New XSR900 GP

  • By ALPINE MC
Racing is in Yamaha's DNA. Our rich history on the track is headlined by riders like ‘King’ Kenny Roberts who piloted his YZR500 to a third consecutive title in 1980.

Yamaha went on to win six 500cc Grand Prix titles between 1984 and 1992 - the GP Golden Era that is worth remembering and celebrating.

So for 2024 the nod to Yamaha’s racing tradition takes another leap with the introduction of the new XSR900 GP. This new model pays homage to some of the most celebrated race machines from Yamaha’s illustrious past in a way never seen before in the Sports Heritage range.

Adorned in one of the most iconic Yamaha Grand Prix colours of all time, the XSR900 GP is available in a heritage livery inspired by the machines ridden by legends such as Wayne Rainey to multiple 500cc Grand Prix World Championships, complete with authentic yellow number boards on both front and rear cowlings.

Combining a sense of 1980s Grand Prix nostalgia with the very latest technology including the iconic, torque-rich 890cc CP3 engine, R1-derived six-axis IMU and lean sensitive rider aids, the XSR900 GP combines Yamaha’s Racing history with modern day performance.

The aim was not to create a replica, but instead release a model that pays the utmost respect to the past, while holding its own with the latest in performance and technology. That is the XSR900 GP.

Pricing and availability is currently not set for the Australian market, however more details will be supplied in due course.
