We test the updated 2022 Yamaha XSR900, which sports new livery inspired by the ’80s-era Sunauto Yamaha GP team. The Legend Blue colorway shown above has gold fork legs and gold wheels, as well as yellow graphics with a contrasting light blue panel on the tank. The XSR is also available in all-black Raven.

In addition to refreshed styling, part of the XSR900’s update included the revised CP3 (Crossplane 3-cylinder) engine and 6-axis IMU also found on the MT-09 and Tracer 9 GT (which won Rider‘s 2021 Motorcycle of the Year award). It also gest a new tubular-steel subframe, a longer swingarm, and a Brembo radial front master cylinder.
