Yamaha MT-09

< Back >

The MT-09 competes against the Triumph Street Triple, the Kawasaki Z800, the MV Agusta Brutale and Yamaha's own FZ8. It is intended to restore Yamaha's fortunes, as the factory has in recent years lost its reputation for innovation. The MT-09's product manager, Shun Miyazawa, said Yamaha had considered in-line twins, triples and fours, and V-twins; but that the in-line triple gave the "best solution" of power, torque and low weight.
