Yeah pretty much what I'd have expected given the different engines. I was always a Yam guy until I got my STR, but of the MTs I've only got experience of the MT01 which is an odd beast in a class of 1. I call it the Yamaharley due to the 1700 V twin, but it doesn't fit the cruiser mould. The rigid mounted engine and comedy proportions basically make it a cross between a Lego motorbike and a sex toy on wheels. I think the 07 and 09 are a lot more practical.

The only V8 I'm likely to own comes in one litre tetrapaks and tastes like celery.

The MT09 is a much closer rival to the Street to be honest (I still think the Street is better - not that I'm biased LOL) but still falls a little bit short on performance and handling.
Saying that a mate of mine bought the MT09 over a Street Triple 765 - but only because he got a better finance deal on it  :008: :008:. He loves it anyway.

Nice! Interesting that you have a street and an MT07. They're often considered direct rivals and deemed to be pretty similar in terms of what kind of riding they're for. Hopefully you prefer the Street Triple! Or do you find the MT better for, say,  commuting, and the Street for fun?

Thanks. The two are not really similar at all except for displacement but do compliment each other. The 2018 MT-07 is more upright, more of a commuter, UJM and while a very much fun motorcycle is simply not in the same class as the Street Triple. The 675R is more like a super sport, more aggressive, much quicker and sharper handling.

I plan to use the MT-07 for sporting about, to and from the office and setting it up also for a light, fast day and weekend tourer. I will say the MT-07 might be the better naughty hooligan as it will wheelie on demand in first and second and all the Street does is lay it's ears back and turn the world to a blur. Sure it too will wheelie but unless I thwack the throttle full on the Street wants a little clutch to lift the front wheel.

Good weather here in Banbury, dry roads with the sun breaking through here and there, so took the bike out for a spin.

MT-07's wheelie good when the top box is stacked with Pizza. If you want to wheelie your Street, maybe just change the sprocket/s... :028:
