One of the novelties that we recently had the opportunity to see in Milan is that new Yamaha MT-07. This model is that Yamaha’s most important novelty there exposed. New member of the MT family is that for several reasons, but the most fundamental one is the fight for the drivers who are just entering the world of motorcycles.
At a time when more and more motorcycle brands fighting for supremacy in a segment that is growing rapidly and Yamaha had to make a motorcycle which should try to attract new riders. Its principle is significantly different from that of other brands because instead of motorcycles with a displacement of 400 cc Japanese offer a “serious” motorcycle whose two-cylinder engine volume of 689 cc.
So how is it then Yamaha plans to perform? The answer is a kit which forces model MT-07 is with 75 hp down to 47 horses and that’s most that can develop a motorcycle with which owners can ride with A1 category. Mention two-cylinder DOHC engine with electronic fuel injection is a lightweight compact and thanks to reduced friction between piston and cylinder delivers not only lower consumption but also quieter operation.
In normal design without blocking it develops almost 75 hp which is more than enough for 164 kg of heavy naked from Iwate. It is situated in a steel tubular frame and further enhances the structural strength of motorcycles. Yamaha’s new MT-07 is equipped with swingarm, which is only 530 mm long and collaborates with monoshock. The front fork has 41 mm. The seat is placed low on the Yamaha 785 mm from the ground in order to ensure the driver is an ideal driving position.
As for the lights Yamaha played with a combination of classical and LED lighting. While the front LED technology used classical solution adorns the rear end of the motorcycle. New Yamaha MT-07 will arrive in showrooms in February next year, at a price that is not yet known. Immediately after the standard versions should be available and it is with ABS, probably sometime mid-March. Yamaha is now prepared for the five colors in which this novelty will be available.
