2016 Yamaha XSR700 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Retro cool, accessible and affordable

The retro styled XSR700 captures everything cool about iconic motorcycles with the latest technology and ride experience. The perfect handling bike for new riders and an expression of the best of motorcycling for experienced riders.

The XSR delivers on its promise. Building on Yamaha’s Faster Sons philosophy it pays homage to design icons of Yamaha’s past such as the XS650 whilst showcasing the best of tomorrow’s technical features.

Underneath the XS650 inspired design this retro street bike comes with the latest chassis technology.

Light and agile, it’s a class leading package guaranteed to deliver.

 

Retro style with high quality parts

With its two-texture leather seat and easily customizable sub-frame, aluminium tank, vintage style headlight and taillight, the XSR700 pays tribute to iconic bike designs of the past. A super cool mesh cover, short muffler and use of high quality aluminium on components such as the front fender stay & radiator cover add visual impact.

Outstanding 689cc inline 2-cylinder engine

What gives the new XSR700 such a special character is its class leading 689cc inline 2-cylinder engine, developed using Yamaha's 'crossplane philosophy'. With an uneven firing interval, the 270-degree crank gives a strong feeling of acceleration and great traction, and the deep linear torque ensures outstanding performance.

Light and slim tubular backbone frame

For easy manoeuvrability and sharp agility, the new XSR700 runs with a light, slim steel and easy customizable backbone-type frame under the retro body that utilizes the 689cc engine as a stressed member. Combined with its compact wheelbase and plush suspension systems, 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 a genuine retro cool with hints of vintage styling without compromising on riding control.

Chassis dimensions and weight distribution have been carefully set to maximize the enjoyment felt during acceleration and give the rider a connected feel with the motorcycle.

Responsive performance, retro style and affordable

The new XSR700’s liquid-cooled engine and lightweight backbone frame blends perfectly with its retro cool, vintage styling. The impressive performance delivers an engaging riding experience for both new and experienced riders at an affordable price.

Link-type Monocross rear suspension
The link-type Monocross rear suspension system features a horizontal shock that is mounted directly to the engine’s crankcase to save space and enhance chassis performance. And for a more enjoyable feeling when accelerating, the XSR700 is fitted with a short 530mm swing arm that enhances the connected feeling between the rider and bike.
