XSR700 - tomorrow's technology, yesterday.
OUTSTANDING 2-CYLINDER ENGINE
What gives the new XSR700 such a special character is its 655cc 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.
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 Heritage White and a more elegant Heritage Black combination.
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.
For easy maneuverability and sharp agility, the new XSR700 runs with a light, slim steel and easy customisable backbone-type frame under the retro body that utilises the 655cc 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.
The XSR700 delivers a genuine retro coolness 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.
