Yamaha Announce 2023 Upgrades to MT-125 & MT-07

POSTED: 25/10/2022



With their brutal no-compromise styling, muscular chassis designs and thrilling torque-rich crossplane engine technology, it’s no surprise that Yamaha’s Hyper Naked models have established themselves as the best-selling models in their respective categories.

Inspired by the alternative biking culture characterized by the Dark Side of Japan philosophy, the MT range has achieved 10 years of continued success in the European market. With over 420.000 sold, these Yamaha Hyper Nakeds have created their very own subculture of MT riders who have been inspired by their raw appeal and the ability to deliver stunning real-world performance.

Delivering an impressive mix of super agile handling, outstanding acceleration and uncompromising attitude, the MT lineup covers the whole segment from 125cc through to 1000cc, offering a seamless step-up for every rider of any age.

For 2023 this outstandingly successful range is reinforced with higher specification versions of the MT-07 and MT-125. The full lineup is completed with the iconic MT-09 & MT-09 SP and the remarkable MT-10 & MT-10 SP – the most powerful Yamaha Hyper Naked. 

2023 MT-07:

Suffice to say that the original concept of a torque-rich engine combined with a compact and agile chassis finished o with muscular bodywork has remained fundamentally the same –  showing that Yamaha’s designers got it right the first time.

MT-07’s core values are much appreciated by Europe’s riders and with sales of over 160.000, this machine is one of the most successful Yamaha motorcycles of all time. Since the original model was introduced in 2014 it has evolved gradually to match the requirements of the market, but Yamaha has always been careful to ensure that the pure and undiluted design of this remarkable middleweight retains its essential character.

The 2023 MT-07 features a range of upgrades that enhance the package while remaining true to the basic concept that’s loved by so many riders. The most significant upgrade is the new 5-inch full-colour TFT display that provides a choice of two different screen themes. The Street Theme is a more modern-looking layout with a bar-type tachometer at the top and digital speedo and gear selection readouts – while the Touring Theme has a more conventional circular analogue-style tachometer on the right of the screen and digital speedometer on the left.

Smartphone connectivity with MyRide app

By downloading Yamaha’s free MyRide app to their smartphone, riders can connect with the communication control unit on the latest MT-07 via Bluetooth® and view incoming calls, emails and message notifications on the new TFT meter.

If set up accordingly, the system can also notify the rider of any technical issue that may be detected on the MT-07 and can transmit a notification via email to a motorcycle dealer or any other contact that has been designated by the rider.

MyRide app also offers many other useful functions including monitoring all key parameters of the bike, tracking the route taken, as well as recording the distance covered, acceleration, top speed, lean angle and much more. Data can be shared on social media, compared and discussed with other Yamaha Hyper Naked riders on some of the many internet forums and social media groups

Other New Changes

Yamaha’s comprehensive Genuine Accessories line includes numerous stylistic, comfort and performance products that the MT-07 rider can select to upgrade and personalize their machine. To facilitate the fitment of a quickshifter, the latest MT-07 is prewired with the necessary electronics, making it quick and easy to benet from the thrilling acceleration and seamless gear changes offered by this new Yamaha Genuine Accessory. 

Other detail changes for 2023 include a painted ABS front fender as well as revised right-side handlebar switches to accommodate the new TFT meter.

New 5-inch connected full-colour TFT meter

With its forceful good looks, great value and Yamaha Hyper Naked family DNA, the MT-125 is one of the best-selling models in its class. Popular with a wide range of customers from A1 license holders through to more experienced riders looking for a characterful lightweight, the MT-125 is upgraded for 2023 with a new 5-inch full-colour TFT screen that gives smartphone connectivity.

The system is identical to the new design featured on the MT-07, however, only one display theme is available – Street Theme. After Yamaha’s MyRide app is downloaded to the rider’s smartphone and linked to the MT-125’s communication control unit, riders can view incoming calls, emails and message notifications on the full-colour screen.

If set up accordingly, the system can also notify the rider of any technical issue that may be detected on the MT-125 and can transmit a notification via email to a motorcycle dealer or any other contact that has been designated by the rider.

As well as enabling smartphone connectivity, Yamaha’s free MyRide app also adds another dimension to every ride by recording a range of data on every journey. It enables the rider to review routes taken as well as look at other information regarding the bike’s performance. It’s a great way to learn more about the way they use the bike and remember favourite roads and places they visit – and it’s great for sharing and comparing with like-minded MT riders on social media.
