Compact and lightweight liquid-cooled 3-cylinder 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.
Yamaha D-MODE: select the soul you want
- 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.
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.
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.
