The Yamaha MT-07 is one of Yamaha’s most successful motorcycles of all time, with almost 80,000 new units purchased in just 4 years. With its characterful and torquey crossplane engine, compact chassis, low weight and agile handling, the Yamaha MT-07 is one of the few motorcycles that appeals to all kinds of riders.
The 2018 Yamaha MT-07 gets an all new body design that enhances its appearance and also gives an improved feeling of quality. The new MT-07’s more mature body design retains the fundamental character of the previous model, and blends it with new elements that have been inspired by the MT-09 – such as the bolder headlight that gives a more imposing face.
A newly designed fuel tank and MT-09 style ‘air intakes‘ give a sharper image and reinforce the MT family look, while a new seat and separate black side panels accentuate the mass-forward design.
For 2018 also new on the MT-07 is a completely new seat design that gives an improved riding position for riders of all sizes. The front of the new seat now extends to the sides of the rear of the fuel tank, giving increased comfort – and the new shape also gives the 2018 model a more integrated profile.
With 130 mm travel at both the front and rear, the MT-07’s suspension system is updated and designed to give comfortable, progressive and predictable performance, making it ideal for a wide range of riding conditions.
For 2018 the front forks are equipped with revised settings that give a sportier character, while the rear suspension is fitted with a new rebound damping adjuster that enables riders to set their bike up to suit their riding style and usage.
The 689 cc 2-cylinder engine’s 270-degree crank gives the MT-07 a pulsating driving force that sets this apart from other models. It produces 74.8 PS @ 9,000 rpm and 68.0 Nm @ 6,500 rpm and weighs 182 kgs wet.
