Yamaha has launched the 2023 MT-07 in Europe. The updated Japanese Streetfighter benefits from a few worthy updates in its latest iteration. Let’s take a look.
2023 Yamaha MT-07 with LED projector headlight flanked by LED DRL. Similar to the fascia, the remaining bodywork also looks quite muscular. However, it now features a new 5-inch convertible TFT format and smartphone connectivity. It allows the passenger to view incoming calls and messages and display all essential reading data.
The 2023 Yamaha MT-07 is powered by a 689cc liquid-cooled twin-cylinder motor. The output is rated at 73.4 hp and 67 Nm. The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox, and Yamaha also offers an optional Quickshift transmission for the same.
It rides on telescopic front forks and a linked monoshock. Braking hardware, meanwhile, includes dual 298mm front discs and a 245mm rear disc with ABS. Yamaha has outfitted the MT-07 with 17-inch wheels wrapped in 120/70 tyres at the front and 180/55 Michelin Road 5 at the rear.
In Europe, the 2023 Yamaha MT-07 retails for GBP 7,500 (roughly Rs. 7.50 lakh excluding tax). There has been no announcement from Yamaha India regarding the launch of the bike in our country.
