Its compact 689 cc, inline, 2-cylinder ‘crossplane philosophy’ engine is engineered to give you strong, linear torque for thrilling acceleration with outstanding economy.

The bold new body and sharper air intakes reinforce the strong MT family look – and the new seat gives an improved riding position. With refined front and rear suspension, the MT-07’s compact tubular chassis goes exactly where you point it…and takes you straight to the Dark Side of Japan.

The MT-07 is a motorcycle that offers big time fun, affordability and riding enjoyment. This versatile naked roadster offers deep engine torque from its 689 cc parallel twin and a comfortable upright riding position combined with a lightweight, easy-to-handle sport chassis. For 2018 the engineers have upgraded the suspension and redesigned the headlight, taillight and bodywork. The revised MT-07 is the perfect machine for both new and experienced riders alike who are looking for outstanding value in a mid-class sport bike.


For 2018, the MT-07 has been restyled to more closely resemble its bigger MT siblings. Revised aesthetic items include the headlight, front fender, air scoops, taillight, tail section and new colour options.


The ultra-reliable, liquid-cooled, 689cc, inline twin has been designed to provide deep torque in the most frequently used rpm range (3,000 to 6,500 rpm). A single balancer shaft keeps things silky smooth, while the 6-speed transmission with overdrive 6th gear reduces engine rpms at highway speeds.


ABS equipped dual 282 mm discs with 4 piston calipers up front and a 245 mm rear disc with single piston caliper provides piece of mind while braking under pressure or in wet conditions.
