2022 Yamaha YZF-R7 Track Review

2022 Yamaha YZF-R7 Track Review

An ancillary video review of Yamaha’s parallel-twin powered YZF-R7.

Earlier this year, Yamaha announced it was retiring its beloved YZF-R6 four-cylinder sportbike. (Find out more in the 2021 Yamaha YZF-R6 Race First Look Preview article).

Replacing it on paper, but not in spirit is its more affordable and easy riding twin-cylinder powered YZF-R7 (learn more in the 2022 Yamaha YZF-R7 Preview writeup and video). After test riding it a couple times during the 2022 Yamaha YZF-R7 Review and 2022 Yamaha YZF-R7 MC Commute Review, we got our hands on one of our own motorcycles.

So we hauled it out to a Yamaha R World owner’s trackday operated by Z2 Track Days at Sonoma Raceway. Tune-in to watch what it’s like to ride around the circuit on OE-fitted Bridgestone Battlax S22 tires. Lastly, stay tuned for another review dedicated to the R7′s capability as an everyday street bike.
