The MT-07 brings fun, affordability and enjoyment to the street. Everything about this versatile naked bike – from its deep torque through to the agile chassis and outstanding economy – make it hard to resist for both newer and experienced riders.
The 689cc inline twin engine benefits from our crossplane philosophy that enables it to develop linear torque for outstanding acceleration. And the MT-07 is also equipped with a compact and lightweight chassis for unreal agility in traffic and easy handling on the open road.
For 2021, the next-generation MT-07 gets distinctive new bodywork with twin winglet-type air intakes and a compact new LED headlight that projects a futuristic Y-shape face – the signature style for the latest Hyper Naked models. And the refined 689cc engine gives you even more linear response with a gutsier exhaust note.
New wider aluminium taper handlebars give easier turning and a more commanding riding position, while larger 298mm dual front discs deliver stronger braking – and the inverted LCD instruments as well as black control levers and compact LED flashers underline the top specification and best-in-class value.
689CC Parallel Twin
What gives the MT-07HO such a special character is its 689cc inline 2-cylinder engine which has been developed using Yamaha’s’ crossplane philosophy’. With an uneven firing interval, the 270-degree crank gives a strong feeling of acceleration and great traction, and the deep linear torque ensures outstanding performance.
The front forks feature revised settings for a sportier character, while the rear shock absorber now has a rebound damping adjuster that makes suspension set up easy. With 130mm travel at both the front and rear, the MT-07’s suspension system gives smooth, progressive and predictable performance, making it ideal for a wide range of riding conditions.
A newly designed fuel tank and bold air scoops give the MT-07 a sharper image and reinforce the MT family look. The new seat and separate black side panels accentuate the bike’s mass-forward design and emphasises its athletic build. And the bold new headlight and MT-09 inspired taillight enhance the overall quality and style.
Light and Agile
For easy manoeuvrability and remarkable agility, the MT-07 runs with a light and slim steel backbone-type frame that utilises the engine as a stressed member. Combined with its compact wheelbase and plush suspension systems, this strong and light chassis gives a responsive and engaging ride.
A lightweight, compact, full digital LCD instrument panel provides a modern, high quality appearance with all information available at a glance.
With its angular mirrors, LED tail light and mass-forward body design, there’s no mistaking the MT-07’s resemblance to the bigger 850cc 3-cylinder MT-09. Other family features include the lightweight cast aluminium 10-spoke wheels as well as the Z-shape formed by the air intake-style scoops and the exhaust down pipes.
