Yamaha MT-09 (FZ-09) 2014-2016

Yamaha MT-09 was first presented in 2012 at the Intermot-2012 exhibition, and went into serial production since June 2013. In the North American market, this model is called the "Yamaha FZ-09" ".

The lineup:

Main competitors:

The main reason for the creation of the Yamaha MT-09 was Yamaha's desire to compete with the European models Triumph Street Triple and MV Agusta Brutale 800, as well as to have a flagship model in the line of unusual MT motorcycles.

Like all MT series motorcycles, the Yamaha MT-09 is not like the Japanese model in the classic presentation, and this is mainly manifested in the engine - instead of the classic "in-line four", an in-line 3-cylinder engine with a volume of 847 cc is used. see, delivering 115 hp. power and 87.5 Nm of torque. This choice was due to the fact that such a layout of the engine, according to Yamaha, has the best ratio of power, torque and weight.

Other technical features of the Yamaha MT-09 include an aluminum cast frame, a 6-speed gearbox, an inverted front fork, an asymmetric rear swingarm, a TCS engine traction control system (STD - standard, A - sport, B - rain), ABS and electronic throttle.

The rear suspension design is similar to that used on the MT-07 - a shock absorber located horizontally under the saddle, as close to the center axis of the motorcycle as possible. This arrangement was first used on Buell motorcycles and allowed achieving ideal weight distribution without lengthening the wheelbase (as opposed to using a monoshock with a traditional mounting system).

The main modifications of the Yamaha MT-09:

  • Yamaha MT-09 (FZ-09) is the regular version of the motorcycle.
  • Yamaha MT-09 Tracer (FJ-09) - produced since 2015 and is a touring version of the model with a pronounced front fairing, ABS, 18L fuel tank (instead of 14), dashboard from Yamaha XT1200Z Super Tenere, LED optics front with rear and D-mode traction control.

In 2016, based on the engine, frame and chassis from Yamaha MT-09, a factory scrambler was developed - Yamaha XSR 900.

For 2017, the MT-09 gets a redesigned look, new exhaust, tighter rear suspension settings, slipper clutch and quickshifter (works upward only, now comes standard).

In 2019, a three-wheeled model was built on the basis of the MT-09 engine - Yamaha NIKEN.
