2022 Yamaha YZF-R7 World GP 60th Anniversary Edition: FROM R HERITAGE COMES R WORLD.

Introducing the new 2022 Yamaha YZF-R7 World GP 60th Anniversary Edition…

With bold Yamaha Heritage White and Rapid Red chain‑block livery and a host of special detailing touches, the World GP 60th Anniversary Edition YZF‑R7 is striking from every angle.

A new generation supersport featuring Yamaha’s legendary styling combines an advanced CP2 engine with an ultra-thin and lightweight chassis to provide torquey performance. Bridging the gap between the entry-level YZF-R3 and the prestigious YZF-R1, the 2022 YZF-R7 offers a unique package of performance and sporty styling that is true to its R-Series DNA and the lineup’s aspirational history of racing success. From its adjustable Monocross single-shock striking a balance between ride comfort and sporty performance to its proven engine and potent braking power, the R7 is designed to deliver the pinnacle of performance on and off the track.

Created using the same pure race-bred DNA that comes with every Yamaha Supersport bike, the R7’s compact dimensions and high-torque engine are guaranteed to put a smile on your face with every ride. And to celebrate 60 years of Grand Prix racing, Yamaha has created the exclusive R7 World GP 60th Anniversary with the iconic white and red “speed block” colour scheme.

Legendary winning colours.
Yamaha’s involvement in Grand Prix racing started way back in 1961 when the company entered the French GP to compete at the highest level. The team’s first victory came soon after, and Yamaha won the first of many World Championships in 1964. The race wins continue, with over 500 victories recorded to date – and many more to come.

Every R-Series supersport owes its existence to Yamaha’s race bikes. The R7 World GP 60th Anniversary’s iconic white body colour with red “speed block” graphics and special 60th anniversary emblem – combined with a red front fender, yellow front plate and gold-coloured wheels – embodies 60 years of GP racing and celebrates the famous race bikes and riders that have helped to make Yamaha what it is today.

The R7 World GP 60th Anniversary is a perfect example of Yamaha’s mission to create high quality motorcycles that inspire, thrill and excite. Fast, light and agile – and finished in Yamaha’s most famous historic white and red racing colours – this is the ultimate accessible Supersport.

ENGINE

  • Torquey CP2 Powerplant
    Yamaha’s proven 689cc liquid-cooled, inline 2-cylinder DOHC fuel-injected CP2 engine delivers excellent power and performance throughout the rpm range for an exhilarating ride and a true supersport experience. Its 270-degree crankshaft delivers linear torque for exciting acceleration and limited vibration.
  • Linear Torque with Smooth Acceleration
    The all-new YZF-R7 boasts a 270-degree crankshaft that delivers a tactile experience of pulse and acceleration with limited vibration. The CP2 engine provides the rider a linear-feeling, direct connection from the throttle to the rear wheel.
  • All-New A&S Clutch
    A first for Yamaha’s CP2 platform, the all-new Assist and Slipper clutch reduces clutch lever force while providing seamless downshifts and a controlled feeling over the bike’s engine braking. This helps make the supersport riding experience more accessible to more riders. For fast and smooth upshifts, an optional Quick Shift System (QSS) is also available on the YZF-R7.
  • Quick Shift System for Smooth Upshifts
    An optional Quick Shift System (QSS) can be paired with the YZF-R7 to help provide speedy, smooth upshifts. When the sensor on the shift rod detects movement in the gearshift lever, adjustments are made in the engine output according to ECU calculations to instantly cancel out the drive torque of the engaged gear to promote swifter gear changes.
  • Strong, Lightweight Pistons
    Forged aluminum pistons with direct-plated cylinders integrated with the crank case make for lighter weight and excellent strength at extreme temperatures, ensuring reliability at higher rpm.

 

CHASSIS/SUSPENSION

  • Supersport Riding Position
    The YZF-R7’s carefully developed rider’s triangle and racing-inspired cockpit puts you in a comfortable, confidence-inspiring riding position. A new seat combined with new tank covers featuring deep knee pockets, provide optimal hip and knee positioning. Riders get the freedom to adjust positions while also maintaining a firmly planted feel in corners and sturdy body hold under braking. Separate clip-on handlebars are set in relation to rider hip and footpeg placement for a commanding riding position.
  • Inverted Front Fork
    The YZF-R7 features a preload, rebound and compression adjustable inverted KYB 41mm front fork offering optimized spring rates and damping settings for an excellent front-end feel during cornering and braking.
  • Lightweight Frame Tuned for Rigidity Balance
    A high-strength steel frame with a rigid-mount aluminum center brace provides an optimized balance of rigidity for linear and nimble responsiveness to rider input.
  • Monocross Rear Shock
    The all-new linked-type Monocross single-shock design reduces weight and further centralizes mass. Its adjustable spring preload and rebound damping are tuned to strike an ideal balance between ride comfort and sporty performance, for capability across a wide range of uses from urban commuting to track days.

    A newly-designed radial brake master cylinder from Brembo combines with radial-mounted front brake calipers on dual 298mm front brake rotors to optimize braking pressure for linear delivery with excellent performance and controllability.
  • Thin Proportions for Perfect Control
    All-new dimensions give the YZF-R7 the slimmest proportions of the entire R-Series family, aiding in confident cornering performance on the track and quick, agile direction changes on twisty roads. The slim design also reduces wind resistance for optimal aerodynamics, while new bodywork incorporates the rider’s body to improve the flow of air around the bike.
