Revolution of the Icon
Its large-capacity 889cc EU5-compliant CP3 engine pushes out higher levels of torque at lower rpm, giving you even more explosive acceleration and stronger road-focused performance. A high-tech 6-axis IMU governs the best-in-class electronic rider aids to give you ultimate control. And the QSS enables superfast upshifting and more stable downshifting.
For razor sharp handling the new model features a compact aluminium chassis along with adjustable suspension and super light wheels. Dual 298mm front brakes with radial master cylinder ensure fingertip control. And the radical next generation styling and pure coverless chassis design confirm the MT-09 as the ultimate Hyper Naked.

The MT story began nearly a decade ago when Yamaha’s top designers set out to create one of the most important new models in the history of Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. This was to be no ordinary motorcycle. The brief was to build a radical new machine with a big-torque engine and highly agile chassis that would be like no other. And the rest is history.
