Default Shades of the old XS Yammie?

I like the look of this new model, the XSR900.
Kinda chunky and basic, but not without the relevant modern bits.

I've seen this in various mags and it gets a lot of folks juices flowing. Doesn't quite hit the mark for me but I have to say it looks great in that video.

Its a bit bare bones minimum for a factory bike and a far contrast to the new MT10 which is OTT imo.

As long as it's more reliable than the XS750...

Doesn't do it for me - it's just another bike.

Hey I had a 77 XS750 and it was dead reliable. Did an indicated 75 in second, then when it didn't have a second gear, it lasted another twelve months before it started melting valves. Great bike

It too though had something just a bit lacking in the looks dept. That image looks good Hos, but others I've seen make it look as BG said, just a bike.

Sure it'll sell well though.

Yep, but would like to see it with a cockpit fairing like the Fazer 600
