So i picked up my new MT-07 about 3 weeks ago and have ridden it pretty much daily since. I havent seen much posted about the Australian version of this bike so thought id open a thread and do a small review from my first few weeks of ownership. My thoughts arent based on much riding experience, my previous bike has been a suzuki drz400, the MT is the first road bike ive ridden for a decent amount of time so i dont really have much to compare it to but i can give an honest opinion on what ive noticed so far with riding the bike. Overall the bike is fantastic, for the price i think its excellent value especially when compared to others its up against like the Kawasaki ER6 and the Lams Triumph Street triple, two bikes i was initially interested in. Its quick, it has plenty of power for a lams bike and i honestly think it will be more then enough for me once im on my full licence in a few months aswell. The power comes low in the revs which makes it very easy to ride around town, you dont have to rev it like crazy to get it to go somewhere and you dont have to constantly be changing gears. It has loads of torque and you can easily be cruising in 4th or 5th and give it some to overtake easily. The ride is pretty comfortable. Im 6 foot and about 85kgs and i find the seating positon good. Ive done a few longer rides (3-4 hours) and havent been overly tired or sore after. Its obviously not a big cruiser and if i was buying a bike to commute long distances up a freeway daily i'd probably be going for something else, but i'd think thats pretty obvious. It has a very upright seating position compared to a sportsbike which for me is good. others might not like that so much. It handles well and has heaps of grip. The brakes are pretty strong, ive hit them hard a few times out of curiosity and the bike pulls up nicely. The build quality is also good, not excellent but for me that was to be expected considering its a 9k bike. I have a few squeaks and rattles that ill be hoping to get fixed at the first service. Nothing major or really even that noticable. The paint finish is really nice, i got the matt grey and i think it looks great. Ill be interested to see how it holds up over time. The exhaust is super quiet, when cruising i cant really even hear the bike over the road and wind noise, for some that could be a really good thing but personally id like it a little louder, for safety and also because im a bit of a dick and like loud things. Ive ordered the akropovic exhaust which from reviews is supposed to make the bike sound a lot better but not stupidly loud either. Not sure what else there is really. if you read this far you must be semi-interested in the bike already so feel free to ask questions. Heres some pictures of mine. Thanks!
