2022 Yamaha YZF-R7 globally unveiled


The new Yamaha R7 bridges the gap between the brand’s R3 and the litre-class R1 superbike.

Yamaha has globally unveiled its all-new YZF-R7 sportbike. The new R7 is the latest model in Yamaha’s R-Series. It replaces the brand’s R6 model and bridges the gap between the R3 and the R1 superbike.

The all-new Yamaha YZF-R7 features a fully-faired design, with rear-set footpegs, clip-on handlebars, a skinny seat and a sculpted fuel tank. The motorcycle also features a single-pod projector headlamp, with LED DRLs on either side. It gets a fully digital LCD instrument cluster as well. The 2022 Yamaha R7 will be offered in two colour choices: Team Yamaha Blue & Raven Black.

The new middleweight fully-faired sportbike is based on the brand’s MT-07 streetfighter. The new Yamaha R7 carries forward the same 689cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin CP2 engine. It produces 72 BHP @ 8,750 rpm and 67 Nm @ 6,500 rpm; paired with a 6-speed gearbox with assist and slipper-clutch offered as standard.

The new YZF-R7 gets 41 mm KYB upside-down front forks and a mono-shock setup at the rear, both with preload and rebound adjustability. Braking is handled by dual 298mm discs at the front and a single 245mm disc at the rear, supported by dual-channel ABS. The motorcycle rides on Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport tyres with 120/70 and 180/55 profiles at the front and rear, respectively.

Yamaha has priced the new YZF-R7 at US$ 8,999 (approximately Rs 6.57 lakh). The company is unlikely to bring the R7 to Indian shores anytime soon.
