Yamaha YZF-R7 Overview
Yamah announced that production of the YZF-R6 would end in 2020. The well-loved R6 would continue its life as a track-only motorcycle in the European market, much to the chagrin of sportbike fans everywhere. The Tuning Fork Company did, however, release the YZF-R7 as a replacement for the R6.
The YZF-R7 is based on the same platform as the Yamaha MT-07 and uses the same CP2 engine. A 689cc parallel-twin engine with a 270-degree crankshaft powers the bike. Its highest power output is around 73 horsepower.
Thanks to inverted front forks and race-ready supersport ergonomics, the YZF-R7 has quick handling characteristics. Its appearance is also quite similar to the R6, with a threatening front fascia and hidden LED running lights.
The Yamaha 60th Anniversary Edition YZF-R7 also made an appearance at the Inside Racing Bike Fest, although the price of this limited-edition model has yet to be revealed by Yamaha. It does, however, feature a gorgeous livery that includes Yamaha's distinctive white and red color scheme as well as the legendary Speed Blocks design seen on Kenny Roberts' racing motorcycles.
