MT series 2019: Hack the Darkness

Can you resist the Dark Side of Japan?

It was just 5 years ago when Yamaha unveiled the original ground breaking MT-09 to the motorcycling world. With its high torque crossplane engine, naked body and agile handling, this bike introduced the European market to the Dark Side of Japan – a bold new design philosophy that drew its inspiration from the underground custom scene in Japan.

This innovative new Hyper Naked segment proved to be an instant success with riders who were looking to discover the essential spirit and fundamental enjoyment associated with two wheels. With their clear focus on linear torque, easy agility and high power to weight, Yamaha’s Hyper Naked motorcycles have brought a whole new look, energy and attitude to the streets of Europe.

Since the arrival of the first MT-09 the Hyper Naked range has grown rapidly to include a total of seven models from the flagship MT-10 SP through to the MT-125 – and each one of them has proved to be an outstanding success in its own category. In just 5 years, MT sales in Europe have exceeded 175,000 units, making this the most successful and popular range of Yamaha motorcycles – with the MT-09 and MT-07 consistently amongst the top selling models in their respective sales leagues.

 

New Ice Fluo colour option for 2019

Yamaha totally revolutionized the look of the Hyper Naked scene with the introduction of the radical Night Fluo colours. Bold and original, this audacious colour scheme reinforced the dynamic character of the MT range – and perfectly complemented the daring and outgoing personalities of many Hyper Naked riders.

For 2019 Yamaha takes the MT’s aggressive and streetwise image to the next level with an evolution of the Fluo concept. The forceful and uncompromising new Ice Fluo colour not only underlines the assertive character of Yamaha’s Hyper Naked bikes – it also creates an instantly recognisable look that strengthens the strong family feeling amongst MT owners. Consisting of a super cool new ice-grey body colour contrasted by fluorescent red wheels and a black engine, frame, forks and headlamp – with tuning fork logos on the tank or air ducts – the new Ice Fluo colour option is exclusive to the Yamaha MT range.

The new Ice Fluo colour option will be offered on each MT Hyper Naked model (except SP versions that feature exclusive colours), while the Yamaha Blue and Tech Black colour options will continue.

Features

Top Features

  • Compact,Torque-Rich Engine
    The MT-07 features a 689cc liquid-cooled twin-cylinder engine that is light, slim, and thrilling to ride. This 270-degree crossplane crankshaft concept engine provides a unique power character, combining outstanding low- to mid-range torque with strong high-rpm pulling power.
  • MT Family Styling
    The MT-07 features a refined style to match the rest of the MT family, including an angular headlight, aggressive intake scoops, a sleek fuel tank cover, and a layered tail design featuring a bright LED taillight.
  • Narrow Frame Design
    A strong, lightweight steel frame provides an optimized rigidity balance for nimble, agile handling. The engine is a stressed member of the compact chassis, resulting in a total wet weight of only 403 lb.
  • Sporty, Responsive Chassis
    Suspension tuning and overall chassis dimensions are all set to work with the qualities of the compact twin-cylinder engine to achieve a sporty, light and neutral handling character.
  • Advanced Instruments
    The compact full-LCD instrument panel includes a digital bar-type tachometer display with gear position indicator, digital speedometer, odometer, dual trip meters, fuel gauge, fuel reserve trip meter, clock, instant and average fuel consumption and a range of warning and indicator lights.
  • Advanced Twin-Cylinder Engine
    The MT-07 features a compact 689cc liquid-cooled, inline twin cylinder, DOHC engine with fuel injection. This engine provides a unique power character, with outstanding low- to mid-range torque and very linear throttle response, combined with strong high-rpm pulling power. This motor develops 50 foot pounds of torque and is designed to maximize riding excitement in the real world.
  • Crossplane Crankshaft Concept
    The 2-cylinder engine features Yamaha’s “Crossplane Crankshaft Concept” 270- degree crank that provides linear torque development in response to the rider’s throttle input. The CP2® engine is also light, slim and compact, and offers an excellent level of rider/machine communication.
  • Offset Cylinder Block
    The CP2 engine shifts its cylinder bores slightly forward, towards the exhaust side. This offset reduces piston to cylinder wall friction, for more power and improved fuel economy.
  • Compact Stacked Transmission
    The six-speed transmission “stacks” the input/output shafts in a triangular layout to keep the overall engine size shorter front-to-back, which optimizes engine placement in the frame for outstanding weight balance. The transmission ratios are designed to bring out the best of the low- to mid-speed torque and excellent response characteristics while reducing the need for frequent shifts.
  • Refined Fuel Injection
    Electronic fuel injection settings deliver a smooth throttle response to enhance riding enjoyment from open roads to the urban sprawl. The system delivers outstanding torque in the low- and mid-rpm range along with exciting acceleration in the upper rpm range.
  • Midship Exhaust System
    By placing the muffler low in the frame and as close to the center of the machine as possible, vehicle mass is centralized for improved all-around handling.
  • Refined Front Fork
    The front suspension features a 41mm fork with 5.1 inches of travel, with carefully selected spring rates and damping settings for a refined suspension feel and responsive performance across a wide range of riding styles.
  • Adjustable Monocross® Shock
    The MT-07 features a link-type Monocross shock adjustable for both rebound damping and spring preload. The shock provides 5.1 inches of rear travel, and is positioned below the seat with an almost horizontal alignment, which helps make the chassis much more compact.
  • Compact Frame Design
    A lightweight, high-strength steel frame provides an optimized rigidity balance for nimble, agile handling. The engine is a stressed member of the chassis, allowing a lighter, more compact main frame design that contributes to the low wet weight of only 403 lb.
  • Balanced Ergonomics
    The riding position on the MT-07 is one of its most important features, offering a balance between sporty handling and rider comfort, thanks to its upright riding position and plush, comfortable seat.
  • Sporty Chassis Dimensions
    The wheelbase, seat height, fuel tank width, rake and other dimensions are all set to work with the qualities of the compact twin-cylinder engine to achieve a sporty, light and neutral handling character.
  • Powerful, Controllable Braking
    Front brakes consist of dual wave-style 282mm discs with potent 4-piston calipers. Rear braking is handled by a 245mm wave-style rear disc. ABS comes standard to boost rider confidence and prevent wheel lock-ups in reduced-traction conditions.
  • Lightweight Wheels
    Lightweight 10-spoke cast aluminum wheels reduce unsprung weight for great handling and suspension performance. The 17-inch front wheel is fitted with a 120/70ZR17 radial tire and the rear wheel sports a wide 180/55ZR17 radial tire.
  • Sleek Bodywork
    The MT-07 features a refined style to match the rest of the MT family, including an angular headlight, aggressive intake scoops, a sleek fuel tank cover, and a layered tail design featuring a bright LED tail light.
  • Ergonomically Designed Fuel Tank
    The slim 3.7 gallon fuel tank is both stylish and compact to provide excellent comfort and knee grip area, while still permitting easier planting of both feet on the ground, for added rider confidence at stops.
  • Advanced Instrumentation
    The compact full-LCD instrument panel includes a digital bar-type tachometer display with gear position indicator, digital speedometer, odometer, dual trip meters, fuel gauge, fuel reserve trip meter, clock, instant and average fuel consumption and a range of warning and indicator lights.
