The new 2018 Yamaha MT-09 mounts a newly developed 847 cc, 3-Cylinder, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, DOHC, 4-valves engine with ABS. This puts out a decent 115 PS @ 10,000 rpm and 87.5 Nm @ 8,500 rpm.

Yamaha MT-09 is targeted towards the youngsters who are stepping up from 600 cc sports model or thinking for downsizing from a large-displacement model and looking for a two-wheeler with superior characters like agile performance with swaggering power yet a compact build for efficient handling. This model will be imported as a Completely Built Unit (CBU) by India Yamaha Motor Pvt. Ltd. (IYM). It will be available in three colour options – Bluish Gray Solid, Deep Purplish Blue and Matte Dark Gray.
