2007 Yamaha Midnight Warrior


  • Key Features:
    • The four-time AMA ProStar Hot Rod Cruiser Class Drag Racing Champion returns, with even more style.
    • Twin-bore fuel injection provides spot-on fuel delivery under all conditions.
    • Rigid, light and strong aluminum frame, inverted 41mm fork and an adjustable link-type rear end provide near-sportbike handling. 200/50-ZR17 rear radial tire looks right and puts all that torque efficiently to pavement.
    • Special Midnight Warrior rolls out in special black paint, black air cleaner, engine covers, exhaust.
  • Engine:
    • The industry standard for V-twin excellence features 102-cubic-inch (1670cc) displacement, pumping out asphalt-ripping torque and acceleration.
    • Air-cooled, long-stroke, OHV, 48 degree cylinders with pushrod valve actuation keeps engine height down; large cooling fins, ceramic composite bore plating and a one-piece head cover provide more efficient heat dissipation.
    • Four-valve cylinder head design uses two spark plugs per cylinder for efficient combustion and more power at all RPM.
    • Hydraulic valve lifters driven by twin camshafts deliver exceptional performance and lower maintenance needs.
    • Forged pistons accommodate higher-RPM performance thanks to reduced reciprocating mass.
    • Rare earth flywheel magnet for faster-revving power delivery and increased high-RPM durability.
    • Twin-bore fuel injection with throttle position sensor (TPS), aspirated by free-breathing twin air cleaner system, ensures optimal fuel delivery, great throttle response and maximum power throughout the rev range.
    • State-of-the-art electronic control unit (ECU) ensures precisely metered fuel delivery and optimal ignition spark control using 3-D digital CD ignition mapping for each cylinder.
    • High-performance 2-into-1 exhaust system features stainless steel headers and a massive muffler that boosts horsepower while putting out a throaty V-twin growl.
    • Dry sump lubrication system uses a handy spin-on filter.
    • Smooth-shifting five-speed transmission features close-ratio gearing for excellent roll-on performance at all RPM.
    • Smooth, low-maintenance belt drive system has a narrow-design belt that reduces unsprung weight for improved rear suspension performance.
    • Electric starting system features solenoid-activated auto-decompressor for easy starting.
  • Chassis/Suspension:
    • Specially designed, class-exclusive, aluminum double-cradle frame and swingarm increases rigidity by 41% (over standard Road Star frame), for tremendous strength and durability.
    • Super-rigid 41mm Kayaba inverted telescopic fork in beefy, cast-aluminum triple clamps gives 5.3 inches of travel for exceptional sport-oriented performance.
    • Link-type, preload and rebound adjustable single rear shock delivers outstanding rear-wheel tracking for precise handling and plush ride quality.
    • Dual 298mm front disc brakes and radial-mount four-piston calipers, and a 282mm rear disc combine for incredible, supersport-spec stopping power.
    • Pulley design gets all that power to the back wheel with even more style.
    • Lightweight, cast-aluminum five-spoke wheels wear low-profile, competition-spec 120/70-ZR18 front and a massive 200/50-ZR17 rear radial for awesome traction and cornering grip.
    • Extra-long, 65.6-inch wheelbase and deep, plush saddle create added rider comfort and well-balanced handling.
  • Additional Features:
    • Industry-leading Star Family fit and finish features lustrous paint and chrome accents (air cleaner, air scoop, mirrors and more) to create a machine as stunning as it is powerful.
    • Two-piece saddle is wide and flat for excellent comfort.
    • Digital headlight-mounted tachometer, odometer and dual tripmeters with triple clamp-mounted analog speedometer.
    • LED taillight provides excellent visibility and very sano look.
