    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 exhaust produce a beautiful sound that enhances the feeling of acceleration. New fuel injectors increase efficiency, while optimised gear ratios and a refined A&S clutch match the higher output of the EU5-compliant engine.

    All-new lightweight CF aluminium die-cast frame

    Entirely new compact CF die-cast aluminium frame design – a modern take on the deltabox layout. Higher level of chassis stiffness for improved rider feedback, stability and increased dynamic riding window. The optimised swingarm pivot structure, light, slim chassis and more laidback feel make this bike your perfect, day-to-day partner.

    Next-generation design and styling

    Pure, bare and beautiful – the new-generation MT design leads the Hyper Naked line into the new decade. Minimalist ‘coverless’ styling gets rid of any unnecessary bodywork and uses only the frame and structural components to express lightness and agility. Meanwhile, the new crystal graphite frame finish accentuates the functional beauty of the mechanical parts.

    6-Axis IMU plus lean-sensitive rider aids

    Developed from the YZF-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 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 high and low beam, with an excellent beam spread that has soft, easy-on-the-eye edges. This single projector headlight gives the all-new MT-09 a truly distinctive, next-generation face, while the lateral LED position lights project a signature Y-shape, 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 gear changes, which maintains chassis stability even when cornering, to give a more controlled feel when decelerating.

    Lightweight SpinForged wheels

    Weighing 700g less than the previous model, the new Spin Forged wheels ensure 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

    Adjustable suspension

    Fully adjustable 41mm front forks run with optimised settings that match the character of the compact new high-rigidity frame and reduce the tendency to pitch, giving a smoother and more controlled ride. The adjustable rear suspension features new settings, as well as a revised linkage to match the all-new high-rigidity swingarm.

  • alt

    Radial front brake master cylinder

    The new MT-09’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 callipers, which 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.
