The MT-07 recently announced is the lightweight, powerful 689 cc parallel-twin little brother to the U.S. market Yamaha FZ-09. The FZ-09 is not only an entertaining mount, with loads of performance, it is priced very aggressively at $7,990.
We were curious to see how Yamaha would price the MT-07 in Europe, and now we know. Yamaha UK has given it a price of 5,200 British pounds. This is roughly 15% less than the British version of the Kawasaki Ninja 650. Since the Ninja 650 retails for $7,699, it is not unreasonable to expect the U.S. version of the MT-07 (FZ-07?) to be priced in the neighborhood of $6,500. We expect the MT-07 to be brought to the U.S. market, but we do not know when at this point.
