Pros and Cons in comparison

Pros and Cons in comparison

Yamaha MT-07 2018

Yamaha MT-07 2018

The MT-07 is an incredible fun machine that is extremely sporty to ride. The brakes pack a punch, the handling is superb and the engine is currently by far the most agile power unit in this class - and even above. The light handling fits in perfectly and the aggressive design with its many corners and edges is also appealing. Only the chassis makes the typically good compromise between comfort and sport and should probably remind you that the affordable MT-07 also has a lot to offer beginners.
