Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
The XSR900™ blends Yamaha engineering with neo-retro style, creating a thrilling, timeless machine for riders seeking an authentic and honest motorcycle with plenty of performance.Features may include:
The XSR900 features a thrilling 847cc liquid-cooled inline 3-cylinder, DOHC, 4-valve-per-cylinder Crossplane Crankshaft Concept engine based on the FZ-09. With a 78mm x 59.1mm bore and stroke and 11.5:1 compression ratio, the compact motor produces a torquey and quick-revving engine character.Advanced Ride-by-Wire Throttle with D-MODE
The XSR900 is equipped with Yamaha’s Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) for precise throttle control, as well as Yamaha’s selectable D-MODE, which allows the rider to adjust engine character on the fly. STD Mode is set to accommodate a wide range of riding conditions, A Mode gives the rider a sportier throttle response in the low-to mid-rpm range, and B Mode lets the rider enjoy a softer throttle response.Adjustable Traction Control
The XSR900’s Traction Control System lets the rider get on the gas with more confidence, by regulating ignition timing, fuel injection and throttle valve opening based on wheel speeds. Three modes are available: Mode “1” is for minimal intervention, Mode “2” is for maximum intervention, and “OFF” switches the system off entirely.
The XSR900 blends Yamaha’s world-class engineering with standout neo-retro style, creating a new type of machine for riders looking for an authentic and honest motorcycle that doesn’t sacrifice performance. Drawing influence from Yamaha’s classic “XS” series of motorcycles, the XSR oozes class, with exposed aluminum details, retro-influenced bodywork, stepped seat and custom lighting and instrumentation.Compact, Sporty Chassis
Underneath the new bodywork, an aluminum frame features a sport-oriented wheelbase, with rake and trail geometry working with the compact 3-cylinder engine to achieve light and nimble handling.Adjustable Suspension
Both front and rear suspension systems feature spring preload and rebound damping adjustments for a truly customizable ride. Up front, an inverted fork with 41mm inner tubes provides 5.4 inches of travel, while the rear linkage-type monoshock uses a nearly horizontal layout for improved mass-centralization, along with 5.1 inches of rear wheel travel.
The new round LCD panel features a ton of information: digital tachometer, speedometer, gear position, eco mode indicator, TCS and D-MODE indicators, ambient and coolant temperature, a fuel gauge and range of trip computer functions, including a clock, instant and average fuel consumption, fuel reserve trip meter and the usual trip meters.Neo-Retro Lighting
Up front, a large, round multi-reflector headlight provides both style and illumination in equal measure, complete with trick aluminum supports, while out back, a round all-LED tail and brake light is mounted above the rear fender.Stylish and Ergonomic Fuel Tank
A compact 3.7 gallon fuel tank with offset fuel filler is shrouded by beautifully shaped and hand-finished aluminum covers for a timeless design.
