A view of the cover of Young Magazine, showing potentials of what the upcoming rumoured XSR 900 and MotoGP R1M would look like. Media sourced from Top Speed.
Japanese publication Young Machine has just released news that Yamaha is on the cusp of releasing a new retro XSR GP – and judging by how accurate the magazine marque has been in the past, we’re thinking they’re right on the money.
We even have a bit of proof to speed things along.
Well, as of yesterday (via DriveMag), the magazine was right – at least about the R1.
Yamaha unveiled the 50-unit fleet a couple of days ago, showing off a livery of the team’s two racers (Franco Morbidelli and Fabio Quartararo), as well as high-performance Öhlins race suspension, ‘including the FGRT 2 road & track front fork, TTX rear shock, a race specification steering damper and is fitted with a factory kit exhaust.’
What do you think? Is the XSR GP far behind its track-oriented sibling?
Comment down below, and as ever – stay safe on the twisties.
