Though it’s only existed for half-a-decade, the Yamaha MT-07 — previously known as the FZ-07 in the North American market —has become one of the Tuning Fork Company’s most popular models. The MT-07 boasts a liquid-cooled, 689cc, DOHC, parallel-twin that puts down 74hp and 50ft-lbs of torque, all while tipping the scales at 400lbs wet weight and costing less than $8K. The appearance of the “hyper naked” however leaves a lot more to be desired. So, Australia’s Andrew Stagg set out to remedy the MT’s visual shortcomings via an absolutely stunning supermoto-style build dubbed the “SMT-07.”

The Japanese twin’s steel trellis frame has been treated to a new aluminum subframe that now houses the bespoke bike’s fuel-cell. Resting atop the new framework is a custom, hand-formed aluminum tail section and number panel combo with the tank cap sitting flush in the new bodywork just behind the MX-style saddle. Moving forward, Stagg fashioned a faux tank and radiator shroud combo that, like the tail, is of the handmade aluminum variety; The same goes for its front number plate and fender combo that houses a set of sunken stacked Highsider headlights. Finishing touches on this stellar sumo includes K&N pods, Rizoma bars, Gilles Tooling levers, Motogadget indicators, polished headers winding into a carbon fiber Blackwidow can, a custom mono-shock, and the Hamamatsu marque’s classic speed block livery. Best of all, the SMT-07 is currently for sale. Interested parties can contact Australia’s Black Cycles for more info.
