The rumours also follow the news of the retirement of its YZF-R6 – which leaves a sporty shaped hole right in the middle of Yamaha’s line up.

At this stage, there’s been no confirmation from the Japanese factory – but with rumours swirling and a gap in Yamaha’s range, it’s not much of a stretch to expect to see the new variant of the MT-07 in the not too distant future.
For now we’ll just have to sit tight and keep our fingers crossed.
