2022 Yamaha XSR700 First Look Preview

The new 2022 Yamaha XSR700 will hit dealerships in December. (Yamaha/)

Yamaha focused a lot of attention on its flagship Sport Heritage XSR900 for 2022, so it’s not surprising that the midsize XSR700 gets only minor tweaks for the coming model year. That being said, it’s more love than the bike got last year, when the only update of note was a bold new color scheme.

At the top of the list is a refined cockpit layout, highlighted by the repositioned LCD instrument panel. Yamaha updated placement to make it easier for riders to view information on the go. The bike also gets a new switch gear with display information now adjustable from the left handlebar.

The XSR700 naked will pack a larger front brake disc, up from 282mm to 298mm, and also carry a new LED headlight that connects to the fork shrouds. Yamaha made this move to refine the look of the front end, in an effort to make everything a little more compact and tidy. The radiator sports new side covers as well.

All other elements, from the 698cc DOHC inline-twin engine to the chassis setup and electronics package, remain unchanged from last year’s model.
