There is aftermarket stuff to cover it up or change the look.

 

Another thing that would make me buy this bike over the MT09, and pay an extra 40k (1000GBP!), is that it has a round clock over an oblong clock.

Call me old fashioned (again) but i despise modern dashes with that bar graph horrible rev counter thing and awful constantly changing numbers flashing up at me.

Yeah i know the clock is digital on an XSR, but at least it is ROUND.

And the revs sorta follow the circle.

That is a deal breaker on an MT09. revolting dash.

 

Xsr 900 is a lovely bike, sat on one in the manila showroom few days ago and it feels just about perfect- ....but arrived too late to get a test ride! Gf didn't like it so that's another bonus! 

 

Didn't get the same warm fuzzy feeling from the mt-09 and there was no mt-10 in stock to try, not so keen on the funky orange wheels but it wouldn't cost a fortune to powder coat them black or something 

 

If your tall the tracer/fz 900 might be a better fit, the Xsr900 isn't as big as I thought it would be and I'm only 6'

 

They also had a 1200 super tenere with full touring racks and boxes on a platform, looks huge but i have a gsx 1250  i don't want to part with... 

 

So many cool bikes, so little time...

@thaiguzzi did the deal go through? If so, how do you like the bike? Also interested if you ever got around to testing the Honda.

Yes the deal is done and the bike is mine.

I love it, the most powerful bike I ever owned but I fell very comfortable riding it; meaning it's not crazy powerful but manageable, especially with the different riding modes and traction control. I keep it in normal riding mode and traction control in "2" until I fell I know the bike better.

No I lost interest in the Honda and never tried it.

Congrats on the new bike. Am sure you will enjoy it. I think it was a very good decision to get something from the dark side while you can still handle the rush and the deal seemed great, considering the top notch upgrades you got with it.

 

There'll always be a time for a retro bike in a few more years 🙂

Go for it, the engine is just awesome and soo much lighter than Versys. I think the MT09 comes with quick shifting fitted, something I looking at fit on mine at some stage.
