Supersport riding position
The YZF-R7's carefully developed rider's triangle and racing-inspired cockpit put you in a comfortable, confidence-inspiring riding position. A new seat combined with new tank covers featuring deep knee pockets, provide optimal hip and knee positioning. Riders get the freedom to adjust positions while also maintaining a firmly planted feel in corners and sturdy body hold under braking. Separate clip-on handlebars are set in relation to the rider's hip and footpeg placement for a commanding riding position.
Inverted front fork
The YZF-R7 features a preload, rebound and compression adjustable inverted KYB 41 mm front fork offering optimized spring rates and damping settings for an excellent front-end feel during cornering and braking.
Lightweight frame tuned for rigidity balance
A high-strength steel frame with a rigid-mount aluminium centre brace provides an optimized balance of rigidity for linear and nimble responsiveness to rider input.
Monocross rear shock
The all-new linked-type Monocross single-shock design reduces weight and further centralizes mass. Its adjustable spring preload and rebound damping are tuned to strike an ideal balance between ride comfort and sporty performance, for capability across a wide range of uses from urban commuting to track days.
A newly-designed radial brake master cylinder from Brembo combines with radial-mounted front brake callipers on dual 298 mm front brake rotors to optimize braking pressure for linear delivery with excellent performance and controllability.
Thin proportions for perfect control
All-new dimensions give the YZF-R7 the slimmest proportions of the entire R-Series family, aiding in confident cornering performance on the track and quick, agile direction changes on twisty roads. The slim design also reduces wind resistance for optimal aerodynamics, while new bodywork incorporates the rider's body to improve the flow of air around the bike.
Sporty new suspension
The YZF-R7 features an inverted 41 mm front fork with optimized spring rate and damping settings for an excellent front-end feel during cornering and braking. An all-new linked-type Monocross single-shock with adjustable spring preload and rebound damping strikes an ideal balance between riding comfort and supersport performance, with capability across a wide range of uses from urban commuting to track days.
Adaptive Bi-Functional LED Headlight
The iconic R-Series M-shaped intake duct and twin-eye look compliment the all-new YZF-R7 along with an adaptive bi-functional LED headlight.
Light Emitted Diode (LED) elements are used for the front and rear turn signals, the tail light unit and the headlights. Not only do LEDs offer long life with minimal power draw, but they also provide brilliant illumination for confidence and visibility day or night.
Refined Sportbike Ergonomics
Thanks to the low-profile fuel tank design and compact clip-on handlebar position, the rider can naturally grip the machine for confidence, especially when tucking aggressively behind the windscreen on the racetrack.
Sleek R-Series Styling
The YZF-R7's aggressive new design is next-generation R-Series styling, with the slimmest bodywork in the supersport lineup for optimal aerodynamics, handling and agility. The glaring face of the YZF-R7 features a compact LED headlight housed in the iconic M-shaped intake duct, while its sharp tail is reminiscent of the YZF-R1.
Digital LCD Instrumentation
A new full-LCD instrument panel informs the rider of gear position, fuel capacity, real-time and average fuel economy, water temp, clock, and more—all presented in a high-contrast display.
