The MT story continues for as Yamaha announce the launch of the new MT-07, an agile roadster exciting torque levels reinforces Yamaha’s expanding MT Its overall style, emotional character and engaging qualities fit into the ‘Dark Side of MT family.

Featuring an all-new inline 2-cylinder engine strong torque, and equipped a light and compact backbone-type frame, the MT-

new MT-07 is one motorcycle that be defined or classified by its specification alone. For the record, the figures for new model that everybody to look at straightaway are 74.8PS, RPM, and 179kg wet weight weight 164kg).

But in reality, figures only tell a small part of the MT story, the MT-07 has not been designed to be the fastest, most powerful, or most sophisticated. Simply this new motorcycle has been to offer the mid-class category a new of riding excitement that is by the MT-07’s exciting torque and its chassis design’s ability to the passion that first each one of us to motorcycling.

The MT-07 is to bring a new passion to the mid-class With its high levels of and easy handling nature, is an incredible package offering value for money, making it an proposition from many points of view.

New 689cc in-line 2 cylinder When designing the basic of the new engine, our engineers’ aim was to build a and exciting powerplant that accentuate the emotions experienced by the in a variety of situations. This is all about highlighting and focusing the enjoyment that comes everyday riding.

So rather simply focusing on achieving power and maximum torque we set out to create an engine which deliver strong emotion being very easy and to ride.

The crucial ingredient makes the new inline 2-cylinder engine stand out is the fact it has been developed using “Crossplane philosophy”. This is an concept that seeks to power output characteristics, providing more predictable and engine response, making compact and lightweight sports more accessible and more for a wider range of riders.

and compact inline 2 cylinder a wide usable powerband:  The 689cc liquid-cooled 4-… 2-cylinder DOHC engine a 270-degree crank layout and an exceptionally compact single-axis The engine has been designed to a power output of 55kw/75 PS, being very compact and at the same time. So in terms of and specifications the engine positions at the top of its class.

On the other hand, its focus on low and mid rpm torque, its offers a wide range of usability exciting sports riding to casual cruising and efficient

“Crossplane philosophy” for enhanced output characteristics: The MT-07′s new 2-cylinder engine has been to deliver class leading while also having a focus on delivering exceptional but to control torque output in the low and mid rpm

The target of ‘easy to control is mainly achieved by implementing the “Crossplane Philosophy” layout. It is all the best harmonization of the engine’s forces – the combustion torque by the igniting fuel) and the inertial (created by the rotating crank and the up and movement of the pistons). Once two torque forces are aligned (called ‘clean torque’), the gets a more clear on the power delivery and therefore can the power output and the rear traction in a more precise and way.

For inline 2-cylinder the most efficient layout to ‘clean torque’ is to use a 270-degree with uneven firing While the 270- degree layout has proven its great already in the TDM900 and the XT1200Z engines, the MT-07 twin a lot of excitement by combining its easy to power delivery with riding dynamics – such as its leading power output and low – and a great twin cylinder character including ‘good and a unique deep sound.

single-axis balancer:  Yamaha’s team have gone to lengths towards minimizing the overall weight by significantly the weight of every component. For the compact single-axis balancer is one of the of its kind in the market. By reducing the between the crank and balancer this new design helps to engine dimensions low.

with the use of rubber engine the single-axis balancer reduces for a more enjoyable experience.

cylinder design for increased efficiency

At the press launch of the in September, many participants on the impressive fuel economy of flagship MT model. Increasing engine efficiency is crucially for environmental, economic and practical and Yamaha’s designers have successful in achieving outstanding of fuel efficiency with the new MT- 07.

One of the key in being able to attain fuel economy is the reduction in loss within the engine. to a conventional design in which the con rod is when combustion occurs, the cylinder design reduces losses between the piston and and transmits power more

Harmonized transmission and engine

Strong and impressive torque is a key on all MT models, and the MT- 07 has been designed in a way that riders can accelerate and with minimal gear especially in the middle to high (4th to 6th). Eliminating the for frequent gear changes for a more enjoyable, rewarding and ride, and it may come as something of a surprise for riders of mid-capacity 4-cylinder motorcycles.

In order to the potential of the MT-07’s linear features such as the 6-speed gear ratios, as well as the injection settings and the mass of the have been developed in to create an exciting engine is very easy to control.

fuel injection system

A new injection system with a fuel pump design a significant contribution towards the overall character and rideability of the As well as delivering strong performance, this highly design also gives fuel efficiency for reduced costs.

Other significant that contribute towards fuel efficiency include forged pistons and lens combustion chambers, as well as the cylinder design.

Lightweight and 2-into1 exhaust

The MT-07’s exhaust system takes its cue the design seen on the MT-09, and a stubby muffler fed by gracefully offset pipes that with the short upswept beneath the engine. The sculpted give a feeling of dynamism every angle, and the compact features a 3-way honeycomb The system also features an feedback control that environmental standards and exceeds EU3

The compact exhaust system is to the MT-series theme of mass which enhances the light and handling character.
