Yamaha DT-07 Concept revealed

Yamaha USA revealed its latest creation, the DT-07 flat tracker concept at the AIM Expo motorcycle show in Orlando, Florida last week.

Using a race-tuned version of the 689cc, parallel-twin engine that is powering the MT-07, the DT-07 is apparently a one-off concept that was built by Jeff Palhegyi Design and Yamaha USA’s race department.


Sporting Yamaha’s 60th anniversary celebration Speedblock paint scheme,  the DT-07 also comes with a straight-through exhaust system from Graves Racing.

Other notable highlights on the concept include the purpose-built frame, the swingarm with an adjustable pivot and link system, modified R6 conventional-style forks, Ohlins rear shock, as well as Propulsion Labs wheels.


Derek Brooks, Motorcycle Product Planning Manager for Yamaha USA said: “One of our specific goals with the Yamaha DT-07 was to retain some of the FZ-07’s styling cues. I worked with Jeff Palhegvi on the design of the bike and we literally used the FZ-07’s fuel tank cover as the basis for the body mould on the DT-07 Concept. The entire bike was essentially built from scratch, and it is Yamaha’s interpretation of what a dirt tracker designed from the ground up in 2015 should look like.” aims to bring you the latest motorcycle news reviews videos and entertainment for everything related to motorcycles from around the world.
