I am curious about the revised suspension on the 2018 MT-07.  I need to see one in person to look at the new bodywork.

its already up at the yamaha us website

All new plastics, seats and everything, but it seem subtle in its changes.  I guess the 4 eye headlight was a red herring or limited only to the T7.  Not a fan of the first gen FZ09 inspired headlights.  Step backwards to me.

 

Edit:  Yup... sure enough, they are all called MT now... what's going to happen with the forum names now?

This is great, why did Yamaha dick around with us for 5 or so years?

 

Hey, is that an mt07?  Yes, its fz07.. er, I mean, yes mt07.  Fz07?  What's that?  It was called fz07, even though it is an mt07 then they renamed it mt07 but you can see under the seat it says fz07, but yes its an mt07.

 

Good going yamaha.

So "sportier front suspension". Something we could swap in?

They shied away from the 09-type headlights and went safe. Sensible. The underseat cover plate thingy has gone black. It all looks very good to me.

The changes are interesting. They actually got rid of the big orange turn signals that everyone loves so much. 😁

If you look closely the photos say "European model shown".  I hope that does not mean we will get the pumpkins, but I bet we do.  As long as they do not put that silly transformers logo on it I will be happy.

If you can go by the photos on the Yamaha Canada site, we're getting the pumpkins.

The only remotely interesting thing is the suspension.

I'm not sure if the emblem on the tank is going to look decent in person or just weird.

definitely some neat improvements but I still like my '15 model a little more. :D

I like the headlight... I was trying to get an old FZ-09 headlight and swap it out, which this is very similar to.
