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.
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.
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.
