2015 Yamaha MT-09 Street Rally
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.

2015 Yamaha MT-09 Street Rally Features and Benefits:
Compact and lightweight 850cc 3-cylinder engine
At the heart of this next generation sport bike is an all-new 850cc 3-cylinder engine that generates huge levels of raw torque and strong high rpm power. Equipped with forged pistons and offset cylinders, this compact and lightweight engine is ready to bring the passion and emotion back to your two-wheeled experience.
Lightweight CF die-cast aluminium frame
To keep the MT-09 Street Rally 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.
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.
Sporty motard-style 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.
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 Street Rally is fitted with all-new 10-spoke alloy wheels. These are fitted with newly-developed radial tyres - 120/70ZR17 at the front and 180/55ZR17 at the rear - giving stable and responsive handling.
