It’s no secret that Yamaha has been killing the motorcycle game lately, thanks to the recently unveiled MT-10, the XSR700, and even their Yamaha Motobot concept. So with the company having our attention, they’ve unveiled their newest creation, the 2016 XSR900.

It’s seething with retro flavor, sure, but it’s undeniably a modern performance street bike. It has a speedy inline three-cylinder 847 cc engine that is based on the FZ-09, with a six-speed gearbox. It has selectable traction control and an assist/slipper clutch that reduces clutch lever effort by 20 percent. The aluminum tank is hand buffed, and there are additional aluminum accents on the tail. It’s one stylish naked bike. The motorcycle will be available in Spring 2016 in Matte Gray and a 60th Anniversary Yellow. Pricing is to be announced in February. [Purchase]
