The XSR700 is one of the favourite motorcycles for those riders who seek a rebellious fun machine with a seriously fashionable edge. Great looks inspired by Yamaha’s heritage models combined with the torque rich CP2 engine guarantees an unforgettable ride. Not to mention the hard-to-remove grin on the riders face.
BORN TO CHALLENGE
An accessible motorcycle that is enjoyable for both new and experienced riders. The 2-part frame, tank construction and seat design are still a key factor in the XSR700, safeguarding the easy-to-customise feature the bike is renowned for.
The character of the XSR700 is defined by the sublime combination of a light and agile frame and the torque-rich, playful CP2 engine. The super nimble bike is easy to steer in any setting, from curves and twisty roads to busy city traffic, you’ll have a blast either way.
New XSR Family LED lighting
The XSR700 is fitted with a heritage inspired round LED headlight with a split projector and a semi-circular position lamp. The LED tail light features a classically shaped round form, and the compact LED indicators are more subtly shaped, whilst providing outstanding visibility.
Revised Cockpit layout with integrated headlight stays
Also classically shaped with modern features, the Inverted LCD meter has been placed in a forward position for improved clarity and visibility. The lines and position are designed to match the all new head light, giving the bike a sleeker "snub nose" look on the front end.
Evolved design details
To accompany the all-black handlebar and levers, the switches have received a technical upgrade, making them more user-friendly. Allowing the rider to access the inverted LCD display remotely. The radiator has also received new side cover and the repositioned headlight has new integrated stays to provide a cleaner appearance.
690cc CP2 high-torque EU5 engine
With the increasing maturity of the XSR700 there are several improvements made both in performance and in safety. As with its CP2 brothers the XSR700 is fitted with the EU5 compliant characterful 690cc engine. Refining the rideability of the XSR700 even more – but keeping every bit of fun with the multi-talented engine performance.
Light and slim tubular backbone frame
For easy manoeuvrability and sharp agility, the XSR700 runs with a slim, light steel backbone frame that is easily customisable due to its two piece subframe. Combined with its compact wheelbase and easy natured suspension system, this strong and light chassis gives a responsive and engaging ride.
Engineered for optimum riding enjoyment
This first machine born under the Faster Sons philosophy delivers genuine retro cool with hints of vintage styling without compromising on riding control. Chassis dimensions and weight distribution have been carefully set to maximise the enjoyment felt during acceleration and give the rider a connected feel with the motorcycle.
Confidence inspiring riding experience
To refine the riding performance the XSR700 has been fitted with new, larger 298 mm front brake discs for improved feel and stopping performance, meanwhile the revised front fork and Michelin Road 5 tyres provide enhanced feedback from the road to inspire rider confidence.
Colouring and graphics inspired by Yamaha’s past
The colour schemes were influenced from iconic motorcycles of Yamaha’s rich history. The famous 2-stroke RD350LC from the early eighties provided the inspiration for the modern interpretation of the colour schemes, resulting in the a crisp Historic White and a more elegant Historic Black combination.
