Torque-rich, compliant CP3 Engine
Once you’ve experienced the MT-09’s ‘CP3’, 847cc, 3-cylinder crossplane engine you’ll be hooked on its instant supply of raw and linear torque that makes it the most exciting bike in the category. The engine comes with a refined and improved power character.
Quick Shift System / A&S clutch
The YZF-R1 type Quick Shift System (QSS) gives smoother and quicker upshifts and enables you to make best use of the MT-09’s raw and linear torque. This dynamic Hyper Naked is also fitted with an A&S clutch that give improved chassis stability when you’re downshifting rapidly before entering a bend.
Electronic control technology
The MT-09’s advanced electronic control technology is ready to adapt to different riding situations and varying road surfaces. The 3-position D-Mode function lets you adjust engine power character from mild to aggressive, while the Traction Control System (TCS) and ABS intervene when required to enable you to achieve high levels of control.
Swingarm mounted licence plate holder
The rear end of the MT-09 has a fresh look thanks to the use of a swingarm-mounted licence plate holder featuring a lightweight single-sided aluminium stay. To complete the rear end there’s an LCD rear light and tail cowl that emphasise the bike’s light and agile looks.
Aggressive LED double headlights
The MT-09 features an aggressively styled twin-eye headlight assembly that gives this best-selling Hyper Naked a more menacing look. Inspired by the flagship MT-10, the slanting dual headlights are equipped with four LED bulbs, accompanied by dual LED position lights.
Fully adjustable forks
The bike’s 41mm inverted front forks get a significant upgrade with the addition of a compression damping function, giving the MT-09 even greater sporting potential. For improved suspension performance and a wider range of adjustability the functions are separated, with compression damping in the right fork leg, and rebound damping in the left leg.
