16 May 2021: Prior to debut, Yamaha YZF-R7 motorcycle previewed in leaked images

The Yamaha YZF-R7 middleweight supersport bike is set to be unveiled on May 18.

In the latest development, the two-wheeler's design and key highlights have been revealed in leaked images.

The pictures suggest it will have a centrally-mounted headlamp flanked by LED DRLs, split-style seats, a raised windshield, and an "R7" badge on fairings. It should run on a 689cc, parallel-twin engine.

Here's more.

Design: The bike will have a full-LED lighting setup

The Yamaha YZF-R7 will have a muscular fuel tank, fairing-integrated air vents, split-style seats, a clip-on style handlebar, a compact exhaust canister, and a clear windscreen.

The bike is expected to pack a digital instrument console, an all-LED setup for lighting, and will ride on designer alloy wheels.

It will be up for grabs in at least two shades: Racing Blue and Black.

Fact: It should run on a 73hp, 689cc engine

The Yamaha YZF-R7 will draw power from an MT-07-sourced 689cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine. On the latter, the mill generates a maximum power of 73.4hp at 8,750rpm and 67Nm of peak torque at 6,500rpm.

Safety: It will have a mono-shock unit on the rear

To ensure the safety of the riders, the Yamaha YZF-R7 will be equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with dual-channel ABS for better handling on the roads.

Suspension duties on the motorcycle will be taken care of by inverted forks on the front side and a mono-shock unit on the rear end.

Fact: Yamaha YZF-R7: Pricing and availability

The pricing and availability details of the Yamaha YZF-R7 will be revealed on May 18. If the bike makes its way to India, it should carry a price tag of around Rs. 8 lakh (ex-showroom).
