2022 Yamaha R7

We’re taking bookings for training days for 2022 including an R7 hire bike for £499. See our booking page for details.

We tested the new Yamaha R7 at Blyton Park in November with Bennetts. A really nice bike to ride, works really well at Blyton. We played around with the adjustable front suspension, and found 12 clicks and 3 bands of preload really stiffened up the front end sharpening the handling for the track. I took my old 1999 R6 for comparison, which was an iconic bike in it’s day. Wonder if the R7 will be another classic Yamaha in time? The R7 is really all you need for a fun track bike, and I think despite its modest power, it will embarrass a few 1000cc riders with the right pilot on board on the twistier circuits.
