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.

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.

Torque-rich, EU4 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, and is fully EU4 compliant.

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 gets a whole new look thanks to the use of a swingarm-mounted license plate holder featuring a lightweight single-sided aluminium stay. To complete the rear end makeover there's an LCD rear light and restyled tail cowl that emphasise the bike's light and agile looks.

Dynamic styling

As well as its bold and futuristic LED twin-eye face, the latest MT-09 features a range of stylistic changes that sharpen up its looks to make it an even more desirable Hyper Naked. The lightweight radiator side fins together with larger tank-mounted air scoops and headlight winglets give a clean and dynamic look.

Agile handling

The key to the MT-09's famed agility is the use of a compact aluminium frame and swingarm that use the CP3 engine as a stressed member. With its lightweight chassis and centralized mass, this multi-role Hyper Naked is one of the most agile bikes in its class.

Improved quick shift system (QSS)

A new higher specification Quickshift System (QSS) offers clutchless upshifting and downshifting. By giving seamless full throttle upshifts and quicker downshifts, the QSS helps to maintain chassis stability for higher levels of controllability – and also reduces the physical and mental input required by the rider.

Magnesium wheels, aluminium fuel tank

The YZF-R1's 17-inch wheels are manufactured from magnesium in order to minimize unsprung weight for responsive suspension performance – and the beautifully crafted 17-litre fuel tank is made from aluminium.

6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)

The highly sophisticated 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) is equipped with Gyro/G sensors that monitor 3D motion data which is sent to the ECU – and this activates the lift control sytem (LIF) as well as the banking angle sensitive rear wheel Slide Control System (SCS) and Traction Control System (TCS) for greater control.

Thin Film Transistor (TFT) LCD instrument panel

The YZF-R1's instrument panel is one of the most sophisticated units fitted to any motorcycle, and features a Thin Film Transistor (TFT) LCD panel. The multi function dispay shows a wide range of data is shown in full colour, making all the information easy to understand.
