2018 Yamaha MT-07


The MT-07 is a motorcycle that offers big time fun, affordability and riding enjoyment. This versatile naked roadster offers deep engine torque from its 689 cc parallel twin and a comfortable upright riding position combined with a lightweight, easy-to-handle sport chassis. For 2018 the engineers have upgraded the suspension and redesigned the headlight, taillight and bodywork. The revised MT-07 is the perfect machine for both new and experienced riders alike who are looking for outstanding value in a mid-class sport bike.


For 2018, the MT-07 has been restyled to more closely resemble its bigger MT siblings. Revised aesthetic items include the headlight, front fender, air scoops,, taillight, tail section and new colour options.


The ultra-reliable, liquid-cooled, 689cc, inline twin has been designed to provide deep torque in the most frequently used rpm range (3,000 to 6,500 rpm). A single balancer shaft keeps things silky smooth, while the 6-speed transmission with overdrive 6th gear reduces engine rpms at highway speeds.


ABS equipped dual 282 mm discs with 4 piston calipers up front and a 245 mm rear disc with single piston caliper provides piece of mind while braking under pressure or in wet conditions.

  • Slim, compact, 689cc, DOHC, 4-valve, liquid-cooled, 20 degree inclined, inline twin cylinder engine.
