Documents filed with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) in the past hint that the upcoming bike could in fact be named YZF-R7 but confirmed details will only be revealed next week. The new R-series supersport is likely to fill in the gap left by the departure of the YZF-R6.

The leaked documents also hint towards the two different variants which could be announced. These trims may differ from each other in terms of equipment and features set.

While confirmed specification details are scarce at the moment, the new R7 is likely to use MT-07 platform. It could source power from a tuned 689 cc parallel-twin engine, unlike the YZF-R6's inline-four setup. The engine is likely to push out 72.4 bhp of maximum power at 8,750rpm and 67 Nm of peak torque at 6,500rpm. The transmission will be a six-speed setup.

As far as its India launch is concerned, there is no confirmation yet.
