Bridging the gap between the entry-level YZF-R3 and the prestigious YZF-R1, the 2023 YZF-R7 offers a unique package of performance and sporty styling that is true to its R-Series DNA and the lineup’s aspirational history of racing success. From its adjustable Monocross single-shock striking a balance between ride comfort and sporty performance to its proven engine and potent braking power, the R7 is designed to deliver the pinnacle of performance on and off the track.
Yamaha’s proven 689cc liquid-cooled, inline 2-cylinder DOHC fuel-injected CP2 engine delivers excellent power and performance throughout the rpm range for an exhilarating ride and a true supersport experience. Its 270-degree crankshaft delivers a tactile experience of pulse and acceleration with limited vibration. The CP2 engine provides the rider a linear-feeling connection from the throttle to the rear wheel.
