New LCD Instruments

The 2022 YZF-R7 features a new full LCD instrument panel. The high-contrast negative dashboard and its compact and lightweight multifunction display with larger displays for the clock, gear, trip meters and tachometer provide clear information. The use of spot colour gives an accent for the high-rpm range display – and new handlebar switches enables the rider to operate the meter more easily and efficiently.

689/655cc CP2 Engine

YZF-R7 uses Yamaha’s proven liquid-cooled, fourstroke, in-line two-cylinder, DOHC CP2 engine, giving the rider a feeling of a direct connection from the throttle to the rear wheel.Forged aluminium pistons with direct-plated cylinders integrated with the crankcase makes for lighter weight and excellent strength at higher temperatures, ensuring reliability at higher rpm. The crossplane engine’s 270-degree crank provides an uneven firing sequence with a more characterful exhaust note that emphasises torquey acceleration and linear power delivery for outstanding response at all engine speeds.

Additionally, the R7 has an optimised secondary gear ratio that creates an exhilarating ride and a sporty feel.

New LED Lighting

The iconic R-Series M-shaped intake duct and twin-eye front design of the new YZF-R7 houses an adaptive bi-functional LED headlight. The R7 is also equipped with a new LED taillight and front and rear turn signals. Light and compact, the new LED lighting complements the nextgeneration style of the bike and reinforces the premium specification of the supersport class. Not only do the LEDs offer long life with minimal power draw, they provide brilliant illumination for confidence and visibility day or night.

KYB Sports Suspension

The 2022 YZF-R7 features an inverted KYB 41mm front fork with optimised spring rate and
damping settings for an excellent front-end feel during cornering and braking. The product specific settings make for easy and predictable behaviour, with a stiff feel for twisty roads and racetracks. The fork is fully adjustable for preload, rebound and compression damping force. The inverted KYB front forks are mounted to the steering tube via a forged aluminium lower triple clamp, and a gravity-cast aluminium upper
triple clamp.
A linked-type Monocross shock with adjustable spring preload and rebound damping strikes
a balance between ride comfort and sporty performance for capability across a wide range
of uses, from urban commuting to track days. The rear shock unit is mounted horizontally, fastened to the crankcase for efficient use of space and weight, contributing to mass centralisation and further highlighting the bike’s compact size.

Potent Braking Power

The 2022 YZF-R7 is the first Yamaha model to feature a radial brake master cylinder from
Brembo. This new Brembo radial master cylinder provides a more linear supply of hydraulic pressure to the radial mounted, four pot front brake calipers creating excellent controllability and stopping power through dual 298mm front brake rotors.

Comfort-Focused Racing-Inspired Cockpit

The YZF-R7’s new racing-inspired cockpit puts the rider in a comfortable and confidenceinspiring position that evokes an eagerness to ride. A comfortable new seat with material and cushioning used in the YZF-R1, combined with new low-profile fuel tank covers with deep knee pockets for optimal hip and knee positioning gives the rider freedom to move while also providing a firmly planted feel when leaned over. Separate clip-on handlebars are set in relation to the rider’s hips and footpeg positions for an aggressive position allowing the rider to naturally grip the machine with confidence, especially when tucking behind the windscreen on twisty roads or on the racetrack.

60th Anniversary WGP YZF-R7

Yamaha is pleased to reveal three stunning models sporting an iconic colour scheme that celebrates 60 years of competition in World Grand Prix events.

The legendary red and white livery – complete with unique speed block pattern and yellow race plate motif – evokes the halcyon days of road racing when two-strokes ruled the roost. An era when Yamaha heroes like Ivy, Read, Agostini, Roberts and Rainey risked life and limb in their quest for glory.

The 60th anniversary is held in high regard in Japanese culture – higher even than the 50th milestone. So it’s no coincidence that this landmark has inspired eye-catching retro colour schemes with the striking YZF-R7 WGP Edition - that pay tribute to Yamaha’s passion for racing and winning at the highest levels of motorsport.
