    Yamaha XSR900 GP rep

    This I like a lot. You can spec it with a lower fairing but I do like the look as it is.

    Yes, looks good and probably goes even better.
    IMO, all the harking back to the 2stroke racebike history is wrong.
    What it looks like to me is the FZ750R alloy frame JDM bikes that were the basis for Yamaha's endurance race effort.
    Looks like something off the Suzuka 8 hour grid - and there's nothing wrong with that.

    Negatory. The rectangle light spoils the front like an afterthought. Ironic as they have the answer already with the R1M under lights.

    Talking about afterthought, that tailpiece is way too small for the bike and looks like it doesn't fit, like someone rested it there.

    Yes, make it 8hr rep.

    it reminded me of the 1984 Eddie YZR500 only far less chunky
    i don't like the front guard on the new one and the tail piece is too short.
    Edit the front guard on th enew one closely resembles the 86 USD version so i take back what i said...

    Sorry the first pic is a 86.

    I quite like it. I would like it more with a 500cc direct injection two stroke. Or a rotary engine. A boy can dream.

    It looks like the kind of bike that ends up in someone's garage, just to be looked at because of its replica-retro styling. Fans of old 1980s bikes might like it, the old styling is 'interesting', but it's too janky and unbalanced to be beautiful.
    I hope it rides as well as the GP name suggests, a lot of people were hoping for an R9.

    If they specced it with analogue dials I think they’d really nail it, but damn I’d nearly buy one just for the paint scheme

    Am on the lookout for my last new bike to celebrate impending retirement. This has just popped on to my list.

    Would need the lower fairing and a tail tidy. If it had speed blocks it would be higher on my list. If it had twin headlights like my old FZR600 it would be top three. Front on it looks odd but lots of room for the old Barry Sheene number 7 sticker.

    Hmmmmmm.

    Edit - Strayans get a video and pics of the grey one. Can't see that shifting big numbers. https://www.yamaha-motor.com.au/disc.../new-xsr900-gp

    Obviously the arse end has been hit with the ugly stick and I don't know what you do about that. Oh yes I do, wait for this one - Yamaha R9?

    Or perhaps the GP is it?

    A few rags have been saying that the GP is the suspected bike in that year old article. Time will tell. Although as a friend pointed out to me, it wouldn't take much to graft an FZR400 race tail section onto the GP.

    Hate to think how much the 'racer pack' will be if the bike ever comes to NZ- XSR900 GP Racer Pack

    Base model plus the lower fairing coming out at between 27 and 28K over in little old Europe from what I have been reading.

    Dropped off my list now.

    Did find this the other day which looked kind of cool if you have an XSR900 lying around - MCN-velocity-moto-yamaha-xsr900-rd500lc/
