The Class-Defining Naked Sportbike
Packing aggressive style and impressive performance, Yamaha’s original Hypernaked blew open the sportbike segment. Now wearing the MT-09 badge and more refined than ever, it features a potent inline-triple motor, adjustable traction control, a fully-adjustable fork, ABS, and an aggressive look unlike anything else on the road.
The MT-09’s 847cc CP3® engine combines advanced electronic systems—including YCC-T®, Yamaha D-Mode and multi-mode traction control—with a crossplane concept crankshaft to deliver an exciting, torquey and quick-revving engine character built around rider-centric control.
Sporty, Agile Chassis
Thanks to the compact motor and narrow frame design, the MT-09 weighs in at only 425 pounds. Combined with optimized chassis dimensions and rider ergonomics, the MT-09 achieves a sporty, light and neutral handling character, with an upright riding position ready for just about anything.
With a fully-adjustable fork and two-way adjustable laydown Monocross® shock, the MT-09 brings improved tuneability across a wide range of road conditions and riding styles, with outstanding front-end feedback and confidence.
Cutting-Edge LED Lighting
With a brilliant quad LED headlight assembly and bright LED taillight design, the MT-09 illuminates the road ahead and provides exceptional road visibility with a high-quality appearance.
Comfortable, Upright Ergonomics
Enjoy every ride thanks to upright ergonomics that balance front-end feedback with do-it-all practicality. The tapered aluminum handlebar, ideal placement of the seat and footpegs, and ultra-narrow frame and fuel tank create an excellent sense of feel between rider and machine. The long, flat seat improves rider comfort, and is roomier for a passenger, too.
The MT-09 features LED headlights for brilliant illumination. The quad headlight unit produces a crisp spread of light for confidence in low-light conditions, and is matched to a 3D taillight design for head-turning style.
The MT-09 features an aggressive style with a high quality modern look, centered on the floating-style headlight unit with quad LED headlights. Slim radiator shrouds and air scoops give a unified, mass-forward appearance, accentuated by the short tail section and swingarm-mounted fender.
Ready to Accessorize
The MT-09 is ready for a range of Genuine Yamaha accessories, including windscreens, luggage and more. Performance-minded riders can also install a Quick Shift System to allow for clutchless full- throttle upshifts for maximum acceleration.
Advanced Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle
The ride-by-wire Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T®) system senses the slightest throttle input by the rider and instantaneously calculates the ideal throttle valve opening, and then actuates the throttle valves to actively control intake volume. This technology contributes to the rider’s feeling of torque and controllability from the 3-cylinder engine.
Adjustable Traction Control System
A Traction Control System (TCS) assists the rider in managing traction on various road conditions by quickly modulating throttle opening, ignition timing and fuel volume. The MT-09’s TCS includes two modes to suit various road conditions, and can also be disabled by the rider if they so choose.
Selectable D-Mode Throttle Mapping
The MT-09 features Yamaha’s D-Mode system to allow the rider to choose the optimum engine character for their riding situation and preferences. The rider can choose from three throttle valve control maps (Standard Mode, “A” Mode, and “B” Mode) for different throttle response characteristics at the push of a button.
Advanced LCD Instrumentation
The lightweight, compact all-LCD meter is mounted to the floating-style headlight assembly for a technical appearance and features a digital bar-type display with prominent speedometer and gear position indicator, as well as readouts for TCS and D-Mode settings, a fuel gauge, and multiple trip computer functions such as average and current fuel economy.
