Yamaha MT-09 - June 11, 2013, 09:02 AM

New info about the Yamaha triple:
Yamaha unveils new MT-09 sport bike after Dark Side teaser campaign

Yamaha has released a new concept sport bike called the MT-09, backed up by a lavish YouTube video showing four of them riding around the streets of Japan at night.
The release comes after a two-week long teaser campaign designed to celebrate the 'Dark Side' of Japan.
Yamaha Motor UK has described the new bike as "a new kind of brutal animal, which is about to change the sport motorcycle world".
The MT-09 certainly has a rich heritage to live up to, with the name linking it to the MT-01 muscle bike, which met with much acclaim when it was released back in 2005 thanks to its striking visuals and thunderous engine sound.
In a statement released through Facebook, Yamaha Motor explains that the "MT-09 is a whole new concept in sport bike design. With a compact new chassis and high-torque 3-cylinder engine, this new generation performance machine is designed for riders who appreciate character and soul."
The release continues by explaining that the MT-09 is powered by a lightweight 850cc three-cylinder engine, which should deliver plenty of torque and rapid acceleration.
Other key points include the compact aluminium chassis and upright riding position, making the bike equally suitable for city riding and blasting around on a Sunday morning.

Like the concept of the bike, but the commercial is weak.

I wanted the MT-01, but could never get one in the US. Closest was Canada, but way overpriced because of supply/demand. This bike is interesting, and I will bet that the US will never see it...

I can't decide if it looks good or not. I'm glad it looks less like an alien bug than other bikes in the class (e.g., recent nakeds from kawi and honda).

Motor is interesting. Bike weighs 414 lbs weight which is very cool. Brakes and suspension are mid-grade at best in order to meet typical aggressive Japanese price point though.


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

Suspension appears to be low rent. Hopefully the fork internals won't be too hard to upgrade. Other than that not bad, particularly if they stick to that price point. I like the fact one of the Japanese companies finally are making a naked sporty bike that doesn't weigh way more than a similar engine pure sport bike would. The Europeans seem to have figured that out a while ago.

I was thinking the same, hoping the aftermarket suspension guys will start development work...NOW!

Just a blacked out fz8 in a triple form. Yeah, something else already exists called a triumph that looks and has a better naked following.
