And just about everything about this versatile new naked bike - from its deep torque through to the agile chassis and outstanding economy - make it hard to resist for both newer and experienced riders.
The all-new 689cc inline 2-cylinder engine benefits from our special 'crossplane philosophy' which enables it to develop linear torque for outstanding acceleration. And the MT-07HO is also equipped with a compact and lightweight chassis for remarkable agility in traffic and easy handling on the open road, while ABS is now fitted as standard.
What gives the MT-07HO such a special character is its all-new 689cc inline 2-cylinder engine which has been developed using Yamaha's'crossplane philosophy'. With an uneven firing interval, the 270-degree crank gives a strong feeling of acceleration and great traction, and the deep linear torque ensures outstanding performance.
For easy manoeuvrability and remarkable agility, the MT-07HO runs with a light and slim steel backbone-type frame that utilizes the engine as a stressed member. Combined with its compact wheelbase and plush suspension systems, this strong and light chassis gives a responsive and engaging ride.
The MT-07HO is characterised by its mass-forward design that emphasises its athletic build and creates an immediate feeling of power. The slim fuel tank accentuates the bike's compact looks and offers excellent knee grip - while the lightweight air scoops and aluminium side covers give the MT a sporty and purposeful image.
