For 2017 Yamaha's designers have created an even more dynamic look, while also enhancing its performance potential and thrill factor. With its aggressive new styling and enhanced technology, the new MT-09 continues to push the boundaries and inspire and excite every thrill seeking rider.
Aggressively styled twin-eye LED headlights
The radically restyled face of the new MT-09 features an aggressive LED twin-eye headlight design that underlines this bike's forceful image as well as its compact and lightweight feel. To accentuate the MT-09's intimidating looks, a pair of slim running lights sit below the new twin-eye headlights - and a pair of sharp-looking winglets follow the contours of the headlight assembly to reinforce the charismatic new look. For 2017 the multi-function instruments are moved closer to the new headlight assembly to create a more unified structure, and the indicators are relocated next to the radiator.
Ultra-compact tail end
The new ultra-compact tail end design reinforces the MT-09's athletic stance and enhances the bike's aggressive good looks. For 2017 the upwardly slanted subframe is shortened by 30mm, and to convey a feeling of lightness and agility, the shorter upswept tail cowl features new side grills. To give this definitive Hyper Naked a distinctive and dynamic appearance, the bold tail end is equipped with a new integrated 3-dimensional LED taillight featuring a twin apex design that forms an 'M' shape when viewed from above. The MT-09 is also equipped with a newly designed seat - which is flatter and 5mm higher than previously - and has been specifically shaped to enable the rider to hold their seating position during braking, cornering and acceleration.
Swingarm-mounted rear fender
To complement its shorter tail, the 2017 model is equipped with an all-new swingarm-mounted rear fender and licence plate holder featuring a single-sided lightweight forged aluminium stay.
Sharper, stronger and more compact design
Yamaha's designers have also carefully reworked a number of the key stylistic features including new side fins to the radiator, and larger tank-mounted air scoops to reinforce the MT-09's brutal good looks.
Assist & Slipper (A&S) clutch
One of the most important performance enhancing changes for the 2017 MT-09 is the adoption of a new A&S clutch that improves the overall sport riding experience and delivers a number of real benefits to MT-09 riders. Featuring specially designed assist and slipper cams as well as new springs with an optimized rate, the A&S clutch engages more solidly when pulling away from a standing start and during acceleration. The most important feature of this clutch is that it helps to ensure stable chassis performance during heavy engine braking. By minimizing the unsettling effects caused by high levels of back torque and excessive engine braking, this new A&S clutch gives improved control and gentler handling characteristics when downshifting aggressively - and its 20% lighter lever load reduces rider effort.
Quick Shift System (QSS)
With its strong, linear torque, compact dimensions and agile chassis, the MT-09 is built to deliver the ultimate in riding excitement. For 2017 the MT-09 is equipped with a Quick Shift System (QSS), enabling riders to enjoy faster and smoother clutchless upshifts.
High specification front suspension
The new MT-09 is also equipped with a high specification front suspension system. Its inverted 41mm forks now feature a new compression damping adjuster in the left fork tube, while the existing rebound damping function is located in the right tube. By locating the compression and rebound mechanisms in separate forks tubes the flow rate of hydraulic oil can be optimized, giving greater adjustability and more consistent performance.
Eyes of Darkness
The motorcycle that changed everything has evolved into an even sharper and more technologically advanced Hyper Naked - and this dynamic MT-09 is built to inspire today's generation of thrill seeking riders like no other bike in its class.
First impressions are everything - and with its intimidating LED twin-eye face, the aggressively styled MT-09 demands attention. The front winglets and radiator side fins give an ultra-sharp look - and to reinforce the bike's uncompromising style we've designed a shorter tail.
With its radical looks, refined bodywork and higher specification, this unstoppable force is ready to take your Hyper Naked riding experience to the next level.
