Yamaha pay tribute to RD250LC with new XSR900 livery

Yamaha have updated their naked retro XSR range for 2020 with two new liveries paying tribute to the Japanese firm's rich heritage.

Consisting of the MT-07-derived XSR700 and MT-09-inspired XSR900, both bikes will be available in a new 'Dynamic White' design, which celebrates Yamaha's historic racing success with a red, black and white fuel tank cover and red mudguard.

Completing the look is a set of gold rims, which also feature on a second colourway, specifically made for the larger-capacity, three-cylinder XSR900.

Known as '80 Black', the scheme is inspired by Yamaha's iconic RD250LC liquid-cooled two-stroke, which spawned the riding career of countless enthusiasts in the 1980s and is coated in a mixture of black, red and gold across the fuel tank and side covers below the black seat.

Away from the new colours, the 900 is also available in 'Garage Metal' and the 700 can be purchased in a 'Tech Black.'
