Yamaha’s XSR155 gets the CUSTOM treatment. Turn the mini-XSR into a Scrambler, Café Racer or Tracker.


Following on from the official reveal of Yamaha’s XSR155 in India, the Japanese factory has unveiled three custom versions of its small-capacity neo-retro machine.

As part of the launch event, Yamaha showed off 12 optional parts and accessories for its XSR155 – with the help of a custom Scrambler, Café Racer and Tracker. And we have got our hands on some snaps of the three bikes, courtesy of our pals at Japanese biker magazine YoungMachine.

There’s been no official details about the custom machines, but if you think back to Yamaha’s previous XSR’s and its partnership with Faster Sons, chances are that the bike’s going to prime for some serious customisation when they finally make it to market. We’ve not heard if the new XSR155 will make it over to British shores just yet. If it does, it’ll likely be powered by a 125cc engine rather than the 155cc unit.

SCRAMBLER

We reckon the Scrambler’s probably the least exciting of the three – but that’s only because we’ve seen so many of them over the last few years. It’s still pretty cool though. It’s been kitted out with a small tank, a single seat and an upswept exhaust. It also gets some wire spoked wheels and knobbly tyres.

CAFÉ RACER

Check out the café racer custom. How cool is this? With its swooping front fairing, single seat and slick tyres, it looks like a serious retro racer. Awesome.

TRACKER

We love this one. Taking inspiration from Kenny Roberts Jr’s TZ750 flat-tracker – the XSR155 street tracker is a great looking little bike. With its yellow, black and white paint job, twin spar frame and flat tracker tyres, we reckon it looks the business.
