The Yamaha YZF-R7 Looks Pretty Spicy in GYTR Trim

The Yamaha YZF-R7 is Yamaha’s answer to Twins Cup racing, refined over the MT-07 it replaces to have a stiffer chassis, better suspension, and some minor engine tweaks.

The real beauty of the R7 though is that it takes much of the work and expense in racing an MT-07 out of the equation, especially with its $9,000 price tag.

Hoping now to make the race-prep situation even simpler, Yamaha has released a bevy of “Genuine Yamaha Technology Racing” (GYTR) products for the twin-cylinder machine.

The kit is full of what you would expect: an Öhlins rear shock, Öhlins front fork cartridges, an Akrapovic exhaust, GYTR clip-ons and other hard parts…just to name a few.

The full race bodywork is very interesting, especially with its headlight-delete, which also closes the front intake opening.

Done-up in the full kit, the Yamaha YZF-R7 GYTR looks mighty fine, and only makes wish that the piano brand would release full-kit race bikes, straight from the factory, just like Aprilia Racing.
