The 2021 Yamaha XSR700 Brings Retro Class to the Modern Era

Like its bigger brother, the XSR900, the 2021 Yamaha XSR700 is almost entirely a modified MT-07 wearing some new clothes. Also, like it’s bigger brother, the 2021 model uses a parallel-twin engine delivering 689cc’s with 74 HP and 50 lb-ft of torque.

Unlike its bigger brother, however, the XSR700 is not meant to be reminiscent of the cafe racers of yesteryear. The bike is shaped and clothed much like a Japanese sports motorcycle of the mid- to late-1970s, and is meant to evoke, for better or worse, the UJM style sport bikes of the era.

Yamaha’s design maintains all the good tech from the MT-07 though. Throttle-by-wire, traction control, dual-zone ABS, semi-adjustable suspension, and the excellent agility the hypernaked/streetfighter cousin provides.

The 2021 Yamaha XSR700 starts at $8,499 USD / $9,699 CAD.
