The Japanese factory has updated its inimitable MT-07 for 2021.

It’s not a massive overhaul, but there are a handful of key changes to make the new bike significantly different from the outgoing model. First off, it’s got a new look – with a new three-part LED headlight similar to the recently released MT-09 – and the tank’s been reshaped too.


As you’d expect, the motor has been updated for to meet Euro 5 regulations – but there’s not a massive difference to the much loved crossplane twin from the previous model. A new 2-1 pipe and an ECU are the big changes. There are larger discs up front for improved stopping power, a set of wider bars and some new tyres too. There’s also a new LCD dash which can be operated using a switch on the handlebar.

Although it’s not a big change, it’s great to see Yamaha has got its much loved MT-07 ready to go ahead of the incoming Euro 5 regulations. We can’t wait to ride it when it comes into UK dealers this March.
