2022 Yamaha Motorcycle Line First Look Preview

Yamaha has some exciting bikes on the way for the 2022 model year, including the new YZF-R7, the XSR900, a range of commemorative World GP 60th Anniversary models, and a heavily revised MT-10. It’s also bringing back plenty of familiar faces across its street lines. We’ll provide pricing, color options, and any notable details on the bikes slated for 2022 model year treatment below.

Still new to the game in the States, the Ténéré 700 carries through to 2022.

Ténéré 700: $10,299 (up $300 from 2021)

The Ténéré 700 was a highly anticipated model in the States when it finally dropped as a 2021 model. It is a capable and enjoyable midsize adventure machine that still has some legs from its initial debut, so for 2022 it only gets a color update with two options available: Team Yamaha Blue or Raven. It will land in dealerships this January.

The Super Ténéré ES is back for another round.

Super Ténéré ES: $16,299 (same as 2021)

The Super Ténéré ES carries forward unchanged for 2022, maintaining a stalwart tradition of consistency since it broke away from the standard Super Ténéré back in 2014. It remains the same price as last year and will be available in Matte Raven Black.

Tracer 9 GT: $14,999 (up $100 from 2021)

The Tracer 9 GT is still pretty fresh in the States, having made its debut as a 2021 model, so remains unchanged for 2022. During our assessment of the sport-touring machine, we found it to have great engine character, decent electronics, a nicely refined chassis, and a surprising amount of creature comforts. It gets a modest price bump, up $100 from last year, and will be available in either Liquid Metal or Redline colorways.

Pricing is up slightly but build is unchanged for the 2022 Yamaha FJR1300ES.

FJR1300ES: $18,199 (up $200 from 2021)

Yamaha’s current flagship sport-touring rig also returns in a Cobalt Blue scheme, pricing a little higher than last year at $18,199. It’s a little long in the tooth, with the last major revision coming in 2016. Maybe it’ll get some love next year.

The MT-09 got a lot of love in 2021 so holds steady for 2022.

Yamaha MT-09: $9,499 (up $100 from 2021)

Yamaha put a lot of work into its MT-09 for 2021, so it’s coasting through 2022 unchanged apart from a slight price bump. That extra hundred bucks doesn’t diminish the bang-for-buck quality of the MT-09, which is a fun, capable, sporty machine that left our reviewers impressed. Colors available for 2022 include Team Yamaha Blue, Cyan Storm, and Matte Raven Black.

The MT-07 carries over unchanged for 2022.

Yamaha MT-07: $7,899 (up $200 from 2021)

The MT-07 received a modest list of improvements last year, including new braking components and a reworked cockpit. Yamaha is leaving well enough alone for 2022 with the MT-07 carrying over as is. Price is up $200 from last year and colorways will include Team Yamaha Blue, Cyan Storm, and Matte Raven Black.

The MT-03 in Cyan Storm.

Yamaha MT-03: $4,799 (up $200 from 2021)

The MT-03 landed on our shores for 2020 to stake a claim in the growing small-displacement naked segment. It proved worthy of consideration in our initial review and remains the same as it was when we first met it. Price has gone up slightly and colorways will include Team Yamaha Blue, Cyan Storm, and Matte Stealth Black.

The MT-09 SP remains the same for another year.

Yamaha MT-09 SP: $11,099 (up $100 from 2021)

The special-edition MT-09 made its appearance for the 2021 model year and is back for another round. Suspension upgrades, aesthetic refinements, and some additional electrical goodies set this bike apart from its MT-09 sibling. For 2022 the bike will cost a bit more and come in a Liquid Metal/Raven colorway.
