EICMA: Yamaha shows XSR900 Abarth

With Yamaha’s XSR900 a success, the manufacturer has decided to run off a special edition of the machine, with only 695 units made.

The XSR900 Abarth will be available in very limited numbers next year, and is the result of a collaboration with Abarth Cars, a car tuning company that’s been in business since 1949.

The special edition bike has the same three-cylinder, 115 hp engine that powers the standard XSR model, but mixes in some cafe racer styling, some carbon fibre, a suede seat, and a bikini fairing. Slipper clutch, traction control, and ABS are standard equipment.
