Codenamed the “DT-07,” this Yamaha is a one-off creation designed and built by Jeff Palhegyi Design in conjunction with Yamaha’s U.S. race shop. The DT-07 features a special race-tuned FZ-07 twin-cylinder engine with a Graves Motorsports exhaust. Flip through the photos for more details on this Flat Track inspired FZ.
The FZ-07 is a great bike and also a great platform for customization
With its one-piece bodywork resplendent in 60th-Anniversary race livery, the DT-07 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.
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
