With their radical, uncompromising styling, muscular frames and thrilling, high-torque crossplane engine, Yamaha's Hyper Naked models have established themselves at the top of their respective categories.
Inspired by an alternative biker culture and shaped by the "Dark Side of Japan" philosophy, the MT model range has enjoyed enormous popularity on the European market for ten years. More than 420,000 Yamaha Hyper Naked motorcycles sold have created their own community.
With its impressive mix of super-agile handling, outstanding acceleration and uncompromising design, the MT model range covers the entire spectrum from 125 cc to 1,000 cc, so that every rider can choose the right model for him.
In 2023, the highly successful model range will be strengthened with even higher-quality versions of the MT-07 and MT-125. In addition, the all-time bestseller of the Hyper Naked category will continue to be offered in the form of the MT-07 Pure. The model range is completed by the MT-09 and MT-09 SP, which are also available as 35 kW variants, as well as by the top models MT-10 and MT-10 SP.
New TFT full-colour display with smartphone connectivity
After more than a decade at the top of the sales charts, the MT-07 hardly needs to be introduced. More than 160,000 units have been sold so far. This makes it one of the most successful Yamaha motorcycles of all time. Since the original model was launched in 2014, the MT-07 has been gradually developed according to the demands of the market. Thus, the remarkable mid-size motorcycle for 2023 receives a number of attractive innovations – while of course retaining the purist and undiluted design.
5" TFT full color display with dual display option
The most significant upgrade is the new 5-inch TFT full-colour display, which offers the choice between two different layouts. The street display has a modern design with overhead rev counter with bar display, underneath speed and the engaged gear are shown. The touring display is more traditional: on the right it shows an "analogue" rev counter and on the left a digital speed display.
Smartphone connectivity via MyRide app
Using the free Yamaha MyRide app, riders can establish a Bluetooth® connection from the smartphone to the Communication Control Unit of the latest MT-07 and then receive notifications of incoming calls, emails and messages on the TFT display.
If configured accordingly, the system also informs about the technical status of the MT-07. Upon request, an email will be sent to a Yamaha dealer or rider designated contact person.
The MyRide app also offers many other useful functions, such as monitoring all important parameters of the bike, recording of route, distance traveled, acceleration, maximum speed, lean angle and much more data. The information can be shared on social media and compared with other drivers.
Preparation for Quick Shift System
Yamaha's extensive range of original accessories includes numerous style, comfort and performance products to enhance and personalize the MT-07. To simplify the installation of the Quick Shift system, the MT-07 is already equipped with the necessary electronics. This allows the driver to quickly and easily enjoy thrilling acceleration and seamless gear changes.

It is popular with a wide range of buyers from drivers with an A1 driving licence to experienced veterans who want a lightweight, characterful motorcycle. In 2023, the MT-125 will receive a new 5-inch TFT full-color display with smartphone connectivity.
The system is similar to that of the new MT-07, whereby "Street" is displayed by default. Here, too, the smartphone is connected to the motorcycle via the Yamaha MyRide app – the display informs about notifications and the MyRide app shows, in addition to the functions for recording routes and information, the status of the vehicle.
