News on the European Yamaha website shows they're directly taking on the Ducati Scrambler, cafe racer market with their new XSR700. Some suggesting in Australia this will be a new version of the MT-07.

Comparing the Ducati to this, they put out very similar horsepower but the Ducati is a little heavier at 193kg wet weight vs the Yamaha at 186kg but that works out to a power to weight ratio of 312kw/T to 316kw/T, not much in it really.
