The Racing Red colour comes with a vertical white stripe on the tank of the Yamaha XSR900. The Brilliant Red colour scheme on the Yamaha XSR700 is a darker shade than the 900’s. There’s a white stripe running along the length of the tank, with white fenders. The new colour scheme pays homage to the Yamaha XS650 of late 1960’s.
