The all new Yamaha MT-07 made its official debut at the EICMA motorcycle show. The new motorcycle is the smaller version of the MT-09 so it shares a many features with its sibling.
In terms of style the Yamaha MT-07 comes with a muscular look a sporty tail, a sculpted fuel tank and seventeen inch wheels.
At the heart of the motorcycle lies a 689 cc, parallel twin, liquid cooled, inline, 2 cylinder, 4 stroke engine which delivers a maximum torque of 68.0 Nm (6.9 kg-m) at 6,500 rpm and 55.0 kW (74.8PS) at 9,000 rpm. The engine is mated to a constant mesh six speed transmission with wet, multiple disc clutch.
The stopping power is assured by front hydraulic dual discs and rear hydraulic single discs.
For the moment, Yamaha didn’t release any prices, but we can expect it to be priced slightly lower than the MT-09 ($7,990) so it will be pretty affordable.

With its impressive design language and the mighty roar, the Ymaha MT-03 is eager to attack the roads with poise. The Yamaha MT-03’s character is so unique that it had to be created a special niche for itself. The new “roadster motard” puts versatility on top of the list and it can be easily considered the perfect partner for any type of road.
The motorcycle is powered by the same engine as the Yamaha XT660 namely a smooth, fuel injected liquid-cooled, 660cc unit that puts out 35.0 kW (48PS) at 6,250 rpm and 56.2 Nm (5.73 kg-m) of torque at 5,500 rpm. These numbers are far from being impressive, but the motorcycle recovers this lost terrain in terms of handling.
Therefore, Yamaha’s engineers have spent a lot of time on making the MT-03 as agile as possible. They did it by moving the motorcycle’s weight as far forward as possible. Due to the smart emplacement of the engine, battery, swingarm and other elements, Yamaha obtained a weight distribution of 52/48% front/rear, giving the motorcycle a great front end feel.
