Classic cool scrambler with modern technology

Back in the late 1970s, Yamaha changed the face of the motorcycle world with the XT500. Light, simple and fun to ride, it became an instant best seller, and its legendary status continues to this day.

Featuring an iconic colour scheme and fitted with a range of exclusive scrambler equipment, the new XSR700 XTribute pays homage to the XT, and recaptures the fundamental thrills and enjoyment that you’re looking for in a bike.

Its special features include an XT-style flat seat and chunky footrests, as well as off-road handlebars and fork gaiters that complement its timeless scrambler style. Thanks to its 689cc, inline, 2-cylinder engine and lightweight chassis, the power and technology of the new XSR700 XTribute leaves a lasting impression.

Inspired by the
iconic XT500

Whether you’re new to bikes or you’ve been around for a while, you’ve probably heard about the iconic XT500, Yamaha’s best-selling model from the 1970s and 80s. Just like the original XT, the new XSR700 XTribute is light, powerful and easy to ride – along with its classic colours inspired by the XT500 and special off-road components, it pays homage to an all-time great.

Off-road handlebars
and footrests

Light, nimble and compact – the XSR700XTribute delivers strong, linear power, making it the perfect bike to fight your way through the urban jungle. Its off-road handlebars ensure a dominant upright position for the rider and make it much easier to manoeuvre in tight situations – added to by the rugged scrambler feel of its chunky footrests.

Retro XT-inspired
colours and graphics

Introduced in 1976, the original XT500 was an instant success, and became one of the most popular Yamaha models of all time. To celebrate its legendary status, Yamaha has taken the XT’s famous colour scheme and adapted it to suit the new XSR700 XTribute. Because unique style never goes out of fashion.

Special flat seat
and fork gaiters

Yamaha’s designers have paid close attention to every detail on the XSR700 XTribute to ensure that it respects and reflects the character of the XT500. The long flat seat is true to the original design and gives you a superbly comfortable ride. And to reinforce the timeless retro look, the forks feature authentic rubber gaiters and black upper fork covers.

Block pattern Pirelli
MT60RS tyres

This Sport Heritage bike is equipped with Pirelli MT60RS tyres that provide excellent grip and handling on both streets and dirt roads. Fitted to lightweight 10-spoke cast wheels, the block pattern 180/55-17 rear tyre and 120/70-217 front tyre add to the urban scrambler look.

Scrambler style with
modern technology

The real beauty of the new retro-look XSR700 XTribute is its blend of a cool classic scrambler with the most advanced engine and chassis technology. The powerful and economical engine is one of Yamaha’s most versatile and enjoyable powerplants, combined with a compact, agile and lightweight chassis that gives riders the ultimate brew of classic and modern.

Strong performance
and easy handling

Strong performance and easy handling are the characteristics that made the original XT500 one of the all-time greats in the world of motorcycling. Move the clock forward 40 years and witness how the XSR700 XTribute is built to deliver new levels of performance and handling that make it one of today’s most exciting, enjoyable and rewarding bikes in any class.

Special instruments
and controls

Just about anywhere you look on this classic scrambler you’ll see a special part that’s exclusive to this model. The dark colour of the instruments and black handlebar control levers enhance the retro feel, while the special radiator and frame covers add to the overall sense of quality that makes the XSR700 XTribute one of the most desirable middleweights on the street.

689cc 2-cylinder
high-torque engine

Just as the original XT engine defined the essential spirit of the bike, the XSR700 XTribute’s powerful and economical engine elevates this motorcycle to a class of its own. Capable of strong linear torque that delivers thrilling acceleration and instant response, the 689cc 2-cylinder powerplant is one of the most popular and successful designs on the road today.

Optional Akrapovič
high-level exhaust

Optional equipment for the XSR700 XTribute includes a high level 2-into-1 Akrapovič exhaust with a more radical look and a gruff exhaust note. Finished in black, it echoes the style of the very first XT500, showcases the concept of the urban scrambler and accentuates the premium specification and character of this new Faster Sons model.
