I have had my my-07 for 2 months now. I think it’s a really good bike for the price point. I use to commute and it’s very comfortable with the wide wing seat that allows you a few different riding positions (I’m 6 foot) and is way more power then I will even need.
Yamaha usually only makes the top quality bikes and with the MT-07 they have proved me right it gives me an amazing fuel efficiency and it's really smooth to drive looking at the immensely high speeds it can reach. It is honestly a pleasure to drive it every day. Love it.
If you have read any of my other reviews you will know that I am a returning rider who currently owns a Honda CBR300R and I am in the process of going through options for upgrading from the 300cc to something a bit more powerful and better for some longer trips.
I ventured into the local Yamaha Dealer (BayCity Moto Hervey Bay) and saw the MT07 Tracer and was instantly impressed, as I plan to do some long trips and I hate the wind blowing the bike and sometimes me around I thought this looked like a good option. After a bit of a look around I o...
A fun bike that has character
Great bike to ride and has character which is really engaging. Very light and handles like it is on rails, seat is ok for a couple of hours riding. Smooth motor with no vibration thanks to the 270 degree crankshaft and plenty of power even though it is a LAMS approved. Excellent on fuel returning 3.8 to 4.0 litres/100 giving a range of 450 Kms. The main downside is the harsh suspension which can be uncomfortable on rough bitumen. I have ordered a Nitron Shock for the rear and experimenting with preload on the front forks. Highly recommend this ...bike for touring or commuting am very pleased with my purchase. March 16th 2018 Update: Update on first 12 months This is the best motorcycle I have ever had. After 12000 kms it never ceases to amaze me how good this bike is. I have fitted a Nitron shock to fix the harsh rebound and changed to lighter front fork oil which has really improved the ride. Fuel economy is between 21 and 33 kms/ litre depending on speed and conditions giving between 350 and 500 kms per tank. After a recent 3500 km trip with one 1000 km day I found the comfort quite acceptable as the seat is firm. No bike is perfect and I have ridden many motorcycles but this bike is a keeper. Congratulations to Yamaha for making a bike that has soul.
