Europe's Yamaha MT-07 Released in Canada as 2015 FZ-07

Europe's popular MT-07 was announced today for release in Canada as the all new 2015 FZ-07. Will the naked bike make it South of the border? Bikeland spoke directly with Yamaha Motor Corporation today and was told that "Yamaha cannot discuss any possible future product models, but check back with us around June and September for exciting 2015 model information..."

Details from the Great White North follow...

Yamaha Motor Canada is pleased to introduce the newest member of the FZ family for 2015, the Yamaha FZ-07

The FZ-07 is a fun, naked sports bike powered by an all-new, liquid-cooled, 689cc, inline twin engine. It has been designed to provide deep, powerful torque in the most frequently used RPM range (3,000 to 6,500 rpm). On top of the all-new engine is the eye-catching, aggressive styling and outstanding value. Priced at $7,299, the all-new FZ-07 is following in the footsteps of the FZ-09 as a high quality motorcycle at an amazing price.
Yamaha Motor Canada Ltd. Motorcycle Product Manager, John Bayliss, said “The all-new 2015 FZ-07 is a special breed of motorcycle that brings fun, affordability and riding enjoyment back to the street. This versatile naked roadster offers deep engine torque, a comfortable up-right riding position and a lightweight, easy to handle sports chassis. The FZ-07 is the perfect machine for new and experienced riders who are looking to conquer road at an outstanding value.”

The Yamaha FZ-07 will be arriving in dealerships by the end of June 2014 and be available in Matte Metallic Gray, Bluish White and Vivid Red.

I hate to say it, but who would buy this thing? I can see it in Europe where they have cc and hp class liscences, and france where they neuter bikes above 100 hp. But here? or Canada for that matter? Why?

I can't see buying this when the Fz09 is only 800 more. Heck, my local dealer sells the fz9 for 7399 plus tax.

Maybe its marketed for women, and people who truly ride in the city or town environment. I truely mean no disrespect to our women riders. Its just that at that price, all your getting is a bike with less power, and crucially (I guess) less weight?

It is pretty light. I haven't checked the seat height, and ergo's for those people who may have shorter legs; but if its just as "tall" as a fz09 - forget it.

and what I said about the market for Europe, UK, etc. if you check the Mt07 pages; Yamaha offers ecu changes to make it fit their graduated motorcycle license criteria. And it can be changed as the rider progresses "up" in class to more power. I get that. For USA though? not so much.
