The Yamaha R7 is Already Confirmed


With the new motorcycle the Japanese firm Yamaha is intended to cover the large gap that currently exists between the YZF R3 and the R1, since the R6 has stopped being imported to Europe (only on demand for those who want to compete).

BikeSocial has discovered the entry of the YZF-R7 nomenclature in the US emission registry offices. Specifically, there are two different acronyms, YZFR7NCB and YZFR7NCL, that is, two versions. Because it is a two-cylinder (there was a four-cylinder R7 at the end of the 90s, limited edition), we were betting that its name would be MT-07R, although apparently Yamaha has chosen to rescue the mythical acronym R7.

The emissions declared are the same as those of the MT-07, which would indicate that there are no variations with respect to the two-cylinder of the naked. So we expect the same 73 hp at 8,750 rpm, and a torque of 67 Nm at 6,500 rpm.

The same for the cycle part, unless one of the two versions has more adjustable suspensions. The aesthetics should be similar to that of the R6 and R1.

The price will possibly be similar to that of the Tracer.
