MT07 is $7699. Same engine minus fairings and adjustable forks.
CBR650R is $9699. 94HP Inline 4 and Traction control.

$8999 R7 is not so cheap for what it is.
72HP.

I'm not so sure its a bad a deal. The cost of an MT07, then swap out an R6 front end, add fairings... and it still does not add up to the R7, and for more money and time to build it.

Frame was initially based on the MT07, but the geometry was then revised, and strength was added in important places. That in itself makes it new and not an MT07 with fairings and forks. There is more that can be openly seen in the R7 package than many are giving Yamaha credit for. 👍

We're all excited to eventually get our hands on it to find out exactly what we've got here. hehe

Yamaha called me today. They wanted to thank me for my R7 order. It was more than that though... They called to make sure I didn't have any unknown detail I may be still wondering about in this process. It was a professional, and pleasurable call. They seem to love their work, as the man I was speaking with seemed to be just as enthusiastic about motorcycles as I am.

I can't recall a more pleasant interaction/experience with buying a vehicle than I've had in this instance. Nice work Yamaha.

EDIT: I stopped by the dealer today and they told me that the bike is shipping the first half of June, so I should take delivery at the end of June or the first week of July. They also told me that there were no other preorders coming to them, so I'll have the only one in my area for a while.

Glad to hear the call went so well. Small things like that make such a difference to me. That will be cool to have the first bike from your dealer.

Spoke to my dealer today to get a shipping update.

My R7 is currently in a warehouse(that is actually not too far from me) and is scheduled to ship June 16th. It is getting closer!

Got an update today. The dealer has been billed for the unit, and my Blue R7 is en route. Ok I'm starting to get excited.
