The Yamaha MT-07 is arguably the bike of the year when it comes price vs. performance vs. grin factor.
The 689cc parallel twin puts out 75bhp, meaning until now the bike was out of reach for all but full A licence holders.
The good news is that Yamaha is now offering free 47bhp restrictor kits on all new MT-07s, meaning A2 licence holders can now join the fun.
At 179kg wet the bike is right on the limit of the 0.27hp/kg power to weight ratio imposed on A2 licence holders, but the important thing is that it’s on the right side of that limit.
Costing £5,199 without ABS or £5,499 with, the restricted MT-07 gets our vote as the best A2 ready motorcycle around.
