The cooperation between Yamaha and Abarth resulted in an even more provocative version of the naked bike, which is produced in a limited edition.
This is what the standard version of the Yamaha XSR 900 looks like.
The system of the Yamaha XSR 900 Abarth is made of titanium from the manifold to the mufflers.
The Abarth version cannot match the light-footedness of the XSR 900, which is mainly due to the low-lying handlebars.
The Abarth used a lot of carbon parts. Hence the price of 12,595 euros.
So that everyone can see what you have: there will be 695 pieces of the XSR 900 Abarth, all strictly numbered.
Fiat’s tuning company Abarth has been supporting the Yamaha MotoGP team since 2007.
The handlebars arch your back mightily, the ends are low. The dashboard that also adorns the normal XSR 900 is not new.
Two double flutes form the end of the Akra complete system, which is made of titanium.
The Abarth is not the better Yamaha XSR 900, but with its cafe racer look it arouses a bit more emotions than the standard version. In addition, it is guaranteed not to be seen everywhere.

Yamaha puts the crown on the Naked XSR 900 with an exclusive Abarth look. All just glare or serious upgrading?
Abarth and Yamaha, that sounds strange. To clarify: Fiat has been supporting the Yamaha MotoGP team since 2007. In the course of this cooperation, people have put their heads together. Fiat has the Abarth tuning company, and Yamaha has the trendy Faster Sons models with the highlight XSR 900. Two motorized locomotion that tickles emotionally, you should be able to do something together. Could. The result is the Yamaha XSR 900 Abarth, whose four-wheeled sister goes by the name Abarth 695 Tributo XSR. But this is ultimately about bikes, and the number is important because: The Abarth motorcycle is limited to 695 units worldwide. 140 of these should come to Germany.

Test drive in continuous rain
So how does the Yamaha XSR 900 Abarth ride? Not bad. Whereby: The constant rain during the performance in Sardinia put a damp stop to serious testing. So it was a good thing that Yamaha left the three-cylinder crossplane in the Abarth version completely untouched. The 847 cm³ large treble hook pushes beefy from below, makes a lot of steam in the strong middle and likes to cheer in the highest tones when needed. 115 hp at 10,000 rpm ultimately crave to be used briefly even on a wet slope. The triple responds fine, thanks to three different modes, everything from delicate to direct is included. Another good thing: the traction control, which in the wet conditions ensured that the engine power arrives as safely as possible on the road. And because the base fits so well, Yamaha did not change anything in terms of technology with the Abarth debut. The chassis and brakes correspond exactly to the components of the XSR 900. And it is known as a lively retro corner sweeper.
Pushups are the order of the day
However, the Yamaha XSR 900 Abarth does not come close to their light footedness, which is mainly due to the new handlebars. Its ends are bent downwards, turning the upright XSR 900 into a super sporty Abarth XSR. Pushups are the order of the day. It is difficult to find a clean line in the first few meters, and the imaginary line does not match the driven one. The Abarth challenges. And turns it on too. As soon as the line is right, it sails through the radii in the best XSR manner. She spices up her appearance with fine carbon parts for the lamp mask, front mudguard and chic solo seat. The eye likes to get caught. The ear, on the other hand, appreciates the sound of the Akrapovic double-barreled horns, which sizzle wonderfully when you take off the gas. The system is made of titanium from the manifold to the end pots.
That can’t be cheap. The limited Yamaha XSR 900 Abarth costs 12,595 euros. It’s not the better XSR 900, but with its cafe racer look it arouses a little more emotions than the standard version. In addition, it is guaranteed not to be seen everywhere. Hence: Exclusivity has always been a price driver and, as in this case, that is quite justified.
