MT-09 Overview

Hot on the tails of its worldwide launch, the Yamaha MT09 was launched in Malaysia in January 2018. Feeding the need of riders looking for an aggressive street fighter without sizably lightening their wallets, the MT lineup has been a success story for Yamaha, especially the new redesigned versions. This new version then is noticeably more aggressive not just in looks but also in performance. Since its launch, it has received rave reviews and shifted in big numbers. Yamaha has priced the bike at a reasonable RM 48,920 putting it in competition with the Kawasaki Z900.  

Yamaha MT-09 Design

The styling of Yamaha MT-09 leaves a few distinct impressions. Firstly, there is very minimal bodywork if any on this bike. Move your gaze down from the top and the 14-litre fuel tank is soon replaced by the CF-die aluminium frame which itself makes way for the large engine. Secondly, the bike looks lean compared to the equivalent like KTMs. The tail section is uncharacteristically slim and the seat isn’t even split. There are some striking elements too, like the LED headlight cluster, the swing arm mounted license plate holder, and the short under belly exhaust. If you want some more presence then you may have to get the Night Fluo color scheme that comes with fluorescent green wheels. Get it in the Tech Black color scheme and you might just disappear completely at night.

The compact dimensions expected from a hyper naked are very much present. The MT-09 is 2075 mm long, 815 mm wide, and 1120 mm high with a wheelbase of 1440 mm. There is 135 mm of ground clearance and the bike rides on 10 spoke 17-inch wheels. Wide 120/70 front and 180/55 rear tires round out its overall appearance.

The instruments are relegated to the tiniest of digital screens. Yet, somehow it displays the traction level, power modes, fuel consumption, trip meters on top of the usual information while still managing to show the time.

MT-09 Ride & Handling

The MT-09 has a supermoto level 815 mm seat height and the handlebars are similarly wide. This combined with the thin tank gives the rider a slightly aggressive riding posture that still does not tax their comfort much. The rider’s footpegs are centrally located and the flat seat means they can easily move about. The chassis is aided by 43 mm inverted front forks with separate adjustability for compression and rebound damping on each fork and a monoshock in the rear.

All this means that the bike’s 193 kg mass can be shifted, powerslide, and tipped into corners with very little effort. Still, the ride is plush and comfortable. Again this makes the MT-09 very friendly to learners. The same cannot be said for the pillion rider comfort mainly due to high placed rear foot pegs. The bike also comes with three-way adjustable traction control that along with the wide and grippy tires, ensures that the bike stays on its feet.  

Yamaha MT-09 Engine & Fuel Consumption

Powering the Yamaha MT-09 is an 847 cc 3-cylinder 4 valved liquid cooled and fuel injected engine. Like the R1, it too uses a cross-plane crankshaft that reduces inertia torque. Using forged aluminium pistons, Yamaha has managed to employ a very high compression ratio. This is also claimed to be the most compact power plant in its segment. Power output is rated at 115 hp at 10000 rpm along with 87.5 Nm of torque at 8500 rpm. The engine is also equipped with a balancer shaft for cancelling vibrations. There are three power modes to choose from allowing you to vary the power on tap from aggressive to mild.

The bike uses a 6-speed transmission aided by an assist and slipper clutch. It gives the MT-09 a lighter clutch action and minimizes the effect of back-torque and excessive engine braking. It also comes with a quick shifter to allow smoother and quicker upshifts. The engine delivers its torque in a linear, learner-friendly manner with a big heap served at the bottom end. Wheelies come easy. It is indeed a hyper naked street fighter and making it act like a hooligan is very easy. The 0-100 kmph comes in at under 4 seconds while the bike tops out at 225 kmph.

MT-09 Braking & Safety

The front gets a pair of 298 mm discs with 4-piston callipers and the rear gets a 245 mm single disc with a single piston calliper. ABS comes as standard on the Yamaha MT09.

Yamaha MT-09 Verdict

Yamaha has successfully taken a value for money approach with the MT-09. Not just this, it has the potential to go head to head against the most expensive and aggressive street fighters while still being usable by learners. It is a comprehensively equipped street fighter that can be ridden like an absolute hooligan by even inexperienced riders. A very good effort by Yamaha.

    I am a big fan of the MT 09. It’s an exceptionally compact and naked fighter bike. The feel and performance of the bike is aggressive but it doesn’t intimidate you. The riding position is delightfully aggressive but it doesn’t compromise on the ride quality. Riders of all heights will be able to maintain a great posture while riding the Read More

    I bought this whole new color variant of the recently released MT-09 and I am highly satisfied with its riding quality. No other bike can match the riding experience that this bike offers to its rider. This experience is offered to the riders by the 847cc engine that delivers a maximum power output of 115hp that enhances its performance. The Read More

    I recently bought the latest MT-09 when it was released with a new color variant option in June 2020. I have ridden quite a few liter-class bikes and 900cc bikes, but the riding experience of the MT-09 is simply unmatched. The next-level riding experience is made possible by the 847 cc inline-three engines that make a maximum power of 115 Read More

    This motorcycle from Yamaha does get a weird design which is difficult to comprehend, however, the MT-09 does boast a powerful and responsive engine that takes your riding experience to the next level. This bike is blessed with advanced electronics and safety features that make my ride reliable and pleasant. The riding comfort is very good and I seldom feel Read More

    Armando Sep 28, 2020 for Yamaha MT-09

    In my opinion, the Yamaha MT-09 is quite a bold step by Yamaha, by moving from making brawny and super muscular FZs in the past to the leaner yet muscular MTs of the today’s generation. The MT-09, in that very sense, has impressed me a lot, with its super athletic stance which looks sturdy yet sharp to give supermotos a Read More

    Are you seeking a bike that seems to have come out of a sci fi novel page? Then this is the perfect bike for you. The look of this bike is way aggressive and rugged.
