The dirt tracker is codenamed “DT-07” and it’s a one-off creation designed and built by Jeff Palhegyi Design in partnership with Yamaha’s US race shop.

The bike that was displayed in the US is a concept, but just imagine if Yamaha turned this into a production bike – how cool would that be!

The DT-07 features a special race-tuned FZ-07 twin-cylinder engine with an exhaust system created by Graves Motorsports.

The tracker was presented in the iconic Yamaha North America colours, and we think it looks pretty amazing!

It features a purpose-built frame, swingarm with an adjustable pivot and link system, modified R6 conventional-style forks, an Ohlins rear shock, wheels by Propulsion Labs, and of course, the FZ-07’s compact, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, twin-cylinder engine is the focal point of the machine.

“One of our specific goals with the DT-07 was to retain some of the FZ-07’s styling cues,” Derek Brooks, Motorcycle Product Planning Manager for Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., said. “I worked with Jeff Palhegyi on the design of the bike, and we literally used the FZ-07’s fuel tank cover as the basis for the body mold 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.”
