Features Gallery
  • alt

    Dedicated SP colours

    The SP’s dedicated colours link it directly to the R1M’s exclusive Icon Performance finish, while the levers, handlebars, drive sprocket, front fork and more receiving a DLC coating in black. Also, the swingarm gets an anodized brushed aluminium finish to elevate both the look and feel of quality and the model’s premium look and feel.

    Cruise Control system

    The SP’s best-in-class electronic rider aids include Cruise Control, allowing you to relax when cruising on the highway. Can be set when riding at least 50 km/h and in 4th gear or higher. Cancelling the cruise control is done by using the brakes, clutch or the throttle – and the “Resume” function reengages the system and returns the bike to its previous set speed.

    Premium fully adjustable suspension

    The fully adjustable KYB front forks feature separate high and low speed compression damping that allows you to choose more detailed settings – and the 41mm tubes are given a DLC coating for excellent sliding characteristics and a high quality appearance. The rear features an Öhlins shock absorber to give the MT-09 SP a class-leading suspension package.

    Double-stitched seat

    Stylish contrasting stitching enhances the bike’s quality looks and feel, and gives you an instant feeling of fit once seated. The shapes of parts like the fuel tank and seat have been refined through repeated Kanno Hyoka (evaluating motorcycle performance based on test rider perceptions and feedback) to give you a feeling of being at one with the machine.

    Brushed and polished aluminium swingarm

    The swingarm gets brushed and polished aluminium finish to elevate both the look and feel of quality. Together with the Crystal Graphite finish on the frame it brings out the pure mechanical beauty of the MT-09 SP’s compact aluminium chassis to create an intense pride of ownership.

    6-Axis IMU plus lean-sensitive rider aids

    Developed from the R1, the compact new 6-axis IMU governs the MT-09’s high-tech rider aids, including a lean-sensitive 3-mode Traction Control System (TCS), Slide Control System (SCS) front wheel LIFt Control System (LIF) and Brake Control system (BC). With this best-in-class electronic control technology, the all-new MT-09 SP gives you ultimate control in varying weather and surface conditions.

    Full-colour 3.5-inch TFT display

    The 3.5-inch full-colour TFT display features a bar-type tachometer that changes colour as rpm rises or falls, as well as a clock and displays for fuel, average mileage, water temperature, air temperature and a gearshift indicator. Handlebar switches enable you to easily change displays and information, as well as adjust the settings on the optional Genuine Yamaha grip heaters.

    Compact, bifunctional LED headlight

    A compact and handsome bifunctional single LED headlight produces a powerful low and high beam with an excellent beam spread featuring soft edges that are easy on the eye. This single projector headlight gives the all-new MT-09 SP a truly distinctive next generation face, and lateral LED position lights project a signature Y-shape that is matched by the LED taillight.

    Quick Shift System (QSS)

    The new up and down Quick Shifter System enhances the sport riding experience by enabling super-fast upshifts for outstanding acceleration from the more powerful 889cc CP3 engine. The downshift function allows smoother shifting that maintains chassis stability even when cornering, to give a more controlled feel when decelerating.

  • alt

    Lightweight SpinForged wheels

    Weighing 700g less than the previous model, the new SpinForged wheels are the lightest design ever fitted to a production Yamaha, and they give outstanding chassis agility by decreasing the moment of inertia at the rear by 11%. This reduced unsprung weight also enhances suspension performance, and contributes towards an impressive 9% improvement in fuel efficiency.

  • alt

    EU5 890cc CP3 engine

    The newly developed 890cc liquid-cooled 3-cylinder engine is lighter, quicker and more powerful, with more torque at lower rpm. A new intake and twin-tail exhaust produce a beautiful sound that enhances the feeling of acceleration. New fuel injectors give increased efficiency, while optimized gear ratios and a refined A&S clutch match the higher output of the EU5-compliant engine.

  • alt

    Radial front brake master cylinder

    The new MT-09 SP’s state-of-the-art braking system is equipped with a radial front master cylinder that produces a linear supply of hydraulic pressure to the 4-pot calipers that are mounted to the dual 298mm front discs, giving outstanding braking performance with fingertip control. This is only the second production Yamaha to benefit from this advanced race-bred technology.
