MT-07LA offers the most fun introduction to the joys of motorcycling for riders Down Under. With power maximised for the LAMs limit, delivered precisely when and where you want it, MT-07LA has that special quality of having heaps of get-up-and-go but without being intimidating. This is helped by a lightweight chassis package, great brakes and sticky tyres.
Now for 2018, handling is even more surefooted thanks to increased damping and stiffer springs up front and new rebound adjustment out back. Comfort has also been improved with a new seat.
And the icing on the cake is a hot new look including a sleek headlight, new bars, fender seat and body panels that align the new model with other Street Cred models in the MT range.
And the MT07 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-07 such a special character is its 655cc 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-07 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.
