A light weight and torque inspired twin cylinder at a great value inviting you to experience the thrills of the dark side.
Advanced Twin-Cylinder Engine
The MT-07 features a compact 689cc liquid-cooled, inline twin cylinder, DOHC engine with fuel injection. This engine provides a unique power character, with outstanding low- to mid-range torque and very linear throttle response, combined with strong high-rpm pulling power. This motor develops 50 foot pounds of torque and is designed to maximize riding excitement in the real world.
Crossplane Crankshaft Concept
The 2-cylinder engine features Yamaha’s “Crossplane Crankshaft Concept” 270- degree crank that provides linear torque development in response to the rider’s throttle input. The CP2® engine is also light, slim and compact, and offers an excellent level of rider/machine
Offset Cylinder Block
The CP2 engine shifts its cylinder bores slightly forward, towards the exhaust side. This offset reduces piston to cylinder wall friction, for more power and improved fuel economy.
Compact Stacked Transmission
The six-speed transmission “stacks” the input/output shafts in a triangular layout to keep the overall engine size shorter front-to-back, which optimizes engine placement in the frame for outstanding weight balance. The transmission ratios are designed to bring out the best of the low- to mid-speed torque and excellent response characteristics while reducing the need for frequent shifts.
Refined Fuel Injection
Electronic fuel injection settings deliver a smooth throttle response to enhance riding enjoyment from open roads to the urban sprawl. The system delivers outstanding torque in the low- and mid-rpm range along with exciting acceleration in the upper rpm range.
Midship Exhaust System
By placing the muffler low in the frame and as close to the center of the machine as possible, vehicle mass is centralized for improved all around handling.
Refined Front Fork
The front suspension features a 41mm fork with 5.1 inches of travel, with carefully selected spring rates and damping settings for a refined suspension feel and responsive performance across a wide range of riding styles.
Adjustable Monocross® Shock
The MT-07 features a link-type Monocross shock adjustable for both rebound damping and spring preload. The shock provides 5.1 inches of rear travel, and is positioned below the seat with an almost horizontal alignment, which helps make the chassis much more
Compact Frame Design
A lightweight, high-strength steel frame provides an optimized rigidity balance for nimble, agile handling. The engine is a stressed member of the chassis, allowing a lighter, more compact main frame design that contributes to the low wet weight of only 403 lb.
The riding position on the MT-07 is one of its most important features, offering a balance between sporty handling and rider comfort, thanks to its upright riding position and plush, comfortable seat.
Sporty Chassis Dimensions
The wheelbase, seat height, fuel tank width, rake and other dimensions are all set to work with the qualities of the compact twin-cylinder engine to achieve a sporty, light and neutral handling character.
Powerful, Controllable Braking
Front brakes consist of dual wave-style 282mm discs with potent 4- piston calipers. Rear braking is handled by a 245mm wave-style rear disc. ABS comes standard to boost rider confidence and prevent wheel lock-ups in reduced-traction conditions.
Lightweight 10-spoke cast aluminum wheels reduce unsprung weight for great handling and suspension performance. The 17-inch front wheel is fitted with a 120/70ZR17 radial tire and the rear wheel sports a wide 180/55ZR17 radial tire.
The MT-07 features a refined style to match the rest of the MT family, including an angular headlight, aggressive intake scoops, a sleek fuel tank cover, and a layered tail design featuring a bright LED tail light.
Ergonomically Designed Fuel Tank
The slim 3.7 gallon fuel tank is both stylish and compact to provide excellent comfort and knee grip area, while still permitting easier planting of both feet on the ground, for added rider confidence at stops.
The compact full-LCD instrument panel includes a digital bar-type tachometer display with gear position indicator, digital speedometer, odometer, dual trip meters, fuel gauge, fuel reserve trip meter, clock, instant and average fuel consumption and a range of warning and indicator lights.
