Yamaha has officially unveiled the new Yamaha YZF-R7 2021 motorcycle. The novelty borrows the markings of the iconic line of sports bikes, but is equipped with a 689cc two-cylinder in-line engine. It is designed to fill the void between R1 and R3 since R6 has been discontinued.
The 2021 Yamaha YZF-R7 is based on the popular Yamaha MT-07 naked. At the same time, Japanese engineers have made significant improvements to create a comfortable bike for both the track and DOPs. The changes are not only visual, although the design of the fairing catches the eye first. Yamaha claims the Yamaha YZF-R7 body kit is the most refined in the R-series, although it inherits the curves and shapes of the YZF-R1. A steel frame with aluminum struts is installed under the fairing, on which the swingarm and the rear engine mount are mounted.
The engine has also been redesigned to be more aggressive than the bare MT-07 unit. Yamaha engineers used forged aluminum pistons and direct cylinder liners.
