Yamaha MT-07 Dark Attraction Introduced

  • Hong Leong Yamaha Motor has launched the new MT-07.

  • The new colour options are themed as “Dark Attraction.”

  • Priced from RM 38,288 (inclusive of SST, but excluding insurance and registration fees).

Hong Leong Yamaha Motor Sdn. Bhd. (HLYM) has introduced an updated MT-07. The latest edition is themed as MT-07 Dark Attraction and is available from October 2018.

The MT-07’s distinctive styling and shape have been retained, including the muscular faux air scoops that are reminiscent of the V-Max power cruiser. The overall MT design theme still stands up to the test of time since its introduction.

However, as with its bigger MT-09 brother, the MT-07 has been improved, mostly in the rolling stock department.

  • Revised front fork settings.
  • New rear shock with rebound damping adjuster.
  • Addition of anti-lock braking system (ABS) on both ends.
  • Ergonomic seats for more comfortable riding.

The compact 689cc, parallel-Twin engine’s “crossplane” crank is offset by 270o to mimic the firing order of a 90o V-Twin for punchy torque yet linear in response.

The new MT-07 will be offered in two colours. Race Blue is available immediately from October 2018 onwards, while Matt Grey will be introduced in January 2019.

Buyers will receive an exclusive stainless steel Yamaha disc brake lock when they purchase an MT-07.

The recommended selling price is from RM 38,288 (inclusive of SST, but excluding insurance and registration fees).

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist.
