2020 Yamaha MT-07 Buyer’s Guide: Specs & Price

2020 Yamaha MT-07 for sale

With the introduction of the MT-03, the 2020 Yamaha MT-07 moves up a slot in the Masters of Torque hierarchy. Instead of being presented as an entry point in the MT family, it’s now a step-up model. Thanks to its friendly yet capable crossplane crankshaft twin-cylinder CP2 powerplant, the MT-07 is happy to cruise around town casually, while being ready to pounce in the canyons at a moment’s notice.

The handling on the MT-07 is responsive, and it weighs in at just over 400 pounds with its 3.7-gallon tank filled. That works in its favor as both an urban and sporting motorcycle. Yamaha helps the MT-07 embrace its multi-purpose capabilities with suspension that suited toward a rider who wants comfort on city streets, as well as a bit of cush in the twisties. Although the MT-07 is not a committed sport motorcycle, it is no slouch in the corners thanks to its light weight, sporting geometry, and accomplished motor.

With a great burble thanks to the 270-degree crank firing sequence, the 2020 Yamaha MT-07 is a great commuter motorcycle (a claimed 58 mpg), fun to knock around town on, and ready to ambush a lazy rider of a larger motorcycle on the tightest roads.
