FROM R HERITAGE COMES R WORLD
Torquey CP2 Powerplant
Yamaha's proven 689cc liquid-cooled, inline 2-cylinder DOHC fuel-injected CP2 engine delivers excellent power and performance throughout the rpm range for an exhilarating ride and a true supersport experience. Its 270-degree crankshaft delivers linear torque for exciting acceleration and limited vibration.
Sporty New Suspension
The YZF-R7 features an inverted 41mm front fork with an optimized spring rate and damping settings for an excellent front-end feel during cornering and braking. An all-new linked-type Monocross single-shock with adjustable spring preload and rebound damping strikes an ideal balance between ride comfort and supersport performance.
Distinctive World GP 60th Anniversary Edition Styling
From the distinctive 60th Anniversary Yamaha Heritage White and Rapid Red chain-block livery to the numerous special detailing touches, including gold forks, gold wheels, Yamaha factory race-bike gold Tuning Fork emblems, black levers and special commemorative badging on the airbox cover.
Digital LCD Instrumentation
A new full-LCD instrument panel informs the rider of gear position, fuel capacity, real-time and average fuel economy, water temp, clock, and more—all presented in a high-contrast display.
Linear Torque with Smooth Acceleration
The all-new YZF-R7 boasts a 270-degree crankshaft that delivers a tactile experience of pulse and acceleration with limited vibration. The CP2 engine provides the rider a linear-feeling, direct connection from the throttle to the rear wheel.
Refined Sportbike Ergonomics
Thanks to the low-profile fuel tank design and compact clip-on handlebar position, the rider is able to naturally grip the machine for confidence, especially when tucking aggressively behind the windscreen on the racetrack.
Lightweight Frame Tuned for Rigidity Balance
A high-strength steel frame with a rigid-mount aluminium centre brace provides an optimized balance of rigidity for linear and nimble responsiveness to rider input.
Thin Proportions for Perfect Control
All-new dimensions give the YZF-R7 the slimmest proportions of the entire R-Series family, aiding in confident cornering performance on the track and quick, agile direction changes on twisty roads. The slim design also reduces wind resistance for optimal aerodynamics, while new bodywork incorporates the rider's body to improve the flow of air around the bike.
Strong, Lightweight Pistons
Forged aluminium pistons with direct-plated cylinders integrated with the crank case make for lighter weight and excellent strength at extreme temperatures, ensuring reliability at higher rpm.
A newly-designed radial brake master cylinder from Brembo combines with radial-mounted front brake calipers on dual 298mm front brake rotors to optimize braking pressure for linear delivery with excellent performance and controllability.
Monocross Rear Shock
The all-new linked-type Monocross single-shock design reduces weight and further centralizes mass. Its adjustable spring preload and rebound damping are tuned to strike an ideal balance between ride comfort and sporty performance, for capability across a wide range of uses from urban commuting to track days.
