Yamaha MT-07: The bike that works for everyone
When the MT-07 first arrived back in 2014 few people realised the immense impact that this 690cc twin-cylinder naked bike would have on the European market. But as soon as the first machines started to appear on the street the word was out that this was no ordinary motorcycle. All it took was one demo ride for the customer to realise that the MT-07 really was a different kind of machine.
MT stands for ‘Master of Torque’, and the outstanding crossplane technology engine proved to live up to its name, with its linear torque making the MT-07 a joy to ride in different riding conditions. Its compact chassis gave it an ideal blend of agility with stability – and the easy ergonomics and natural seating position made it a big success with riders of all ages and experience levels. Put simply, the MT-07 is a bike that works for everyone – and with its competitive price it can justifiably claim to offer the best balance of performance and value in its class.
European riders know what they want, and they soon realised that this accessible Hyper Naked was something very special. With over 125,000 units of MT-07 (full power and 35kW) sold since its launch, this is by far and away one of the Yamaha’s best-selling motorcycle, and it has been the number 1 model in the naked class every year since 2014, with almost twice as many units sold as its nearest rival.
Next generation Yamaha MT-07: Progressive evolution
As the best-selling naked model in its category from day one, it’s clear that the MT-07 is giving Yamaha’s customers exactly what they want in their bike. Featuring distinctive new bodywork that reflects its pure, next generation MT DNA, the 2021 MT-07 represents the progressive evolution of Europe’s favourite naked bike, and reinforces the core values of this outstandingly successful and much-loved middleweight.
A range of upgraded features including an engaging and characterful EU5-compliant engine as well as more powerful front brakes confirm the MT-07’s class-leading riding experience – while the overall feel of quality is underlined by the fitment of a new LED headlight with LED turn signals and position lights and LCD instruments. Tapered handlebars and a new tank and seat contribute towards a more comfortable upright riding position, while the latest Michelin sports tyres give confident roadholding – and turn up the fun factor up by another few clicks.
New colours and refined detailing reinforce the bike’s MT family DNA, and with an extremely competitive price point the MT-07 is ready to maintain its leading position as the bike that works for everyone by offering the best balance of performance and value in its segment.
