Two naked twins for AUS market – High Output and LAMs MT-07 models shake up category

2015 MT-07LA

YMA is pleased to introduce two new versions of MT-07 for the Australian market.

The first model is a variant of the existing LAMs model 655cc parallel twin that is purpose built in Japan to suit AUS learner market requirements. Except now thanks to customer feedback all four colours of the 655cc model come with ABS braking as standard.

The new LAMs MT-07LA is offered in four colours. Three colours are the same as existing model MT-07 which is Competition White, Matt Grey and Deep Armour. But the Lava Red model is now replaced with a hot new Extreme Yellow. The LAMs approved MT-07 retails for $9599 RRP inc GST.

The second model is a full power ‘High Output’ model 689cc version of the 270 degree parallel twin. This model is available in Race Blu only and is priced $9999 RRP inc GST. This MT-07HO model is not learner approved and is not available with ABS braking.

Both models share the same chassis and running gear as the current highly desirable MT-07 that has been so popular with press and customers alike.
