The next-generation MT-07 gets distinctive new bodywork with twin winglet-type air intakes and a compact new LED headlight that projects a futuristic Y-shape face – the signature style for the latest Hyper Naked models. And the refined ‘Learner Approved’ 655cc engine gives you even more linear response with a gutsier exhaust note.
New wider aluminium taper handlebars give easier turning and a more commanding riding position, while larger 298mm dual front discs deliver stronger braking – and the inverted LCD instruments as well as black control levers and compact LED flashers underline the top specification and best-in-class value.
655CC PARALLEL TWIN
The latest 'Learner approved' 655cc 2-cylinder CP2 engine features a revised air intake duct design and optimised fuel injector settings, as well as a new 2-into-1 exhaust and new ECU. These changes gives the MT-07 a more linear engine response.
LARGER FRONT BRAKES
MT-07's front dual disc size is increased from 282mm on the previous model to 298mm on the new bike, giving more stopping power and greater controllability with no gain in weight. Together with the 245mm rear disc, the new system offers increased performance – and with the fitment of the new tyres, the increased stopping power is especially apparent in wet conditions.
NEXT GENERATION DESIGN
New winglets on the sides of the newly-designed 14-litre fuel tank give the bike a more dynamic stance. The new fuel tank covers are manufactured from injection-moulded plastic resin to reduce weight, and a 3D moulded texture is featured around the rider's knee grip area to give improved controllability for a sportier character.
LED PROJECTOR LIGHTING
Modern, compact and lightweight, the new bifunctional LED headlight features a centrally-located high/low projector lamp. This compact projector headlight produces a powerful beam with well-defined edges that provide excellent visibility. New left and right side dual-layer LED position lights give the MT-07 a signature Y-shape face that reaffirms its close family ties with the MT-09.
Along with a new LED headlight the MT-07 is also equipped with new high intensity indicators at the front and rear. Lighter and more compact, they complement the next generation style of the bike and reinforce the premium specification of this best-selling Hyper Naked.
The model now features higher specification LCD instruments with spot colour. This new inverted multifunction display is compact and lightweight with larger displays for the clock, gear, tripmeters and tachometer provides clear information.
LATEST GENERATION TYRES
New specification Michelin PR5 tyres – 180/55-17 at the rear and 120/70-17 at the front – provide excellent levels of traction, sporty handling performance and excellent wet weather handling qualities, making the MT-07 the ideal choice for new and experienced riders.
FULL COLOUR TFT INSTRUMENTS
The new 3.5-inch TFT full colour display shows clear and precise data. Its lightweight construction and mid-sized layout has been chosen to blend seamlessly with the new LED headlight assembly and maintain the compact and agile feeling from the rider's viewpoint. The bar-type tachometer changes colour as rpm rise and falls, and the display includes a clock, gearshift indicator, water and air temperature and more. The new display is linked with the 6-axis IMU, and riders can switch between displays and also select their preferred mode for the electronic aids via a handlebar-mounted switch.
QUICK SHIFT SYSTEM
For ultimate acceleration the MT-09 gets a Quick Shift System (QSS) that ensures seamless and clutchless full-throttle upshifts and smooth downshifts. Together with the A&S clutch, this electronic aid transforms the riding experience and enables the rider to optimise the increased torque levels for more thrilling acceleration as well as higher levels of chassis stability and control when downshifting.
