2015 Yamaha MT-09
The Yamaha MT-09 is an aggressive naked designed for the rebel in you. Featuring a sharp design language, modern technologies and a sporty riding position, the Yamaha MT-09 will reward you with an unforgiveable riding experience each time you jump on its saddle.
The motorcycle is built around a 3 cylinder, liquid cooled, 4 stroke, DOHC, 4 valves engine with a displacement of 847 Cm³. The engine generates a maximum power of 84.6 KW (115PS) at 10,000 Rpm and 87.5 Nm (8.9 Kg-M) of torque at 8,500 Rpm. All this power is transferred to the ground by means of a constant mesh six speed transmission with wet, multiple disc clutch.
The bike rides on new style lightweight 10-spoke alloy wheels which are wrapped in 17-inch radial tyres that measure 120/70ZR17 at the front and 180/55ZR17 at the rear.

2015 Yamaha MT-09 Features and Benefits:
New style lightweight 10-spoke alloy wheels with 17-inch radial tyres
Lightweight designs are used throughout, and to achieve a low unsprung weight the MT-09 is fitted with all-new 10-spoke alloy wheels. The lightweight wheels are fitted with newly-developed radial tyres - 120/70ZR17 at the front and 180/55ZR17 at the rear - giving stable and responsive handling.
Compact and lightweight 850cc 3-cylinder engine
To keep the MT-09 as light, slim and compact as possible, our designers have developed an all-new CF aluminium die-cast frame. Its low weight and excellent rigidity balance contribute towards the bike’s agile handling performance, and help to keep the overall wet weight down to just 188kg.
Monocross suspension with asymmetric CF die-cast swingarm
The rear end features a lightweight asymmetric CF die-cast swingarm that gives a low unsprung weight for responsive suspension action and a comfortable ride. An almost horizontal rear shock is situated beneath the seat, and the externally mounted swingarm pivots keep the chassis slim for a compact riding position.
Stress-free ergonomics and a ’slim-fit’ riding position
The new MT-09 is designed to handle a variety of roles, from sport riding through to weekend trips and the daily ride to work. Wide, tapered handlebars and a long, flat seat give stress-free ergonomics - and the sculpted 14-litre fuel tank with knee recesses ensures a comfortable ’slim-fit’ riding position.
Concealed 3-into-1 exhaust
Equipped with connecting pipes for a good pulse effect, the compact 3-into-1 exhaust system contributes towards mass-centralisation for agile handling. Featuring a corrosion-proof Nanofilm coating, the three stainless steel downpipes run into a short and compact EU3-compliant muffler which emits a throaty note.
