We MT "posers" were here while you were still dreaming of FZs. 👀 . I am reminded of the journalists who get into a hissy fit over the name of a bike ("TDM", "Intruder", "Rebel", to name but 3) and practically doom it to failure. It's just a name after all. 'MT' to eternity and beyond.... FZ'ers, you are still loved and valued.😍

whenever my FZ-07 sees a MT-07 it says "I AM YOUR FATHER!!!" 😈😛

How can one be so certain of fatherhood? 😁   But anyway, we might agree that the grandmother (or maybe grandfather) of all of our bikes is the MT-01 of 2005. It's just a shame she (or he) was unknown to those outside Europe and Oz.

That's what I was on about as regards journalists! TDM - "Ah, Tedium", they expleted = consequential failure in the market. But it was not deserved and it is a great bike. I had one. It's no wonder manufacturers control, even micro-manage, every possible aspect of official launches.  I'll go with the original Master of Torque.

You could say the bike known as FZ-07 has been deleted. Is no more. Finito. Sorry, guys 😯  But yes that might help their value.  Others may then be saying: 'Oh look, the new MT-07. A new bike. Looks great. It's a bit like the old FZ-07, isn't it?'. Some truth in that. 😊

No true but you can make fz'er out of it...

As far as I know the 07 was released in Europe as MTbefore the FZ got to US. It was engineered and designed ( not styled) in Europe as far as I know, by , I think, Yamaha Italy.

At least you guys didn;t get the "MT07" as a gutted version , Then the real version came out as a "MT07HO" ( another unfortunate naming mistake). Count your blessings.

 

I thought the FZ name was a mistake when they did it, as the designation refers to a slightly different market segment.

That was my thought.  In the Army the fuel guys marked empty fuel drums and such with a big "MT" - Mike Tango.  I was just a noobie private and had to ask what it meant, I didn't figure it out.  Then I thought they were screwing with me, but nope, it meant empty.

But, I don't care what it's called, I still love it.

But at least that's an accurate description considering the peanut we have for a tank. Going North along the hiway I can make the next town, then I have to fill. MT seems fitting.

Let keep in mind, the MT or Masters of Torque has been in Yamaha's line up for years..2005 was the first year of the MT-01, of course it never came to the states...pretty cool bike imho....image.thumb.png.ea374fd10b08c08a30bbc294d8d4e5e4.png

Well, technically the FZ series came first right?  The FZ1 dates back to 2001...

The first FZ came in 1984 in the form of the FZ400N and FZ400R. Then, in 1985, we had the FZ750 along with the FZ250 added to the family. These were followed by the FZ600 in 1986. So yes, the FZ came first. And although I very much prefer the MT moniker because it is much easier to pronounce in Norwegian, having given it some thought I think the FZ moniker suits the 03/07/09/10 better than MT based upon their heritage. The MT-01 and original MT-03 are in many ways quite different to the FZ-series, with slow-revving engines with good low and mid-range power. Not that the current models are lacking, but they are - like the original FZs - more tailored toward sports.

 

Still glad it will be MT, though ;)

I am an MT'er. Happy to be among FZ'ers.

It's a sonic cannon...Almost every 01 I knew had an aftermarket exhaust. I had forgotten what the original looked like.
