The new Yamaha MT-07 is claimed by TMC Blog to be powered by a new 655 cc mill with a 270-degree crank.

The present generation Yamaha MT-07 is powered by a 689 cc mill producing 74.8 PS and 68 Nm of torque. The report adds the powerplant manufactured in Indonesia will be the 655 cc version which has the same in-line twin layout with a 270-degree crank. It produces a reduced 52.75 PS of power and 57.5 Nm of torque.

The 2017 Yamaha MT-07 retailed globally tips the scales at 182 kg, and the LAMS 655 cc MT-07 weighs 179 kg. It gets ABS as standard and is the same features list as the global model. The European A2 version though uses the 689 cc mill and produces 47.58 PS of power.
