Funky Option Number 2 – 2018 XSR700

    In a not surprising move, Yamaha has added a smaller XSR model to the company line-up for 2018. The XSR700, coming in at a MSRP of $9599, utilizes the FZ07 platform to create a heritage sport model similar to but not quiet as striking bike as the original XSR900 which itself was based on the FZ09. The choice may be a difficult one for some riders to make as a mere $1500 separates the two models.
