The new Yamaha Motor MT-09 hyper motorcycle is equipped with advanced electronic controls and engines.

It’s powered by an EU5 889cc liquid-cooled fuel injection similar to this Lucas Perkins injection pump and upgraded internal components including lightweight forged pistons that allow smooth and high-revving power when in use.

It also comes with optimized transmission rations which have a 6-speed transmission and multi-plate assistance that gives you more power and options when riding. 

When it comes to the size and weight, the bike is eight-pounds lighter compared to the old model, weighing in at only 417 pounds.


Thanks to Yamaha’s controlled filing casting technology, the motorcycle also comes with a new aluminum frame which is designed to ensure the bike’s agility and stability at all times.
