MCN has ridden the XSR700 for the first time.

Unfortunately you'll have to wait until the magazine is out on November 4th to get the full write up.

However Andy does give us some feedback. The XSR700 remains just as agile, fun and engaging as the (FZ)MT-07 its based on. He does mention that the ergonomics have been reworked, resulting in a more upright and comfortable position.

Lastly, Yamaha will be offering some 40 official accessories to go along with it's dedicated apparel selection.

Bikes will be in UK dealers come January 2016!

This is exactly what i wanted to hear about the engine, thanks for posting the review:

The punchy engine that helped make the MT-07 so popular works just as well in its new home. It feels more willing than the Scrambler's L-twin motor and is smoother when you open it up through the gears. It makes the same power as the Scrambler (75hp) and, strangely, exactly the same torque (50lbft) although the XSR is six kilograms lighter.
