This may be against the grain, not sure. I am not a fan, at all. The MT-07 that this is based on is way down on power compared to the bike it (sort of) replaces. They cut the YZF-R6 due to emissions (Euro 5) and it is currently (MY2021) only available as a race version (no signals, etc.) and only in Europe. As a person that was considering an R6, I'm left without a good (competitive) track/track day bike option. An MT-07 dressed up as a sport bike is not a sport bike; not a YZF-R7. It is certainly going to be a fun bike, but not a competitive track day/race bike. This has also pushed up prices on the R6. Just my opinion, but the R6 is currently the best bike for a weekend racer, and it got the axe with the (possible) replacement as no replacement at all. ETA: if they don't bring back the R6, muy pronto, I'm probably going to head-explody.
