MCN says this week that the UK price will be under £5,000. Now, that would drag me to the dealer to join the scrum (surely there'd be one?).

Don't forget we're talking pounds and not dollars. At today's exchange rate, that equates to about $8,100 US dollars. I suppose it's all relative to where you live, but I doubt a North American version would be in the $5,000 dollar range. I would guess around $7,000-$7,500.

The 09 is euros and dollars 7,990 (sterling 6,799). Per EICMA, the 07 is to be "under" Euros 6,000....

Maybe if enough people keep demanding it in the forums, Yamaha might think about bringing it in.

So that's $7,027 U.S. Not bad. $963 cheaper than the 09. Plus the reduction in insurance cost from the 847cc to 689cc. Now they just need to bring it to America.
I don't know guys. Every exchange calculator I use says 5000 pounds equals $8,073.50 as of today. 5000 Euros comes out to $6,757.50 as of today. I guess to get a better idea I should see what they are charging for the MT-09 vs. the FZ-09.

Yamaha UK list the MT-09 as starting at 6,799 pounds. That's 10,978.35 in U.S. dollars. I guess we don't have it so bad over here.

As stated above, 5,200 Euro = $7,027 U.S. You may have figured 5,000 Euro.

Maybe I'm confused by the symbol? Isn't that "L" with the curled top and the cross through it the symbol for British pounds? No wonder I get confused when traveling in Europe.

€ Symbol for Euros

£ Symbol for British Pounds

I'm afraid none it may matter. No sign yet that the MT-07 is coming to North America. Here's hoping.

I hesitate because I may cause more confusion! But firstly, UK prices have a 20% (!) addition for tax ('VAT'). I know it's only theory until the bike reaches you, but I thought a better attempt at a $ price might be to compare with the MT-09. That sells at both Dollars and Euros 7,990. So, on the basis of the EICMA statement that the Euro price for the MT-07 would be under Euros 6,000, so the Dollar price ought to be under 6,000 also ($5,990?). The UK price more or less confirms EICMA. Yamaha may have other ideas, of course (well they do, as of now).

for $6000, sign me up for one! don't necessarily need all the power of the fz-09 as long as the twin has it down low where it counts in the city.

For those in the UK, Yamaha has pulled their listed price for the 07. I thought it unusual to quote an OTR price. They have revamped their website for the 07 , but no price.

I agree, I don't need all the power and added cost of the 09, if they can bring a 700cc bike with good power at a great price they will have a second hit on their hands here in the usa.
