Wild, aggressive and fast, the Yamaha MT-09 Street Rally promises to deliver a thrilling riding experience each time you fire up its engine.

Talking about the engine, the motorcycle is powered by a 3-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, DOHC, 4-valves engine with a displacement of 847 Cm³. Fire it up and it will crank out a maximum power of 84.6 KW (115PS) at 10,000 rpm and 87.5 Nm (8.9 Kg-M) at 8,500 Rpm. The engine’s power is kept in check by a constant mesh, 6-speed transmission.

As far as wheels are concerned, the motorcycle rides on newly style lightweight 10-spoke alloy rims wrapped in newly-developed radial tyres - 120/70ZR17 at the front and 180/55ZR17 at the rear.

Other notable features include the slim and lightweight CF die-cast aluminium frame, an asymmetric CF die-cast aluminium swingarm and Monocross rear suspension with horizontal shock.

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.

The new MT-09 Street Rally is designed to handle a variety of roles, from sport riding through to weekend trips and the ride to work. Wide, tapered handlebars and a long, flat seat give an aggressive motard riding position - and the sculpted 14-litre fuel tank with knee recesses ensures a compact riding position.

Aggressive motard bodywork and chassis parts

For a more aggressive image the Street Rally is finished in silver and black with Race Blu accents, and features an exclusive range of body components - including a headlight cover, tank shrouds, side number plates, fork covers and knuckle guards. Wider footrests, a slimmer seat and engine underguard complete this motard package.
