2023 Yamaha YZF-R7: WHERE R WORLD MEETS YOURS.

Introducing the new 2023 Yamaha YZF-R7…

A new generation supersport with Yamaha’s legendary styling combines an advanced CP2 engine with an ultra‑thin and lightweight chassis to provide torquey performance on both the track and the street.

Bridging the gap between the entry-level YZF-R3 and the prestigious YZF-R1, the 2023 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.

R7
Yamaha R-Series models have been thrilling thousands of riders for over 20 years. Now there’s a sharp-looking addition to the range that’s ready to welcome a new generation of riders into R/World. Fast, agile and handsome, the R7 offers sports performance with everyday fun.

Where R/World Meets Yours
The lively 689cc CP2 engine with A&S clutch provides torque-rich acceleration for a truly exciting riding experience on the track and road. The super narrow and aerodynamic bodywork features an aggressive twin-eye face with a powerful central LED headlight – and the sharp tail and deeply sculpted tank are shaped by pure R-Series DNA. The R7’s high specification brakes and suspension give optimum controllability when cornering and braking.

The frontal area of the R7 is the smallest of the R-Series models, and ensures the highest levels of aerodynamic efficiency – while clip-on handlebars, rear sets and a bump-stop seat give you an adaptable and sporty riding position. This outstanding next generation Supersport makes R/World a reality for thrill-seeking riders like you – whether you’re riding on the track or out on the road.

 

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 a tactile experience of pulse and acceleration with limited vibration. The CP2 engine provides the rider a linear-feeling connection from the throttle to the rear wheel.

 

PERFORMANCE BUILT CHASSIS

The YZF-R7 boasts 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 the bodywork incorporates the rider’s body to improve the flow of air around the bike.

 

SPORTY SUSPENSION

The YZF-R7 features an inverted 41mm front fork with optimized spring rate and damping settings for an excellent front-end feel during cornering and braking. An all-new linked-type Monocross single-shock with adjustable spring preload and rebound damping strikes an ideal balance between ride comfort and supersport performance, for capability across a wide range of uses from urban commuting to track days.

ELECTRONICS

  • Digital LCD Instrumentation
    A new full-LCD instrument panel informs the rider of gear position, fuel capacity, real time and average fuel economy, water temp, clock, and more—all presented in a high-contrast display.

 

High-torque 689cc CP2 engine
Delivering 73.4 PS @ 8750 rpm, the 689cc CP2 engine of the R7 o ers thrilling acceleration and instant throttle response. Its 270 degree crank gives an uneven ring interval that ensures a lively and exciting feel as the revs rise – and its linear torque output enables you to lay down the power efficiently for faster corner exits.

Athletic design with R-Series DNA
A key factor in achieving optimum performance is by having the smallest frontal area possible – and thanks to the compact dimensions of the CP2 engine, Yamaha’s designers have been able to develop an athletic bodywork that is slimmer than any other R-Series model. And with its sporty tucked-in riding position, the R7 slices through air smoothly and efficiently.

Aerodynamic cowling and twin eye face
You don’t need to see the Yamaha logo to know that this stunning new Supersport is part of the legendary R-Series family. The lightweight full fairing with aluminium lower panels has been shaped by pure R Series DNA, and features an aggressive twin-eye face with its M-shaped air duct and a powerful central LED headlight.

A&S clutch for increased controllability
The R7 is the rst CP2-engined Yamaha to be equipped with an Assist & Slipper (A&S) clutch that delivers smoother gear shifting and prevents engine over-rev and rear wheel hop during hard braking, resulting in more predictable and controllable handling when approaching corners. And this A&S clutch also o ers a much lighter feel at the lever.

Lightweight frame ne-tuned for chassis rigidity
With a wet weight of only 188 kg, the R7 features a compact frame that makes it the slimmest bike in the R-Series family. Its balance of rigidity has been ne-tuned with an aluminium centre brace as well as by using tubing with varying tensile strengths – and these key features contribute towards the bike’s outstandingly agile and responsive handling characteristics.

Fully-adjustable inverted 41 mm front forks
The KYB 41 mm Inverted front forks give a planted and con dent feeling on racetracks and twisty roads. Featuring full adjustability for preload as well as rebound and compression damping – and equipped with a gravity cast upper triple clamp and forged aluminium lower triple clamp – this highspecification front end gives excellent controllability and precision.
