Product Description

YMA is pleased to announce the arrival of the 2020 MT-09.

Three colour choices are available for 2020, Tech Black, Yamaha Blue and the striking Ice Fluo.
The MT-09 shook up the motorcycle market when it was released in 2014. Over the past six years it has evolved to become the machine with looks and technology others
constantly try to emulate.
Often referred to as the ultimate hoon bike, the dark side of Japan inspiration is evident from the very first ride.
Striking and intimidating styling features include LED twin-eye face, front winglets, radiator side fins and a swingarm-mounted rear fender for an ultra-sharp look.

MT-09 is built to appeal to your motorcycling instincts – a high torque triple that’s a real thrill ride. At its beating heart a lightweight 847cc 3-cylinder engine kicks out a wide band of raw, linear torque guaranteed to boost adrenaline.

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.

Swingarm-Mounted Rear Fender

To complement its shorter tail, the MT-09 is equipped with an all-new swingarm-mounted rear fender and registration plate holder featuring a single-sided lightweight forged aluminium stay.

Ultra-compact Tail-end

The new ultra-compact tail end design reinforces the MT-09’s athletic Street Cred stance and enhances the bike’s aggressive good looks.The upwardly slanted sub-frame is shortened by 30mm, and to convey a feeling of lightness and agility, the shorter up-swept tail cowl features new side grills.

Aggressively Styled Twin-eye LED Headlights

Influenced by the uncompromising image of the flagship MT-10, the radically styled face of the MT-09 features an aggressive new LED twin-eye headlight design that underlines this bike’s forceful image as well as its compact and lightweight feel.

Assist & Slipper Clutch

By minimising the unsettling effects caused by high levels of back torque and excessive engine braking, this new A and S clutch gives improved control and gentler handling characteristics when downshifting aggressively.

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.

Compact and Lightweight Liquid-Cooled CP3 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.

Quick Shift System

This new mechanism is the same as the design featured on the multi award-winning YZF-R1, and features a sensor on the shift rod that momentarily cancels drive torque when an upshift is detected, giving more efficient and exciting acceleration through the gears.

Traction Control System

For reduced rear tyre slippage and higher levels of controllability, the MT-09 is equipped with a Traction Control System featuring two different modes as well as an off switch. Mode 1 gives minimum intervention and mode 2 offers maximum intervention, allowing you to adjust or turn off the TCS to suit different conditions and riding styles.

 

Yamaha D-Mode

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.

The new MT-09 is the first Yamaha Hyper Naked model to be equipped with a high-tech 6-axis IMU, one of the most sophisticated pieces of electronics in the industry. Developed from the system used on the YZF-R1 since 2015, the 6-axis IMU on the new MT-09 is 50% smaller and 40%
lighter thanks to a thorough review of the sensor layout.
Constantly measuring acceleration, pitch, roll and yaw, the 6-axis IMU is able to send data in realtime to the ECU which controls the electronic rider aids. The class-leading array of rider aids includes lean sensitive Traction Control System (TCS), Slide Control System (SCS) as well as a front wheel lift control system (LIF) and Brake Control system (BC).

The TCS has three switchable modes, and each mode integrates three of the rider support
systems, meaning that the intervention levels are all changed at once in Modes 1 and 2. Mode 1
delivers moderate intervention, while Mode 2 gives strong intervention and Mode M enables the
rider to select manual settings.
By preventing wheel lock-ups and slides, as well as wheel spin and wheelies, these electronic aids
reduce the workload of the rider, allowing full concentration on the road ahead.
