2018 Yamaha MT-09 - Matte Metallic Gray
The MT-09 naked sports roadster has taken the next step in its evolution. Heading an impressive list of changes for 2017 is the addition of confidence inspiring ABS brakes, all- new super aggressive "twin eye" LED headlights and a revised fully adjustable 41 mm inverted fork thanks to the addition of compression damping adjustment. The one thing that didn't change is the incredible 847 cc, 3 cylinder engine that is guaranteed to put a grin on your face every time you twist the throttle.
Power: Liquid-cooled 4-stroke, 850cc in-line 3-cylinder fuel-injected engine with a downdraft intake. The engine has been tuned to provide plenty of low to mid-range torque with strong yet linear throttle response.
Brakes: ABS equipped brakes feature dual 298 mm discs with 4-piston calipers up front and a 245 mm disc with single piston caliper in the rear providing peace of mind while braking under pressure or in wet conditions.
Style: The MT-09 features an aggressively styled twin-eye headlight assembly that gives this best-selling naked sport a more menacing look. The slanting dual headlights are equipped with four LED bulbs, accompanied by dual LED positioning lights.
