ps of maximum output) as the current MT-09. It also features a traction control system (TCS), assist-and-slipper (A&S) wet clutch and ABS to offer a highly dimensional ride.

For the new Black Metallic X, its manually buffed aluminum tank cover comes in black finish and the paint brings out a graphic-like look on its masked hairline. In addition, its front fender stay, radiator side cover and rear fender feature parts that come in exclusive black coloring and combined with its timeless and everlasting design, offers a look that suits a range of lifestyles.

The Yamaha XSR900 is priced at 1,042,200 yen.
