Yamaha XS650 1981 22046
The twin cylinder motor on the XS650 produces around 53 bhp and a great sound. The XS650 is now very popular as a classic cruiser with character and is an easy to ride bike (though handling is not a strong point as you would expect with a cruiser).
Whilst other Japanese manufactures were developing 4 cylinder bikes, Yamaha produced a motor with the characteristics of an old British twin in a reliable package. This 1981 model, showing just over 7,000 miles from new, is no exception and will make a great bike for someone.
