The following is an industry press release …

MARIETTA, Ga. – Expanding on last month’s introduction of the all-new entry-level MT-03 Hyper Naked motorcycle, Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA, today introduced the balance ofi its MT (Master of Torque) lineup for 2020.

The Dark Side of Japan

These same creative forces that drive the darker and unconventional side have inspired and shaped the unique MT motorcycles, giving every rider the chance to experience thrilling torque, outstanding agility and provocative design from the Dark Side of Japan.

MT-07 – Dark Attraction
