The Yamaha MT-07 Is As Good As Everyone Says It Is

Cycle World Logo By Seth Richards of Cycle World | Slide 1 of 13: Usually, I get dozens of photos taken at a bike launch. Because of the weather, which only got worse from here, the standard photo shoots were canceled. Instead we followed a cameraman in the back of a van as he took some tracking shots. I got three shots total.

The Yamaha MT-07 (née FZ-07) is a motorcycle destined to be canonized as one of The Great Standard Bikes of the 21st Century. At $7,599, it’s a massive overachiever. As a turnkey daily rider, a racebike project, a first bike, or a thirtieth bike, the MT-07 transcends its categorization. It’s not a budget bike; it’s a bargain bike.
