Retro style with high quality parts
With its two-texture leather seat and easily customisable 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 components such as the front mudguard stay and radiator cover add visual impact.
Outstanding 689cc, inline 2-cylinder, EU5 engine
What gives the XSR700 such a special character is its class leading 689cc, inline 2-cylinder, EU5 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 XSR700 runs with a light, slim steel and easy customisable backbone-type frame under the retro body that utilises the 689cc EU5 engine as a stressed member. Combined with its compact wheelbase and plush 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 a 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.
Responsive performance, retro style and affordable
The XSR700’s liquid-cooled EU5 engine and lightweight backbone frame blend 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 530 mm swing arm that enhances the connected feeling between the rider and bike.
Wave discs & mono block calipers and ABS
The vintage style of the XSR700 is matched with a modern ABS braking system for total riding enjoyment, including dual 282 mm wave discs and 4-pot calipers at the front for maximum stopping power. Pirelli Phantom tyres with authentic pattern wrap around lightweight 10-spoke aluminium wheels to deliver real street performance.
The easy to read, retro-styled speedometer is mounted directly on top of the tapered handlebars to give the rider a clear view of the road ahead.
