2018 Yamaha XSR700 First Look
Sep 22, 2017
  1. The 1970 Yamaha XS650 was an inspiration for the 2018 Yamaha XSR700. Like the XSR700, the XS650 was a four-stroke parallel twin—the first from Yamaha.

  2. Everything you liked about the performance of the FZ-07 is still there. From the Crossplane Concept 270-degree crank powerplant to a wet weight of just over 400 pounds, the 2018 Yamaha XSR700 is an FZ-07 ABS reskinned.

  3. The XSR700 gets its own tires. While the FZ-07 is shod with Michelin Pilot Road 3 rubber, the XSR700 gets retro-styled Pirelli Phantom Sportcomp tires. We’ll see if that changes the handing.
