Yamaha MT-07 & MT-09 Street Rally

The “Masters of Torque” range has increased with Yamaha unveiling the Street Rally version of the recently released MT-09 895cc triple and a new MT-07 689cc parallel twin.

The Street Rally is a cosmetic update with hand guards, a small beak, air filter covers, small side fairings, a flat and raised saddle and off-road-style footpegs.

The MT-07 pumps out 55kW of power and 68Nm of torque and features a steel monorail chassis with asymmetrical swingarm, conventional forks, Monocross rear and full digital instrumentation. It weighs in at only 179kg.

Meanwhile, Yamaha is following Piaggio into three-wheeler scooters. And like their MP3, Yamaha’s Tricity will lean into corners.

The scooter has a liquid-cooled 125cc four-stroke engine and CVT automatic transmission.

However, at just 150kg dry weight, it is lighter and more compact than other three-wheeler scooters on the market. Yamaha also points out that the Tricity’s underseat storage accommodates a full-face helmet.

Yamaha Australia communications manager Sean Goldhawk says they are trying to get all of the new models but nothing is confirmed yet.
