Verdict On Yamaha XSR700
XSR700 is mostly based on its successful naked sibling the Yamaha MT 07, however, it is a lot different in terms of engine characteristics and rideability. The Yamaha XSR700 has a taller & wider stance and swept-back handlebars, that gives the rider a proper upright riding position. The parallel-twin motor packs a punch and the power delivery is linear, which allows the rider to use the entire rev band smoothly.
It has a compact design and shorter wheelbase than its naked sibling MT07, which makes it nimble and easy to handle. The front forks are now on the stiffer side as compared to the old model. Dual 282mm front disc brakes provide adequate stopping power and now it comes with dual-channel ABS as standard. Overall the new Yamaha XSR700 is a good retro-inspired middleweight bike that packs a punch.
It consumes 4.3 Liters of fuel per 100 KM.
The saddle height of XSR700 is 835 MM.
