Inside Motorcycles was on hand for the worldwide unveiling of Yamaha's new Dirt Track Concept bike, the DT-07, at the AIMExpo in Orlando, FL on Thursday, October 15. Powered by the liquid-cooled 689 cc parallel twin from the popular FZ-07 middleweight naked bike introduced in 2014, the wraps were literally pulled off the bike in front of a packed Media Hub at the 2015 AIMExpo.

While the model is currently just a concept, the popularity of flat track racing in North America combined with Yamaha's successful heritage in the sport means that, in our opinion, the DT-07 could very well be a production flat track bike available to the public; considering the FZ-07's base price of $7,299 MSRP, could a race-ready Open-class twin sell well enough for Yamaha to do a limited production run of the slick-looking DT-07?
