The XSR700 makes a serious statement. Designed to take a timeless feel built on historical icons, matched with tomorrow?s technology for a pure, entertaining riding experience. With deep torque and a super agile chassis, it?s for those who appreciate heritage and love to ride. The cutting edge 689cc inline 2-cylinder engine features our special ‘cross plane philosophy’ enabling it to develop linear torque for outstanding acceleration. The retro styled XSR700 also benefits from a tight and lightweight chassis for outstanding agility and handling. The XSR700 takes the best of design from Yamaha?s history in homage to the past but is very much the motorcycle of tomorrow.
