Retro Triple

Taking its name and inspiration from Yamaha’s iconic 1970s XS1, this stunning model grabs the high torque three cylinder motor and agility of the MT-09 and gives in a whole new twist. The character and mind expanding performance of the 09 is retained in a stylish package that oozes timeless authenticity.

The 847cc 3-cylinder engine is equipped with a traction control system and an assist and slipper clutch to enhance the slightly more upright and refined riding experience. Yet the ‘R’ in the model name is there to highlight the link to Yamaha’s sport bike heritage. Which means that instant torque and agile handling not only makes urban riding fun but builds anticipation for those Sunday morning blasts.
