        As one of the biggest names in the modern retro game, Yamaha’s XSR line won’t take the recent influx of new competitors sitting down. In response to certain middleweight contenders, the Tuning Fork brand has updated the XSR700 for 2022.

        Feast your eyes on the cafe racer-inspired naked bike, and you’ll immediately notice the heritage color scheme that wouldn’t look out of place in the 70s. Aside from a new color, the XSR700 also gets a new LED headlight significantly more compact than the unit on the outgoing model. Now that the headlight doesn’t stick out as much, the bike gets a snub nose look that many riders will find more appealing.

        Behind the new headlight is a revised inverted LCD gauge pod that has been repositioned to be more readable. Functions can now be cycled through with the left handlebar switches. The switchgear has also been improved to be more user-friendly.

        Upgrades aside, the XSR700 is still the tried and tested formula that riders (us included) have enjoyed and praised. Yamaha’s signature crossplane crank still headlines the 689cc DOHC parallel-twin engine that makes about 72hp and 67Nm of torque.

        Suspension is taken care of by a 41mm conventional telescopic front fork and preload-adjustable rear monoshock. ABS-equipped brakes and Michelin Road 5 tires provide stopping power and grip, respectively.

        MSRP is $8,799, or approximately P443,000. Units will be available in the US this month, with Philippine availability and pricing to follow soon.
