• Spruce Up Your Yamaha XSR900 With This Subtle-Yet-Smoking Body Kit

Looking to breathe new life into your beloved XSR900? This is arguably the most pocket-friendly way of going about it

Neo-retro motorcycles are a special breed of bikes that blend old-school charm with modern-day hardware and a key player in this niche segment is the Yamaha XSR900.

While the XSR900 is gorgeous as it is, Yamaha has taken the wraps off a special body kit for the bike in partnership with a Japanese company YS Gear. This kit adds a fair bit of flair to the neo-retro bike.

Unveiled at the 2022 Osaka Motor Show, the body kit is suitable for any Yamaha XSR900 built between 2016 and 2021, and helps transform the motorcycle into a sinister custom-looking bike. Plus, owners who’ve had the XSR for a while can use it to this to breathe new life into their aging motorcycle.

The list of parts includes fuel tank side covers, fuel tank center cover, side panels, and an aftermarket seat. Not to mention, all this can be easily bolted on and reversed whenever necessary.

The highlight of this add on body kit is the fuel tank covers which feature a shiny sunburst orange color on an overall black base coat
The company claims it takes only 1.2 hours to put all of this on.

Coming to the parts themselves, the fuel tank is arguably the most stand out part here, wrapped in a deep black base coat topped off by orange sunburst paint and high a level of detailing. Along with this, the tank covers get a golden Yamaha emblem to add a premium touch to the bike. Likewise, the side panels too are all black and get golden XSR900 badges.

And everything is brought together with this dual-tone leather seat

Finally, a special dual-tone seat brings everything together. The center part of the seat has a leather texture while the sides get a grainy printed texture.

With everything bolted on, the XSR900 looks quite fresh yet retro, almost like a custom motorcycle built to stand out from the crowd. All you need to do afterward is slap on an aftermarket exhaust and orange rim stickers to make this even more appealing.

What’s The Price & Where Can You Buy?

Overall, this is a unique yet pocket-friendly way to spice up your XSR900. For pricing, availability, and other details, swipe up.

The maker of this kit, YS Gear, has priced the body kit at 198,000 Yen ( $1,640) which makes it rather affordable. The only issue here, though, is that you’ll have to figure out a way to outsource this kit from Japan, as YS Gear doesn’t export its products at the moment.

For what it’s worth, this is a sure-shot and fairly easy inexpensive way to dazzle up your XSR900.
