Fun, affordable, and exciting transportation are what many motorcyclists care about. Sportbikes are great and all, but if we’re honest, they’re a bit impractical. So when Yamaha introduced the MT-07 at EICMA this year, we took notice.

The baby brother of the three-cylinder FZ-09 (called the MT-09 abroad), the MT-07 shares many of the design cues of the 09, but utilizes an all-new, 689cc parallel-Twin, claimed to make about 75 hp. Aimed to an as-yet-undisclosed, but affordable price point, suspension and braking components are relatively bland. That said, the fun (and practical!) quotient of the MT-07 still promises to be quite high.

Check out what Editor in Chief Kevin Duke thinks about the new Yamaha MT-07 in the video below.
