Perfect combination of simple and cool

Agha Saquib Raza | One year ago

I love this bike! It's the perfect combination of simple and cool. Changing the seat was all it needed to start the cafe boom. The only criticism I have is the lack of a balancer, which does cause some vibration on long highway trips.

Very solid machine

The XSR line of Yamaha may be appealing to some, but I think it's great that Yamaha has kept true to its roots with the single cylinder bike. It's a very solid machine, and I'm sure it will be a great addition to the bike community. It's nice that it has all the necessary features, without any of the added extras.
