2014 Yamaha MT-07 - November 6, 2013, 06:59 AM

USA version? plz







ra says:
The 2014 Yamaha MT-07 is powered by a 689cc parallel-twin and should cost considerably less thanks to its steel-tube frame and more basic components.

The all-new engine produces strong power and torque at relatively low revs and the whole thing is surprisingly lightweight.

The new “Crossplane Crankshaft” engine uses a V-like 270-degree firing order for strong low-down torque and to increase feel at the rear tire. It makes 74 bhp at 9,000 rpm and 50 lb.-ft. of torque at just 6,500 rpm. The bars that make up the tachometer in the digital dash are “taller” through the 4-8,000rpm range where torque is strongest.

Weight is kept to an extremely low 394 lbs, a figure which includes a full 3.7-gallon fuel tank. That will help deliver excellent handling and around-town maneuverability, while helping make the bike accessible for newer riders. In comparison, the 847 cc FZ-09 weighs 414 lbs (wet).

The MT-07′s low weight is made possible by a simple, steel tube backbone frame and diminutive proportions

it's cool...but would either torpedo the sale of the FZ09 or get passed over for the FZ09.

I remember when Yamaha sold the FZR600, YZF600, and R6 all the same year. They saturated their own market.

yes, this works well in markets with graduated licensing or tiered insurance based on cc's (europe)

same reason Triumph is coming out with a bitchin Daytona 250 we will not see. Imagine that as a starter bike...

still, the MT 07 would make a cheap fun bike....

Need something to bite to begin racing with SV's in LWs... with them making no more it will dry up eventually.

I took pictures of the one at my local shop. That thread is mistakenly titled MT-07

I'm curious how much a difference that 20 pounds is going to make. Especially with 150cc less than the 9.

2 larger cylinders should make it feel torquey-er.

I'd defintiyl want to ride the 7, 8 and 9 back to back. Oddly enough, the 8 is the most expensive MSRP of the 3.


Then again... That's just me.

On the internet... Everyone is an expert.

And now...The dancing Banana:

supposedly the Triumph 250 is gonna come to the states to compete against the CBR250... we shall see I suppose.

If it does, I'm gonna be on the lookout for a crashed one for a commuter bike.

It's not even 20 lbs. From Yamaha's site:
FZ-09 wet weight 414 lbs
FZ-07 wet weight 397 lbs

That's only 17 lbs.

FZ8 weighs 467 lbs.

I didn't realize the FZ-07 was a twin. I thought it was a triple like the 09.

Interesting...

BTW, I believe 2013 was the last model year for the 8. Hence the reason Romney was unloading their last one stupid cheap (gone now).
