The XSR700 pays homage to the XS650 and was designed by Shinya Kimura, a Japanese builder based out of Los Angeles who works within a Yamaha  design philosophy called “Faster Sons” which is intended to pay tribute to previous Yamaha models while incorporating new technology. The XSR700 joins the SR400 and XJR1300 as well as bikes we are familiar with – the Bolt and VMax – in the European “Sport Heritage” collection. There is no current indication of the bike coming the North America.
