Yamaha has presented the XSR700 Legacy at the EICMA, which is based on MT-07. The scrambler variant differs from the sister model XSR700 XTribute only in details. There is also an XSR125.
700cc twin sisters
The XSR XTribute and the XSR700 Legacy could almost be called twin sisters. Small differences can only be seen in the details, although the XTribute was already introduced in 2018, the Legacy only in 2022.
On the new model, there are no longer any decorative elements on the tank and the Legacy’s LED headlight has been fitted with three crossbars. That’s basically it with the changes.
Otherwise, the familiar features remain, such as the grille in front of the water cooling system, the bellows-equipped telescopic fork, the classically styled seat and the profiled footrests for better grip.
The wheels were covered with Pirelli “MT 60 RS” tires in the 120/70 ZR 17 and 180/55 ZR 17 format.
No technical changes either
There were also no purely technical changes. It remains with the 689cc in-line two-cylinder with 73.4 hp (54 kW) at 8,750 rpm and 67 Nm at 6,500 rpm. With a full 14-liter tank, 190 kg is given as the total weight. Seat height is 855 mm.
