2022 Yamaha MT-07: DARK ATTRACTION.

Introducing the new 2022 Yamaha MT-07…

Featuring a distinctive next generation look and features, as well as an advanced twin‑cylinder engine. Experience the best balance of performance and value the Dark Side has to offer.

Inspired by Japanese subculture and created by some of the most visionary designers in the business, the Yamaha MT-07 marked the real beginning of Yamaha’s “hyper naked” segment when it arrived in 2014. The 2022 MT-07 represents the progressive evolution of Yamaha’s popular naked middleweight, reinforcing the core values of this outstandingly successful and much-loved motorcycle.

For 2022, the next-generation MT-07 gets distinctive new bodywork with twin winglet-type air intakes and a compact new LED headlight, which projects a futuristic Y-shaped face – the signature style for the latest Hyper Naked models. Plus the refined EU5-compliant engine gives you even more linear response with a gutsier exhaust note.

New wider aluminium taper handlebars make turning easier and create a more assertive riding position, while larger 298mm dual front discs deliver stronger braking. Moreover, the inverted LCD instruments, as well as black control levers and compact LED flashers, emphasise the bike’s top specifications and best-in-class value.

 

 

 

2022 Yamaha MT-07 Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

PREMIUM STYLING

The 2022 MT-07 styling reflects the ongoing evolution of the MT family The LED headlight assembly creates a signature front face, complemented by more attractive LED turn signals, and fuel tank covers with sculpted air ducts to give the MT-07 an aggressive appearance.

 

689 CC CP2 ENGINE

The EU5-compliant, 689 cc twin-cylinder CP2 engine features an optimized air intake duct design and fuel injector settings, as well as a 2-into-1 exhaust to provide a more linear engine response and high-torque throughout the RPM’s.

 

ADVANCED BRAKING SYSTEM

Equipped with a high-spec front braking system, the MT-07 features a front 298 mm dual brake rotors giving more stopping power and greater controllability and a 245 mm rear disc which improves performance, particularly in wet conditions.

Advanced Twin-Cylinder Engine
The MT-07 features an updated, compact 689cc liquid-cooled, inline twin cylinder, DOHC engine with fuel injection. The unique power character of the engine provides outstanding low- to mid-range torque with a linear throttle response and strong high-rpm pulling power. Maximizing riding excitement in the real world, the engine maintains the same level of response due to its intake air duct design, exhaust system specs – now integrated 2-into-1 exhaust pipes and muffler – and updated ECU specs. The fuel injection settings were also optimized to bring refinements to the engine’s linear response characteristics while the throttle is slightly open at low rpm. Other updates include new valve seats with excellent abrasion resistance for the exhaust side, improved gearshift feel thanks to different cut angles for the dog gears, and repositioning for the catalytic converter – now closer to the headers – and oxygen sensor.

Assertive Riding Position
To alleviate any sense of narrowness, the MT-07 features a new tapered handlebar that is 32mm wider and 19mm taller and offers improved feelings of control and comfort for a wider range of rider sizes.

Next-Generation Design
Joining the third generation MT style – as featured on the MT-09 – the MT-07’s new look further brings out its distinctive appeal with fashion-leading colors and graphics. The newly designed parts and components are integrated with minimal structural elements, creating an attractive design that emphasizes pure Hyper Naked character. With a silhouette that is synonymous with the MT Series’ signature statement of torque and power, the MT-07 showcases a tight, compact and powerful appearance.

LED Projector Lighting
With new LED lighting for the position lights, headlight and both front and rear turn signals, the MT-07 exhibits clear and powerful illumination with a modern design.

2022 Yamaha MT-07 Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

ENGINE

  • Advanced Twin-Cylinder Engine
    The MT-07 features an updated, compact 689cc liquid-cooled, inline twin cylinder, DOHC engine with fuel injection. The unique power character of the engine provides outstanding low- to mid-range torque with a linear throttle response and strong high-rpm pulling power. Maximizing riding excitement in the real world, the engine maintains the same level of response due to its intake air duct design, exhaust system specs – now integrated 2-into-1 exhaust pipes and muffler – and updated ECU specs. The fuel injection settings were also optimized to bring refinements to the engine’s linear response characteristics while the throttle is slightly open at low rpm. Other updates include new valve seats with excellent abrasion resistance for the exhaust side, improved gearshift feel thanks to different cut angles for the dog gears, and repositioning for the catalytic converter – now closer to the headers – and oxygen sensor.
  • Crossplane Crankshaft Concept
    The two-cylinder engine features Yamaha’s Crossplane Crankshaft Concept 270-degree crank that provides linear torque development in response to the rider’s throttle input. Offering excellent rider-machine communication, the CP2 engine is also light, slim and compact.
  • Compact Stacked Transmission
    The six-speed transmission “stacks” the input/output shafts in a triangular layout. Keeping the overall engine size shorter from front-to-back, the placement in the frame is optimized for outstanding weight balance. The transmission ratios bring out the best of the low- to mid-speed torque with excellent response characteristics to reduce the need for frequent shifts.
  • Midship Exhaust System
    By placing the muffler low in the frame and as close to the center of the machine as possible, the bike’s mass is centralized for improved all around handling. The MT-07 also features a new exhaust system with integrated 2-into-1 exhaust pipes and muffler.
  • Offset Cylinder Block
    The CP2 engine shifts its cylinder bores slightly forward, towards the exhaust side which reduces piston-to-cylinder wall friction, resulting in more power and improved fuel economy.
  • Refined Fuel Injection
    From the open roads to the urban sprawl, the new electronic fuel injection settings deliver a smooth throttle response for enhanced riding enjoyment. The system delivers outstanding torque in the low- and mid-rpm range with exciting acceleration in the upper rpm range while the new fuel injection settings have been optimized to bring refinements to the engine’s linear response characteristics when the throttle is slightly open at low rpm.

  • Compact Frame Design
    The high-strength steel frame provides an optimized balance of rigidity for nimble, agile handling. As a stressed member of the chassis, the engine allows for a lighter, more compact main frame design, contributing to a low wet weight of only 406 lb.
  • Lightweight Wheels
    Lightweight 10-spoke cast aluminum wheels reduce unsprung weight for great handling and suspension performance. The Michelin Road 5 tires offer excellent grip and agility with 120/70ZR17 front and 180/55ZR17 rear sizes.
  • Stronger Stopping Power
    For excellent stopping power and greater control and feel while braking, the MT-07 features bigger 298mm front brake discs with four-piston calipers. Rear braking is handled by a 245mm disc, and ABS comes standard to boost rider confidence and prevent wheel lock-ups in reduced traction conditions.
  • KYB® Front Fork
    The MT-07’s front suspension features a 41mm KYB® fork with 5.1 inches of travel. With carefully selected spring rates and damping settings, the suspension has a refined feel and responsively performs across a wide range of riding styles.
  • Adjustable KYB® Rear Shock
    The MT-07 features a link-type KYB® rear shock adjustable for both rebound damping and spring preload. With 5.1 inches of rear travel, the shock is positioned below the seat with an almost horizontal alignment to help make the chassis even more compact.
  • Sporty Chassis Dimensions
    Working with the characteristics of the compact twin-cylinder engine, the wheelbase, seat height, fuel tank width, rake and other dimensions achieve a sporty, light and neutral handling character.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES
