Custom-styled motorcycles are all the rave nowadays, and more the most recent manufacturer to join the bandwagon is Yamaha, with the XSR700 – a custom-style edition of the MT-07 which has just been officially revealed yesterday.


According to Yamaha, the XSR700 is the production version of the MT07 that was restyled by renowned Japanese custom bike builder Shinya Kimura. The company added that this model adds to the brand’s range of custom-style ‘Faster Sons’ special editions, which also includes the XJR1300 Racer and XV950 Racer.


Unlike the traditional looking naked XJR1300 and XV950 cruiser, the XSR700 is the first to stem from a contemporary-styled model. Rumour has it that Yamaha might even consider the R1 for the custom treatment.

* Two-texture leather seat
* Aluminium retro fuel tank
* Aluminium fender
* Aluminium headlight bracket
* Wide tapered back handlebars
* Mesh side panels
* Stubby rear muffler
* Embroidered seat logo
