MT-09

yamaha-mt-09

MT-09 is built to appeal to your motorcycling instincts - a high torque triple that’s a real thrill ride. At its beating heart a lightweight 847cc 3-cylinder engine kicks out a wide band of raw, linear torque guaranteed to boost adrenalin.

And now MT-09 is more striking than ever with an intimidating LED twin-eye face. The front winglets and radiator side fins give an ultra-sharp look and to reinforce the bike’s uncompromising style we’ve designed a shorter tail. With its radical looks, refined bodywork and higher specification, this unstoppable force is ready to take your Street Cred riding experience to the next level.

Yamaha D-MODE

Yamaha D-MODE


To give the MT-09 rider the bike - and the excitement - he or she needs in different riding situations, this new motorcycle is equipped with the Yamaha D-MODE system. The rider has a choice of three different throttle valve control mapping settings, STD Mode, A Mode and B Mode.

Compact and Lightweight Liquid-Cooled CP3 Engine

Compact and Lightweight Liquid-Cooled CP3 Engine


The MT-09's all-new 3-cylinder engine has been developed to embody the essence of Yamaha's 'crossplane philosophy' which is designed to ensure instant throttle response together with strong low to mid-range torque.

Quick Shift System

Quick Shift System


This new mechanism is the same as the design featured on the multi award-winning YZF-R1, and features a sensor on the shift rod that momentarily cancels drive torque when an upshift is detected, giving more efficient and exciting acceleration through the gears.

Assist & Slipper Clutch

Assist & Slipper Clutch


By minimising the unsettling effects caused by high levels of back torque and excessive engine braking, this new A and S clutch gives improved control and gentler handling characteristics when downshifting aggressively.

Aggressively Styled Twin-Eye LED Headlights

Aggressively Styled Twin-Eye LED Headlights


Influenced by the uncompromising image of the flagship MT-10, the radically styled face of the MT-09 features an aggressive new LED twin-eye headlight design that underlines this bike's forceful image as well as its compact and lightweight feel.

Lightweight and Compact CF Aluminium Die-Cast Frame

Lightweight and Compact CF Aluminium Die-Cast Frame


In order to enable the rider to optimise the performance characteristics of the new high-torque 3-cylinder engine, the MT-09 runs with an all-new compact and lightweight aluminium chassis. The space-saving and weight-reducing features employed on the new engine have given our designers great freedom in the design of the frame.

Concealed 3-into-1 Exhaust

Concealed 3-into-1 Exhaust


The MT-09 is fitted with an integrated single-piece 3-into-1 exhaust system and short muffler featuring three internal expansion chambers. The stubby muffler emits a pleasing sound that highlights the bike's unique character, and its concealed under-slung location contributes towards the centralisation of mass, which in turn helps to ensure light and responsive handling performance.

Ultra-Compact Tail-End

Ultra-Compact Tail-End


The new ultra-compact tail end design reinforces the MT-09's athletic Street Cred stance and enhances the bike's aggressive good looks.The upwardly slanted sub-frame is shortened by 30mm, and to convey a feeling of lightness and agility, the shorter up-swept tail cowl features new side grills.

Swingarm-Mounted Rear Fender

Swingarm-Mounted Rear Fender


To complement its shorter tail, the MT-09 is equipped with an all-new swingarm-mounted rear fender and registration plate holder featuring a single-sided lightweight forged aluminium stay.

Traction Control System

Traction Control System


For reduced rear tyre slippage and higher levels of controllability, the MT-09 is equipped with a Traction Control System featuring two different modes as well as an off switch. Mode 1 gives minimum intervention and mode 2 offers maximum intervention, allowing you to adjust or turn off the TCS to suit different conditions and riding styles.
