Based on the popular MT-07, the XSR700 is a beautiful blend of twin cylinder performance and eye catching "authentic sports" styling. The XSR incorporates most of the MT-07's key features including ABS equipped brakes. A natural riding position offers solid riding comfort while the short swingarm and lightweight design highlights the more serious sports side of the XSR. Tasty, timeless styling combined with plenty of Yamaha's latest technologies, the XSR is guaranteed to provide a fun, exciting ride.
Liquid-cooled, 689cc in-line twin cylinder fuel-injected engine with a downdraft intake. The engine has been tuned to provide solid low to mid-range torque with linear throttle response.
You won't find a lot of plastic parts on the XSR700. The "authentic sports" styling highlights Yamaha's long racing heritage, but don't be fooled, there is plenty of cutting edge technology under the aluminum shrouded fuel tank.
Multifunction, digital instrument displays all the info discerning sport riders demand. From a bar style tach to gear position indicator, to instant & average fuel economy, this classic round design liquid crystal instrument adds function and style.
The engine has been tuned to provide plenty of low & mid-range torque with very linear throttle response. This engine has an incredible reliability record and is designed to maximize riding fun in the real world.
4-valve, downdraft style combustion chamber with 11.5:1 compression ratio.
excellent torque output... especially in the low to mid rpm range
4-valve design maximizes flow into & out of combustion chamber
31.5 mm intake & 26.5 mm exhaust valves
stainless steel valves feature an Isonite surface treatment & carburized tips for excellent durability & wear resistance
Valve adjustment intervals are every 42,000 kms.
Lightweight hollow camshafts.
cam profiles are designed to accentuate low to mid-range torque & power in the most commonly used rpm range (3,000 to 6,500 rpm).
270 degree "CrossPlane Concept" crankshaft with an "uneven" firing order provides a strong feeling of acceleration & great traction.
design reduces inertia torque while emphasizing linear torque
design has been optimized to achieve strong torque over a broad rpm range
CP Concept offers "ride ability that allows the rider to control the machine at will."
engine design allows a whole new level of "rider - machine communication"
Lightweight gear driven "coupling force balancer" reduces engine vibration for excellent comfort.
High tech, "fracture split" connecting rods feature a "nut less" design.
lower end "cap" of the rod is made from the same piece of material as the upper portion; the 2 pieces are "split" apart using a special fracturing process & then machined
design aids in establishing true big end roundness & greater precision in con rod dimensions for excellent durability despite the high horsepower loads
design aids in fast engine response & reduces mechanical vibration
Direct ceramic composite plated cylinder uses "liner less" bores.
ceramic coating sprayed directly on the aluminum block, eliminating the liner & reducing weight
excellent heat dissipation for consistent power delivery
coating enhances the thin film of oil between the cylinder & piston, reducing friction & increasing power
Offset cylinder design.
cylinder is "offset" relative to the crank (toward exhaust side)
reduces frictional losses between the pistons & cylinder wall during the power stroke for improved power output & excellent fuel economy
One-piece cylinder and upper crankcase assembly.
superior engine & chassis rigidity (engine is a stressed member)
engine is a stressed member for increased chassis rigidity
"Closed loop" 38 mm Mikuni throttle body fuel injection system.
system uses throttle position sensor (TPS) & idle speed controller (ISC)
12 hole injectors for optimum fuel atomization
system is "tuned" to provide excellent "ride ability" & "linear" throttle control.
"closed loop system" uses an oxygen sensor to "sniff" spent exhaust & automatically adjust the fuel / air ratio for reduced emissions
fuel injection benefits include choke-free starting, steady idling during warm up, excellent fuel economy & reduced emissions
Compact Electronic Control Unit (ECU).
utilizes a powerful 32-bit processor for fast control of the injection & ignition processes
compact design reduces weight.
Air box design features dual intakes.
reduces intake noise
viscous paper type air filter is utilized
Compact, 6-speed transmission.
Tri-axis design "stacks" input/output shafts centralizing mass
overall engine size is shorter front to back allowing the engineers the freedom to place the engine in the frame for optimum front to rear weight balance
transmission ratios are designed to suit the character (torque & power) of the engine
specially chosen gear ratios means fewer gear changes
6th gear is an over drive gear reducing engine rpms at highway speeds for a comfortable ride
Compact, clutch design with light clutch lever pull.
Stylish, compact, low mounted, 2 into 1 exhaust system.
front rim size is MT3.50-17 fitted with a 120/70R17 tubeless tire
rear rim size is MT5.50-17 fitted with a 180/55R17 tubeless tire
Conventional, tapered handlebar.
