After the MT09 comes the Mt07 which I liked the look of the spec sheet. 70 odd geegees and 170kgs looked good on paper so I went for a demo today. I know it,s not an adventure bike but I am sure Yamaha must be considering making one. I do a 30 mile daily city commute between Bath and Bristol and miss the old Honda CB500 for its light weight and super smooth engine so the MT appealed on paper. £5332 otr is the first Yam for some time priced reasonably sensibly so lets hope they don,t get carried away and start lumping it up like they did with many others in their range in the last few years! First thing is it feels narrow and light. My 6ft3" frame fitted well on the small bike. Off up the road and the injection is good and it,s got some poke. Things were on the up. 2 lorries in front of me were despatched in one sensible hit and flinging round the bends the bike felt firmish and well controlled and I started thinking stick this lightweight motor in a xt660z like frame and keep it down to 6k and Yamaha would be onto a winner. Felt nicer, lighter and pokier than a ER6 I tried last year. I believe than light weight is the key to a lively bike and this thing rocks! Not often I get back from a demo and am genuinely tempted. £5k+ is still a lot of dough in my world and there are a lot of secondhand Hornets and Triumph 675s with a lot more power lurking around at this price but if you fancy a brand spankerz new bike this baby is right at the top of the list.
