The 2021 MT-07 features an updated, compact 689cc liquid-cooled, inline twin cylinder, DOHC engine with fuel injection. The unique power character of the engine provides outstanding low- to mid-range torque with a linear throttle response and strong high-rpm pulling power. Maximizing riding excitement in the real world, the engine maintains the same level of response due to its intake air duct design, exhaust system specs - now integrated 2-into-1 exhaust pipes and muffler - and updated ECU specs. The fuel injection settings were also optimized to bring refinements to the engine’s linear response characteristics while the throttle is slightly open at low rpm. Other updates include new valve seats with excellent abrasion resistance for the exhaust side, improved gearshift feel thanks to different cut angles for the dog gears, and repositioning for the catalytic converter - now closer to the headers - and oxygen sensor.
To alleviate any sense of narrowness, the 2021 MT-07 features a new tapered handlebar that is 32mm wider and 19mm taller and offers improved feelings of control and comfort for a wider range of rider sizes.
Joining the 3rd generation MT style - as featured on the 2021 MT-09 - the 2021 MT-07's new look further brings out its distinctive appeal with fashion-leading colors and graphics. The newly designed parts and components are integrated with minimal structural elements, creating an attractive design that emphasizes pure Hyper Naked character. With a silhouette that is synonymous with the MT Series' signature statement of torque and power, the MT-07 showcases a tight, compact and powerful appearance.
With new LED lighting for the position lights, headlight and both front and rear turn signals, the 2021 MT-07 exhibits clear and powerful illumination with a modern design.
