‘The MT-07’S en­gine makes it a re­ally spe­cial mo­tor­cy­cle’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

On a dry day both the Suzuki SV650 and Kawasaki Z650 will prob­a­bly be the faster bikes through the B-road bends thanks to their bet­ter sus­pen­sion, but there is some­thing about the MT- 07’s en­gine that makes it a re­ally spe­cial bike and one that punches far above what its bud­get mid­dleweight tag would oth­er­wise sug­gest.

It is a bit softly sprung, but it is also a phys­i­cally big­ger bike than its ri­vals, mak­ing it a more com­fort­able propo­si­tion. It’s such a close call, but for my money the MT-07 has just enough left in its locker to see off the Z650 and SV650. But only just.
