Feature Benefits

Top Features

  • Advanced Twin-Cylinder Engine
    The 2021 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 2021 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 3rd generation MT style - as featured on the 2021 MT-09 - the 2021 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 2021 MT-07 exhibits clear and powerful illumination with a modern design.

  • 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 2021 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.

Chassis/Suspension

  • Assertive Riding Position
    To alleviate any sense of narrowness, the 2021 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.
  • 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 2021 MT-07 features bigger 298mm front brake discs with 4-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 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

  • New LCD Meter
    The 2021 MT-07 features a new multifunction negative-display LCD dash with a black background and white readouts while RPMS of 10k - 12k are indicated with a red color. Designed specifically for the MT-07's cockpit, the arrangement of the information features a larger display for the clock, current gear, trip/odometers and tachometer. Trip 1, Trip 2 and Trip F, the temperature and other meter functions can be toggled and reset with the left handlebar thumb switch while key displays like the gear indicator are on the right while the tachometer are positioned along the top.

New for 2021

  • Updated 689cc CP2 Engine
    The 2021 MT-07 features an updated 689cc liquid-cooled in-line 2-cylinder CP2 engine. The 270° crankshaft is based on Yamaha’s Crossplane Concept, and the bore × stroke of 80.0 mm × 68.6 mm and 11.5:1 compression ratio produce maximum torque at 6,500 RPM. The intake air duct design, exhaust system specs - now integrated 2-into-1 exhaust pipes and muffler - and ECU specs were changed. The fuel injection settings were optimized for a smoother delivery of power when the throttle is slightly open at low rpm. Together, these updates maintain the same level of engine response as before for easy-to-use performance. Other updates include new valve seats with excellent abrasion resistance for the exhaust side, an improved gearshift feel thanks to different cut angles for the dog gears, and repositioning of the catalytic converter - now closer to the headers - and the oxygen sensor.
