The News Cover: A new motorcycle is about to be added to Yamaha's global portfolio very soon. There was speculation that the Japanese brand was working on a supersport bike based on the MT-07 model. The company has not yet officially announced the name of the upcoming bike. Although the leaked patent document indicated, it could be a launch called YZF-R7. Now by uploading the teaser video, Yamaha seems to have given that signal.

The teaser video begins with a racing track scene in first person view. The video has just been switched from the racing track to Twisting Mountain Road. Again, curving at the corner of the road, pointing towards the dual nature of the bike, moving in the usual manner. The main thing that Yamaha is trying to explain through the teaser video is that the upcoming bike will be a track weapon as well as suitable for riding on public roads.


Meanwhile, Aprilia recently launched the RS 660 to take the middleweight segment by storm. Again the recent departure of the YZF-R6 model from Yamaha has created a gap in the portfolio. As a result, both events could be the catalyst for the arrival of Yamaha's new supersport motorcycle. Incidentally, an important piece of information about Yamaha's upcoming R series motorbikes came to light from a document submitted to the California Air Resources Board. The documentation confirmed that it would come in two variants. Our idea is that the two variants will be separated through the paint scheme.

The mechanical specifications of the new Yamaha R series bike or Yamaha YZF-R7 are not yet clear. There were rumors that work was underway on a supersport bike based on the MT-07 model. In that case the YZF-R7 bike may not see the YZF-R6's inline-four cylinder engine. Instead, it is likely to use a 69cc parallel twin engine. The engine is expected to produce 62.4 bhp of power at 6,650 rpm and 8 mm of torque at 6,500 rpm.
