Yamaha XSR700

Still no prices yet for the new Yamaha XSR700, the bike that's supposed to pick up where the fabled XS650 left off way back in 1985.

 

But this new funky Yam is a lot closer to the extant MT-07 by borrowing the engine and transplanting it into a street roadster. Features include a leather saddle, an ally fuel tank & ally front mudguard, an "old school" headlight, and ABS.

 

XSR700 Yamaha

Yamaha dealers tell us that they're expecting a strong demand for the XSR and for the dozens of accessories in the pipeline. The first machines could be on sale in January 2016.

 

The engine dimensions of this liquid-cooled DOHC parallel twin are 80mm bore x 68.6mm stroke giving 689cc. The crank has a 270-degree throw. The discs are wavy. Power is said to be 74.8hp (55.0 kW) @ 9,000 rpm. Rock'n'roll.
