What we say…

Inside every rider is the burning desire to own and ride the kind of bike that will always make you feel good inside. And this is it!

Yamaha and Abarth have created the XSR900 Abarth - a lightweight high-performance retro special whose authentic café racer design reflects the true spirit of the 1960s.

The lightweight carbon bodywork and swallow handlebars with a solo seat give a sporty riding position - and with its high-torque 850cc, 3-cylinder engine and full Akrapovič exhaust, this premium café racer blends ultra-cool style with sports performance.


Lightweight carbon front cowl

In true café racer style the XSR900 Abarth is fitted with a compact and lightweight front cowl that is manufactured from carbon fibre. Featuring a classic round headlight, the raw finish of the unpainted carbon cowl reinforces the minimalist and sporty looks of this exclusive 'Faster Sons' special.


Clip-on style swallow handlebars

To enable you to get your weight lower and help to keep your upper body out of the main airflow, the XSR900 Abarth is fitted with special swallow handlebars. Their low clip-on design gives a sports riding position with an enhanced degree of controllability, making you feel at one with this exclusive motorcycle.


Carbon seat cowl and front fender

Thanks to the widespread use of carbon fibre, the XSR900 Abarth is one of the lightest models in the café racer category. As well as the lightweight front cowl, the front fender and solo seat cowl are also manufactured from carbon fibre, underlining the machine's premium build quality and genuine racing heritage.


Compact tail light assembly

Housed within the carbon solo seat cowl there's a compact circular tail light assembly that complements the overall café racer style and reinforces the sporty and minimalist design of this lightweight special. And for a smooth and neat looking tail end, a specially designed lightweight licence plate holder is fitted.


Sports solo seat with suede cover

The solo seat is designed to complement the swallow handlebars and give you a sports riding position that keeps your bodyweight closer to the bike for better mass centralization. Featuring a high quality stitched suede cover that runs up the front of the carbon seat cowl, this sports solo seat gives a comfortable ride with plenty of lumbar


Full Akrapovič exhaust

Akrapovič are recognized as the industry leaders in the design and manufacture of lightweight performance exhausts, and the XSR900 Abarth is equipped with a specially designed 3-into-1 system with titanium headers and double titanium slip on mufflers. As well as helping to keep weight low, this exclusive system sounds great and enhances performance.
