689cc inline 2-cylinder crossplane engine

What gives the MT-07 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.

Improved riding position

The MT-07 is equipped with 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 latest MT-07 a more integrated profile and a stronger MT identity.

Handlebar-mounted digital instruments

The high-tech instruments are mounted directly on top of the handlebars to give the rider a clear view of the road ahead. The easy-to-read LED display includes a gear position indicator and fuel gauge, and a bar-type tachometer features its tallest bars in the 4,000 to 8,000 rpm band where the strongest torque can be found.
