I absolutely love this bike. The best compliment is in a group ride, someone comes up and says "what in the world is that?" Not a lot of these around in the States.
That’s exactly what struck me when I saw mine and a ‘21 at the dealer last week, and those were my first words (“Ooooooo, what is that one?!”). I went to the dealer with every intention of getting a Rebel 1100 until I saw my first XSR “in the wild” and it was love at first sight. The best part is that there are other bikes in the Yamaha line that have compatible parts, so our “rare” bikes aren’t awful to work on.

Just a sweet bike with the right ergos for me, and enough “heritage” in the “heritage sport” that my wife didn’t even squeak at me getting a sport bike. (To be fair though, she doesn’t ride and I probably could have slipped any naked bike past her since fairings are what equal “crotch rocket death machines” in her eyes)

Looking forward to getting some more riding in soon.
