    Light, compact and agile

    Weighing in at just 186kg wet, the XSR700 Legacy is one of the lightest scramblers in the category.

    Best-selling torque-rich engine

    Its handsome good looks are most definitely inspired by another era, but the XSR700 Legacy’s driving force is supplied by one of the most successful motorcycle engines of all time. Featuring Yamaha’s special torque-boosting crossplane technology, the 690cc EU5 2-cylinder engine gives you outstanding acceleration in every gear for one of the most responsive and enjoyable riding experiences you’ll find on any bike.

    Classic scrambler design

    Inspired by some of Yamaha’s most iconic bikes from the past, the XSR700 Legacy’s classic scrambler design looks just as good today as it did all those years ago. Key features such as the flat profile seat, black rubber fork gaiters and the compact round headlight and taillight – as well as the wide braced handlebars and 2-into-1 exhaust pipe with upswept muffler – combine authentic scrambler looks with the very latest lightweight materials and reliable Yamaha technology.

    Braced scrambler handlebars, grips and chunky footrests

    The black braced handlebars give an upright riding position and are wider than standard so that you can benefit from increased turning power in congested traffic and when you’re negotiating gravel tracks in the countryside. And to complement the timeless scrambler style the XSR700 Legacy features chunky footrests and handlebar grips that look great and deliver a comfortable ride.

    High-tech XSR family lighting

    Yamaha’s XSR family of Sport Heritage bikes runs from 125cc through to 890cc, and each model shares the same pure DNA that makes them stand out. One of the shared family characteristics is the compact round LED headlight and circular LED taillight that provide high levels of visibility while also forming an integral part of the bike’s timeless character.

    Forward-mounted round LCD meter

    With its classic round shape combined with contemporary features, the LCD instruments are mounted on an offset bracket in a forward position for improved clarity and visibility. Finished in all black, the meter assembly gives this Sport Heritage scrambler a rugged and minimalist ‘snub nose’ look that perfectly matches its down to earth character.

    Once you’re riding the XSR700 Legacy you’ll find yourself exploring new places you’ve never been before.
