MCN says that the bike will be available in UK in January 2016. That seems good value to me. They are reporting a test ride in 4th November issue.
The Ducati has been a sales smash success in the US...WE'VE seen our friends in Bologna doing well so we're jumping on the hipster band wagon,' joked Shun Miyazawa, Yamaha's project manager during the presentation of the XSR700. The joke fell flat... perhaps because there's truth said in jest.
I won't buy an ugly bike, even if everything else checks out. I care what my "look" is when I go out. Obviously that is not the most important thing by any means, but I don't really like the look of these super speedy sport bikes very much.It's mostly about the handling, what you want the bike for and how it rides these says. Sure sports bikes look cool but I'd rather have a comfortable bike for long trips and it's cheap!
Same here. For me though what ever is ugly about it has to be what can be changed to my liking easily and that's what really matters overall.I won't buy an ugly bike, even if everything else checks out.

Yup, with that allowing them to create an easier lever for consumer to enter it's a win win for those that want more than stock.That's why Ducati Scrambler is so successful. It looks nice and highly customize-able.
I'm sure Yamaha sees that there's a market so why won't they bring the xsr700 here? It's nice looking at a competitive price and it performs well according to the reviews.
Awesome, can't wait to see event coverage.Not sure about the UK but I know that the xsr700 will be in France dealerships by December 17. 200 Yamaha dealerships in France are having a launch party on that day. No idea what it entails but there should be a xsr700 on the floor by then.
I paid that for mine from J&S motorcycles in Doncaster back in April and that was the cheapest i'd seen it anywhere.Seems that a few UK dealers are discounting new XSRs ....Wigan Yamaha are advertising them at £5995. My local dealer in Exeter agreed to match it. With the pound in freefall, you'd better act quickly!
