  • Modern throwback.

    This is the XSR900. And yes, you’re right - it’s the charismatic three-cylinder MT-09 wearing it’s dad’s flares and floppy-collared shirt. Chassis and engine are MT-09, with the 2016 updates of a slipper-assist light-action clutch and three-level traction control. For the XSR the MT’s contemporary styling is swapped for round lights, aluminium bodywork and round instruments. ‘To reflect Yamaha’s sporty DNA, its history and its iconic motorcycles of the past,’ they say. Hmm. Don’t know about all that, but the 900 pulls it off. You could predict the XSR. After retrofying the MT-07 into the XSR700 (see last issue) this larger ‘Faster Sons’ variant was a given, especially after Yamaha’s video of the ‘Faster Wasp’ MT-09 flattracker by US custom bloke Roland Sands. Let’s hope the trim on the front of his tank makes the accessory list, to give the same flat-tank profile. In other MT-related news, there’s now an MT-03. Basically a naked YZF-R3 sportsbike for A2 licence holders, with funky digi dash, LED lights and crisp lines, it’s not quite a modern LC... but looks good.

  • PorsChe Goes tesla HUntinG.

    The green light has been given to the Porsche Mission E project, following overwhelming response to its debut at the Frankfurt motor show last September. Due to be launched at the end of the decade, the newcomer will be the first 100 per cent electrically powered Porsche in the company’s history. More than 10,000 jobs will be created in Stuttgart, with in excess of half a billion pounds set to be invested, including a new assembly line and paint shop. The current engine factory will be expanded to allow production of electric motors, and the company’s research and development in Weissach will see extra cash ploughed into it. If the production car remains true to the motor show concept car, it will be a four-door, four-seat vehicle, with a maximum power output of more than 590bhp. Acceleration to 62mph will be under 3.5 seconds, and the car will have a driving range of more than 500 miles. It’s intended that the battery pack will be rechargeable back up to 80 per cent of its capacity in just 15 minutes, using a specially developed 800- volt charger unit. Wireless inductive charging will also be an optional extra.
