2018 Yamaha MT-07 | First Ride Review

We were riding some of the best roads in Europe, but the heavy rain and wind put a damper on our fun–and work. This photo pass was the only one we got before the photographers called it off. (Photos and illustrations courtesy of Yamaha)
New model press launches are usually carefully curated affairs?perfectly curvy roads, impressive scenery, cool coffee stops and, of course, plenty of gastronomic delights. There?s one aspect, however, that?s completely out of even the most fastidious event planner?s control: the weather.
Read our comparison test of the FZ-07, Suzuki SV650 and Kawasaki Ninja 650
Yamaha thought it was playing it safe by booking the global launch of the refreshed 2018 MT-07 (formerly known Stateside as the FZ-07) in Marbella, on southern Spain?s Costa del Sol (?Sun Coast?). Situated on hills overlooking the Mediterranean and backed by picturesque mountains covered with squiggly pavement, it?s an ideal base for a day?s test ride with a gaggle of throttle-happy journalists. Well, usually.
Our day started out nice enough, as we cruised through several towns on our way to the mountains. (Photo by the author)
Instead of sunny skies and fast roads, our test ride day dawned cool and cloudy, and after a meager 40 km (about 25 miles) the skies opened up, slowing us down considerably but giving us a great opportunity to put our waterproof boots and rain gear to the test. On the one hand, this meant our ability to evaluate the MT-07 at an aggressive pace was limited?but on the other, it gave us an opportunity to ride it in ?real world? conditions?not that any motorcyclist really enjoys riding in 50 mph wind gusts and cascading sheets of rain. The MT-07’s tubular steel frame is unchanged from last year.
The MT-07 has enjoyed a light restyle for 2018, including revised suspension that is stiffer and employs more compression and rebound damping, a roomier rider and passenger seat (seat height remains the same at 31.7 inches), a redesigned tank cover, a new headlight, front turn signals that have been relocated to just above the redesigned radiator cover, a restyled tail with new LED tail light, and standard ABS (formerly a $500 option).
Its 689cc parallel twin is also unchanged. In this cutout view you can see how the cylinders are offset from the crankshaft, the same technique as that used on the YZR-M1 MotoGP racebike and the MT-09.
The ?MT,? by the way, stands for ?Master of Torque,? a nomenclature ostensibly derived from the MT-01 muscle bike, but as EIC Tuttle discovered it also happens to be the title of an anime series produced by Yamaha in Japan. The first episode is called ?Idle Roughness.? We kid you not.
Despite a few pops of blue sky, the clouds were building quickly. It wasn’t a question of if we’d get wet…it was when. (Photo by the author)
We?ve been smitten with the FZ-07 since it was first introduced in 2014 as a 2015 model: it?s fun, inexpensive and has a lot of character for what some would conside...
