Yamaha MT-07 revealed at EICMA 2017. The MT-07 model is the Japanese manufacturer's best-selling motorcycle with close to 92,000 units sold since its launch in 2014.
The new Yamaha MT-07 features an all-new design language, inspired by its elder sibling, the MT-09. The new MT-07 gets a bold headlamp, newly designed fuel tank and MT-09 inspired air intakes lending a sharper and more impressive look along with a new seat and separate black side panels.
The new seat of the Yamaha MT-07 is not just about aesthetics, by wrapping around the rear of the fuel tank it also promises to be significantly more comfortable compared to the previous model.
The 2018 Yamaha MT-07 has tuned fork along with more adjustable shock. Yamaha describes the new suspension as "more refined" with new settings. The fork receives new rebound damping and spring rate, while the rear shock's compression damping and spring rate are changed.
Powering the new MT-07 is Yamaha's 698cc parallel-twin engine producing 74bhp, and this engine reportedly produces robust and linear torque, which the company believes is the secret behind the 182kg MT-07's success.
Braking duties on the new Yamaha MT-07 are carried out by 282mm discs at the front and 245mm at the rear. ABS comes standard on the bike. The MT-07 sits on 120/70 x 17 and 180/55 x 17 at the front and back respectively.
Yamaha has updated the MT-07 with tuned suspensions to offer better ride and handling. While the MT-09 inspires the design language of the 2018 MT-07, the new model continues to provide comfortable ride and power.
