2023 Yamaha MT-07 Buyer’s Guide [Price, Colors, Specs]

2023 Yamaha MT-07 Buyer's Guide: Price

Yamaha’s popular midsize parallel-twin sportbike is back with upgrades. The 2023 Yamaha MT-07 features a new TFT display and prewiring for a quickshifter—a $200 accessory. The five-inch TFT display can be connected to your Android or iOS smartphone via Bluetooth using the Y-Connect app. The three color choices—Cyan Storm, Team Yamaha Blue, and Matte Raven Black—are back from last year.

The Yamaha MT-07 has been a favorite among upright sportbike fans thanks to its muscular CP2 motor, which uses an uneven firing pattern to mimic a V-twin feel and offer tractable power. It’s a welcoming motorcycle for riders new to the sportbike genre thanks to predictable handling and power delivery, plus a manageable 31.7-inch seat height and 406-pound curb weight.

The KYB suspension offers minimal damping adjustments—only the shock’s rebound is adjustable, and the fork has no adjustments. Rather than a stiff hypersport setup, the 2023 Yamaha MT-07 suspension works well for riders who use it as a city bike, and a canyon carver. Twin 298mm discs with traditionally mounted four-piston calipers slow things down; ABS is standard. Michelin Road 5 tires provide good traction for those looking to carve corners. We learned all this during our last test of the Yamaha MT-07.
