2022 Yamaha YZF R7 Top Speed, Price, Specs, Weight, Height & Review

Walk into every bike dealer, old or new, and ask which is the best brand to buy. Without hesitation, “Yamaha!” is what you will hear.  But each Yamaha bike has unique features based on its price and purpose. So is R7! Firstly, Yamaha YZF R7’s top speed is 139 mph.

Compared to the R6, R7 is faster and more powerful. It makes double torque at a range of 3000 to 4000 rpm. Sadly, if you are a beginner, R7 is not your ideal bike; it is best for experts since it is a superbike initially meant for the Superbike World Championship plus the Suzuka 8 race participants.

So, if you have been looking for a bike that would prepare you for the next bike ride race, consider the R7 by Yamaha. There is more than the speed that makes R7 a great deal!

Yamaha YZF R7 Review

  • The Yamaha YZF-R7 hit a 139 mph top speed (223)
  • The Yamaha YZF-R7 weight is: 414 lb (188Kg)
  • The Yamaha YZF-R7 seat height: is 32,9 (84 cm)

Weight and Height

The bike’s wheelbase is only 55 inches, while its dimensions are:  Width, 28 inches, and length 81 inches.

Therefore, R7 is suitable for the average person as it features a wet weight of 414 pounds. On the other hand, the seat height is 32.9 inches. Therefore, this is an excellent buy for short dudes.

Also, riders never struggle to reach the ground when stopping their rides since the bike is narrow on the front side, making R7 a comfortable bike.


With a six-speed gearbox, you cannot expect less from this Yamaha model, which features a DOHC inline cylinder (twin) engine. Besides, the engine features a 4-stroke and is 689cc liquid-cooled.

It is a super-powerful bike with unbeatable performance on all roads and corners.

If you like, add this to the most economical motorbikes, as its fuel consumption is 58 mp/g. Judge for yourself; isn’t that good enough?


Yamaha R7 has proven to be faster than most other models, such as the Kawasaki Ninja 650. However, at high speed, your bike might start creeping ahead, which may not be an excellent feature for racing enthusiasts.

Top Speed: 139 mph

Not only does this bike come highly recommended due to its high speed, but the Quick Shift System (QSS) it features is also a great feature. With the QSS, an optional add-on feature, R7 fits in the category of bikes characterized by a smooth and quick upshift.


Unlike the expectations of many sportbike riders, R7 is an excellent option for riding for a continued time. This bike with 74 horsepower will not leave you with neck and butt aches after riding for continued sessions.

Your legs and back will equally thank you on arrival home. In other words, the manufacturer had sport riders in mind and gave it a sportbike-like design to help combat posture problems.

Even so, avoiding this bike if you are tall and overweight is best, as it might keep you uncomfortable throughout your ride.

Parting Line

This model is rare! Only 50 bikes found their way into North America from the manufactured 500 Yamaha R7 top-speed (139 mph) bikes. That has nothing to do with its quality and performance; it is still an exceptional bike when it begins racing.

Due to its minimal vibrations during rides, you don’t have to be picky on what roads to ride, but you will enjoy an outstanding performance with great acceleration due to the 270 degrees crankshaft feature.

The most outstanding feature of this bike is not even the speed but the linear torque that features smooth and exceptional acceleration.

So, what is holding you back? Challenge yourself and make the order before it is too late!
