All new YZF-R7 revealed

The all-new 2022 YZF-R7 is the latest model in Yamaha's supersport segment. Built from the ground up with a sleek ultra-thin lightweight chassis powered by Yamaha’s proven CP2 engine, and enhanced with track-focused supersport features, the R7 embodies Yamaha's rich history of aggressive performance and racing dominance.

R World is calling
Yamaha has a rich heritage of building the most sought after supersport motorcycles designed to deliver the pinnacle of performance on and off the track. From the rider-friendly YZF-R3 to the exclusive and track-focused YZF-R1M, the Yamaha R-series model lineup provides options for riders of all skill levels to experience the pure exhilaration of R World. 

The all-new 2022 YZF-R7 bridges the gap between the entry-level YZF-R3 and the prestigious YZF-R1, offering a mid-level option for both new riders looking to grow into a more powerful motorcycle, as well as experienced riders seeking a fully-faired motorcycle with supersport performance that fits within their budget. With a unique package of performance, price and sporty styling, the R7 is true to its R-Series DNA and the lineup’s aspirational history of racing success.

The new model comes in two formats - a Learner Approved 655cc LA model with an engine tuned to maximise Australia's LAMs limit and a high output 689cc HO model.

The all-new 2022 YZF-R7 delivers proven power, a narrow chassis, and new styling that reflects the exhilarating next-generation of R World. It is packed with a range of features that include an engaging 689/655cc CP2 engine, a slim and lightweight frame with excellent aerodynamics, an inverted front fork with supreme front-end feel, and a racing-inspired cockpit with a supersport rider position.

Availability and pricing
The 2022 Yamaha YZF-R7 will be available from December 2021 with both models in Team Yamaha Blue or Performance Black colour schemes. The HO model is able to be fitted with an optional Quick Shift System (QSS) for seamless upshifts. Pricing for these new models will be $13,499 for the learner approved LA model and $14,499 for the high output HO model.
