The XS650 XS1 was the first 4 stroke engine motorcycle ever developed by Yamaha and was also the first large displacement engine. Prior to the introduction of this bike, the largest engine was the YR-1 Yamaha 2-stroke twin.
The XS650 debuted on the market in 1970 as the XS-1, the biggest bike in the Yamaha stable. Available in one color scheme, green and white, the first version featured drum brakes and was not equipped with an electric starter.
The motorcycle division of Yamaha was founded in 1955, and was headed by Genichi Kawakami. Early success in racing set the tone for Yamaha, as competition in many varieties of motorcycle racing has been a key endeavor of the company throughout its history.
The target for Yamaha therefore was clear: light weight, high performance and easy handling at a level of the smaller Yamaha two-stroke motorcycles. The high engine output of the SOHC compared to the existing OHV type four-stroke models. The Yamaha XS-1 650 is defined as a proven legacy and continued on through 15 years ending in 1984.
One of the exciting emerging trends over the last years has been the ease in which the XS650 can be customized into a chopper, bobber, brat, cafe racer or you can just do a complete restoration.
