Yamaha’s first collaboration with famous tuner Shinya Kimura gave birth to the astonishing "Faster Sound", which testifies to the philosophy of the Japanese preparers.
For the project "Faster Sound", Shinya worked with the latest parallel twin engine that powers the modern Yamaha MT-07 lineup, finding inspiration in powerful energy, rich in torque.. "I thought whoever built this engine must really like motorcycles", he comments.
"When I created the "Faster Sound", I wanted to give free rein to my desires without compromising the important functions of steering, stopping, accelerating and negotiating bends", underlines Shinya. "The engine is the result of new technologies from Yamaha; it doesn’t look like retro engines with nice cooling fins, but the overall design of the bike doesn’t hide the new design facets or the nostalgic side; he makes the symbiosis."
"The reservations I feared at first turned out to be unfounded, as it was a timeless design, but one that incorporated the best features. Whether you use a retro engine or a modern engine, the two have one thing in common: a functional aspect that is given form. I think I have succeeded in creating a motorcycle that combines history, retro styling and modern technologies, which promises a great driving experience.."
