The all new MT-07 is specifically designed for the Australian market. The 655cc parallel twin has been purpose built in Japan to suit our learner market requirements. With heaps of instant torque and the same class leading light weight as the much heralded European MT-07, the Aussie version is designed to appeal to experts and new riders alike. MT-07 is the lightest motorcycle in its class, has the most torque, has the best power to weight ratio and is the most fuel efficient. With its high levels of excitement and easy handling nature, MT-07 is an incredible package offering exceptional value for money, making it an attractive proposition for anyone looking to capture the essence of motorcycling. Newer riders will discover that the MT-07 looks good, feels great and is easy to use and fun to ride. YMA also believes that because MT-07 sits at the sportier end of the learner approved spectrum, more experienced bikers will discover a machine that’s built to exceed their expectations.
What gives the MT-07 such a special character is its all-new 655cc 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.
For easy manoeuvrability and remarkable agility, the MT-07 runs with a light and slim steel backbone-type frame that utilizes 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.
The MT-07 is characterised by its mass-forward design that emphasises its athletic build and creates an immediate feeling of power. The slim fuel tank accentuates the bike’s compact looks and offers excellent knee grip – while the lightweight air scoops and aluminium side covers give the MT a sporty and purposeful image.
