Yamaha MT-07 to get an MT-10 face transplant

Recommended Posts

magdfarid

Hello everyone.

 

I just came across this article by MCN! Yamaha MT07/FZ07 is getting a new headlight soon!

MT07MT10FACECOVER.thumb.jpg.a09a046b1ce725fe9efbcbf911ba0c63.jpg

Here's a link to the full article.

 

I wonder what the final result would look like 😮

Here it is. I personally hate it. I didnt actually like the current light because i thought it was a bit on the boring side but its grown on me. The new one just looks hideous to me

ehhhh...its not the original headlight style, they coulda kept the same singular headlight but made it so half lights up for low beam and keep the other half dimly lit till high beams are needed...

It wouldn't prevent me from buying the bike, but it is not an improvement in the looks dept.

 

I hope these lights actually work better.

Not because I feel the current light is poor, but to claim some kind of advantage while putting-up with the decreased looks.

I personally don't like all the neon yellow crap. Yellow wheels make me wanna puke.

The model shown looks like the Motocage version of the MT 07. It had dealer-added bits like a stunt bike. I cannot see it listed now in UK.  I think we will not have long to wait to discover if that really is the new face: EICMA in October is still my guess.

I think it might just be a dressed up one for photo purposes but I've seen other pics with the same lights. I hope I'm wrong

Fugly or not.... if it works better than the poorly focused dim candle  of a stock headlight, I'm all for it.

the best improvement yamaha could make is a bigger tank 17ltrs instead of 14.

also what is the benefit on having plastic covers over a tank apart from changing coloured plastic panels. 

shirley that would add another ltr or more if they made a tank like the fazer all metal.

also adding grab rails.

as for the lights don't like them but if we all like the same it would be a boring world  would it not.

Damn I kinda like the bumblebee look -- I wonder if we will be able to easily retrofit existing older bikes with it.

Couldn't agree more on the tank size. 17ltrs would make 500km to a tank a piece of cake

That pic is just a photoshop of an edited MT10 light slapped onto the MT07.

Im looking into making an "old headlight" kit and sell it on here. I'm not joking. I'll keep it affordable. 

 

Stay tuned...

I think you're right there. But I've also found this, which in my opinion looks worse.

When I was doing my dual headlight I was thinking of getting a pair and stacking them like this. Now that I see this pic I'm glad I didn't...
