XSR900 Hits The DOT

2016 Yamaha XSR900

Yamaha’s retro flavoured cafe racer illustrates that attention to detail  gets results as the XSR900 garnered a “Best of the Best” Red Dot Award for 2017. The Red Dot Awards are for industrial and product design and cover the entire spectrum although it is not unusual for motorcycles to get a nod for great looks. It is the details and care that went into making the the XSR900 something special that drew the judges’ appreciation as underneath the steampunk exterior in the same chassis as propels the FZ-09. We have to give the nod to the yellow and bare metal colour schemes from 2016 models over 2017’s blue and black offerings.
