2022 Yamaha XSR700: The XSR Introduction

With the XSR900 getting what seemed like a complete redesign from the ground up, its smaller brother – the XSR700 – will not be seeing any glaring changes for Yamaha’s 2022 model year. This isn’t a bad thing, however, as the XSR700 is a tried-and-true neo-retro sportster derived from the strong DNA of the MT-07.

As a fellow writer for WebBikeWorld, Simon, put it best: the 2022 Yamaha XSR700 is almost entirely a modified MT-07 wearing some new clothes.

For riders seeing the thrills of a modern hyper-naked motorcycle model in a capable middleweight form factor designed with a retro-inspired paintbrush, the XSR700 is most likely your final destination as nobody does it better than Yamaha Motorcycles.

Although this beast’s 689cc mill produces an ample 74 horsepower and 50 lb-ft modern of torque, it still stays grounded to echos of a distant past thanks to its mid-to-late 1970s Japanese styling cues. A big single headlamp, and body lines that are easy on the eyes.

Despite resembling fine wine, you can still expect all the modern accoutrements that you would expect from a modern bike such as this. Traction control, ABS, semi-adjustable suspension, and ride-by-wire throttle control are all present on this neo-retro Japanese naked.

The 2022 Yamaha XSR700 starts at $8,799 USD / $10,399 CAD

2022 Yamaha XSR700 Features

TOP FEATURES

  • Standout Style
    The XSR700 blends Yamaha’s world-class engineering with timeless style, creating a new type of machine for riders looking for an authentic and honest motorcycle that doesn’t sacrifice performance. Drawing influence from Yamaha’s classic “XS” series of motorcycles, the XSR oozes class with its exposed aluminum details, retro-influenced bodywork, stepped seat and custom lighting and instrumentation.
  • Updated LED Headlight
    New for 2022, lighting is improved with an all-new heritage-inspired round LED headlight. New integrated headlight stays now connect into the fork shrouds for a more compact front expression and a sleeker ‘snub-nose’ look.
  • Revised Cockpit Layout
    New for 2022, the cockpit layout is revised with the inverted LCD meter repositioned for improved visibility. Switchgear is also upgraded, making them more user-friendly and LCD meter information is now controllable from the left handlebar switch.
  • Advanced Crossplane Crankshaft Concept Engine
    The compact two-cylinder engine provides a unique power character with its outstanding torque and throttle response and complemented with strong high-rpm pulling power. It also features Yamaha’s “Crossplane Concept” 270-degree crank that provides linear torque development in response to the rider’s throttle input.
  • Powerful Braking with ABS
    The XSR700 provides exceptional and confident braking power thanks to its modern brake components which are backed up by the security of ABS. New for 2022, larger 298mm front disks further enhance performance.
  • Compact, Sporty Chassis
    The narrow frame design features sport-oriented geometry to achieve light and nimble handling and is aided by the minimalist 410-pound wet weight and refined ergonomics.

ENGINE

  • Advanced Twin Cylinder Engine
    The XSR700 features a compact 689cc liquid-cooled, inline twin-cylinder, DOHC engine with fuel injection. This engine provides a unique power character with its outstanding low- to mid-range torque and very linear throttle response and complemented with strong high-rpm pulling power. This motor develops 50 foot-pounds of torque and is designed to maximize riding excitement in the real world.
  • Crossplane Crankshaft Concept
    The two-cylinder engine features Yamaha’s “Crossplane Concept” 270 degree crank that provides linear torque development in response to the rider’s throttle input. The CP2 engine is also light, slim and compact and offers an excellent level of rider-to-machine communication.
  • Offset Cylinder Block
    The paired cylinders of the XSR engine are shifted slightly forward compared to the center of the crankshaft. This reduces drag during each combustion stroke of the pistons and improves efficiency.
  • Vibration-Reducing Counterbalancer
    To reduce vibration and provide a smooth, modern engine character, the motor uses a geared counterbalancer that is mounted low and forward on the engine.
  • Refined, Efficient Fuel Injection
    Electronic fuel injection settings deliver a smooth throttle response to enhance riding enjoyment from the open roads to the urban sprawl. The system delivers outstanding torque in the low- and mid-rpm range along with exciting acceleration in the upper rpm range. Combined with the efficient overall engine design, the XSR700 delivers an exceptional 58 mpg.
  • Compact Six-Speed Transmission
    The XSR700’s six-speed transmission takes full advantage of the low-to- mid-range torque and excellent response of the twin-cylinder motor while further enhancing the compact engine design thanks to triangulated input and outputs shafts.

CHASSIS/SUSPENSION

  • Standout Style
    The XSR700 blends Yamaha’s world-class engineering with timeless style, creating a new type of machine for riders looking for an authentic and honest motorcycle that doesn’t sacrifice performance. Drawing influence from Yamaha’s classic “XS” series of motorcycles, the XSR oozes class with its exposed aluminum details, retro-influenced bodywork, stepped seat and custom lighting and instrumentation.
  • Compact, Sporty Chassis
    A lightweight diamond-type high tensile steel frame provides an optimized rigidity balance for light, agile handling and stability. The engine is a stressed member of the chassis which allows for a lighter, more compact main frame design.
  • Street-Focused Suspension
    The 41mm front fork and link-type Monocross rear shock each provide 5.1 inches of suspension travel and are tuned to provide a balance of comfort and control, making it ideal for the street. The shock uses an almost horizontal alignment which helps make the chassis much more compact while rear spring preload adjustment allows the rider to tailor the suspension to match rider weight or load.
  • Powerful Braking with ABS
    The XSR700 provides strong, controllable braking thanks to its modern braking components. New for 2022, the powerful four-piston calipers are now paired with larger 298mm front brake discs for enhanced performance. ABS comes standard to prevent wheel lock under hard deceleration.
  • Lightweight Wheels & Michelin Road 5 Tires
    Lightweight 10-spoke cast aluminum wheels are now fitted with Michelin Road 5 tires, 120/70ZR17 front and 180/55ZR17 rear, for confident handling and excellent grip in a variety of conditions.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

  • Advanced Instrumentation
    The round LCD panel features a ton of information: digital tachometer, speedometer, gear position, eco mode indicator, ambient and coolant temperature, a fuel gauge and range of trip computer functions including a clock, instant and average fuel consumption, fuel reserve trip meter and the usual trip meters.
  • Updated LED Headlight
    New for 2022, lighting is improved with an all-new heritage-inspired round LED headlight. New integrated headlight stays now connect into the fork shrouds for a more compact front expression and a sleeker ‘snub-nose’ look.
  • Classically-styled Modern LED Lighting
    Up front, lighting is improved with an all-new heritage-inspired round LED headlight, providing both style and illumination in equal measure. A round all-LED tail and brake light is mounted above the rear fender and turn signals are also compact, stylish LEDs.
  • Stylish & Ergonomic Fuel Tank
    A compact 3.7 gallon fuel tank is shrouded by beautifully shaped, hand-finished aluminum side covers for a timeless design.
  • Casual but Sporty Ergonomics
    A tall, wide handlebar, stitched two-level seat and perfectly placed foot controls provide a comfortable upright riding position that is ideal for either urban traffic or hustling down a twisty road.
  • Unique XSR700 Detailing
    Every aspect of the XSR700 shows Yamaha’s attention to detail: the single-piece stitched saddle, the classic teardrop mirrors with excellent rearward visibility, the compact radiator which is flanked by exposed aluminum covers, a removable subframe that simplifies customization, and the naked aluminum accents and fender mount. The XSR700 demands a second look, every time.

NEW FOR 2022
