The Yamaha YZF-R7 was recently showcased along with a few other models at a recent dealer event. And select Yamaha dealers have already begun taking reservations for booking this bike (unofficially). However, Yamaha is yet to formally announce the launch date of the YZF-R7. But here’s everything we know about this upcoming Yamaha bike before it comes to India.
The Yamaha YZF-R7 headed for India will resemble the international-spec model in terms of design. A few of the styling features of the future YZF-R7 are the following -
Other styling features include:
In the international markets, Yamaha YZF-R7 is offered in 2 colours — Icon Blue and Yamaha Black. Both shades are anticipated to enter the Indian market.
The India-bound Yamaha YZF-R7 will use the same 689cc, parallel twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled CP2 engine that powers the MT-07. The motor has a 270-degree crankshaft, which causes an irregular firing pattern. When connected to a 6-speed gearbox, this motor is configured to produce 67 Nm at 6,500 rpm and 72.4bhp at 8,750 rpm. The gearbox features a slipper clutch and assists as standard features, while a quick shift system is an additional component that may be added.
The international model of Yamaha YZF-R7 features -
A Bluetooth module is noticeably absent from the international edition, and the unit destined for India is probably also missing the connectivity capability.
Since the hardware on the model headed for India is probably not going to change, we anticipate the forthcoming YZF-R7 will feature a diamond-type frame. The suspension system should comprise upside-down front forks that are completely adjustable and made by KYB and a rear mono-shock with preload and rebound damping adjustments. Most likely, a single 245mm rotor and two 298mm discs positioned radially at the front and back, respectively, will do the braking duties.
In the Indian market, the Kawasaki Ninja 650 and the Honda CBR 650R will directly compete with the Yamaha YZF-R7. Therefore, we anticipate that the pricing of the Yamaha YZF-R7 will be closer to that of the Kawasaki Ninja 650 than that of the inline four-cylinder Honda bike. The Yamaha YZF-R7, which is destined for India, may thus cost between Rs. 7 and Rs. 8 lakhs (ex-showroom, India). The YZF-R7 is anticipated to arrive in India in the second half of 2023, as was previously announced, and unofficial bookings have already started at a number of dealers.
