2016 Yamaha XSR700

Dec 4, 2019

Inspired by the beloved Ducati Scrambler, Yamaha set out to build their own retro-styled 2-wheeler – and they hit an absolute home run. Behold the 216 Yamaha XSR700.

The bike looks stellar with its single round headlamp out front and matching LED tail lamp out back paired with lower vents, side panels, and a whole lot more. And while the aesthetics are inspired from bikes of yesteryear, Yamaha made sure the tech was modern day without ruining that retro look. A lone round LCD gauge sits at the center of the handlebars, displaying a slew of information, while an onboard tool kit sits neatly under that dual-textured seat. The bike has a dry weight of 410 pounds, is powered by a 700cc inline 2-cylinder engine rated at 73.8 horsepower and 50.2 lb-ft of torque, with the ability to net riders just under 55 miles per gallon. It’s also been outfitted with dual, four-piston brakes with ABS. No price has been revealed at this point, but early talks are putting this thing in the ballpark of $7,500 or so – plus options and accessories. Watch the video below.
