"XS-V1 Sakura" is a symbol of our long-nurtured corporate philosophy. This is a V-twin sport model with a look of "Japanese style" in the image of Yamaha's first 4-stroke model, the XS-1 (650cc), released in 1970. Its design is full of XS-1 DNA, in its simplicity and functional beauty and finds new refinement in a retro-modern aesthetic. It is a model that proposes a very Yamaha and very Japanese vision of premium motorcycling life, bringing together the unique characteristics of a 1,000cc air-cooled, V-twin model with its strong pulse feeling and easy-going running performance in a finely crafted body that is lightweight and slim and defined by a low seat height.
*Sakura is the Japanese word for cherry blossoms.
