The inherent risks taken by heritage companies when returning to classic designs is inescapable, as through time, the process has become quite dull and uninteresting. However, Yamaha looks to prove doubters wrong with its new cafe-inspired motorcycle, the XSR700. In a short promotional clip, the company depicts Japanese-born custom motorcycle builder Shinya Kimura meticulously crafting the XSR700, passing a proverbial torch to a young apprentice. Already receiving high-praise from riders who’ve had the opportunity to test it, the two-wheeled racer avoids the dangerous clichés attached with retro-built automobiles, harmoniously blending high-performance parts with a clean outer-aesthetic, which includes a two-texture leather seat, an aluminum fender, headlight brackets and fuel tank, mesh side panels, exposed engine, a shorter exhaust can and a slew of other accessories. Available in Forest Green and Garage Silver, the XSR700 will go on sale in Europe this November along with its full specs, for a yet-to-be-announced price.
