Yamaha has released a cafe-racer inspired XV950 which will go into production, but before you get too excited, this special edition will only be available in Europe. This rather attractive retro Yamaha exhibits a blend between a cafe racer and a ‘low rider’.
In my perfect bike garage there would definitely be a cafe racer of sorts and a modern one is a wise decision as you will have the luxury and comforts of modern tech without the drawbacks of high-maintenance motorcycling of the past. No more greasy hands and carburetor kits lying around the kitchen. However would it be the XV950? Well it sure looks good but I would probably ignore everything I’ve just mentioned and opt for a done up version of a CB750 instead.
