An Italian production butch cafe-racer. A match made in heaven.

When the best of two worlds meet, something spectacular is always bound to happen. And this is what the Yamaha XSR900 Abarth all about. The child of the Japanese Blue team and the Italian powerhouse has surfaced, and it looks absolutely stunning.

Abarth, an Italian tuning brand that turns normal family Fiat cars into their sporty mad-runner nemesis has for the first time tried their hand on motorbikes, thanks to the firm’s association with Yamaha’s MotoGP team. They have collaborated with Yamaha to produce for 2017 a limited-edition "Sport Heritage café racer special" based on Yamaha’s XSR900 847 cc inline-triple neo-retro motorcycle.

It is a lightweight, high-performance retro special whose authentic café racer design reflects the true spirit of the motorcycles in the 60’s era. But make no mistake, it is very much futuristic. This is the perfect blend of ultra-cool retro style with the grunt of a sports racer. And only a limited number of 695 will hit the streets.

Yamaha is reviving the RD 350 legacy

Yamaha is reviving the RD 350 legacy

Folks, the legend is making a comeback.

The Japanese Blue Team was, in fact, the one to give our country its first sports bike. In the 80’s, Yamaha came in with a motorcycle that was going to obliterate the records on any performance charts available at that time. The RD 350. The World’s fastest Indian.

The bike was first assembled in India from 1983 by the Escorts group under the brand name Rajdoot 350 (Hence RD 350), and by the end of 1990, the bike was completely manufactured here in India. This very motorcycle established the Rajdoot/Yamaha as a performance bike manufacturer in India which made the high accelerating, 2 stroke engine that could churn out 30.5 bhp with its 347cc engine. The stock Japanese version, however, made 39-40 bhp with the same power mill.

It was also the first motorcycle to feature a twin barrel exhaust and the famous “Torque Induction” ignition technology of Yamaha that could propel the bike to a cool 150-160 kph and sprint to a 100 kph in under 6 seconds. It became the undisputed king of uncharted territory in India.
