The official presentation of the renewed Yamaha MT-09 It will arrive in a few hours but some photos leaked in advance already show us how the wide handlebar bike will be updated, which uses its Euro5 tuning to review some details of its aesthetics.
The performance is still to be confirmed, the rumors about the displacement rise to 890 cc and the power up to 118 hp is still in hand, although we will confirm all this afternoon when we have all the official information, as well as possibly the price and its availability.
Confirmed the new front optics and other changes to the naked
A few days ago we were able to see a teaser in the form of a video showing what appeared to be the new Yamaha MT-09, although with the leaked photos some more unknown now arise. And it is that as some have noticed, in some scenes of the sequence it was also shown what the new Yamaha MT-07 would be.
The most misleading thing actually was a silence Similar to the one worn by the current Yamaha MT-10 and which does not appear in the leaked photos of this Yamaha MT-09. This means that perhaps it is the MT-07 that finally goes to this type of exhaust but not the 900cc model, which in the images is shown with a much shorter and lower one, quite revised in terms of design. .
On the front the new front optics, completely modified and in which an LED main headlight is shown accompanied by two other V-shaped strips and with the same lighting technology. But this is something that had already been anticipated in the official video and that perhaps will also come to the Yamaha MT-07.
Other details, some taken from information that came to light in advance, are i review of filing forms, the incorporation of two air intakes and a chassis that is still the usual double beam but which uses the diamond-shaped structure of the most capable sports cars of the house. The swingarm, meanwhile, is now straighter and no longer stretches to make room for the license plate holder, which now appears on the tail, which together with the rest of the aesthetic changes give it a more aggressive profile.
Another important news is the arrival of a color TFT screen which will serve as a dashboard and which shows us in one of the photos that the Yamaha MT-09 will have a selector of at least four driving modes, with traction and tilt control and with Quickshifter gearbox for both the gears and the lower gears. We will soon be able to give you more details on this bike, which will debut the new three-cylinder engine with 890 cubic cc and 118 hp. A block that, among other things, should also reach the necessary updates for Yamaha Niken, XSR900 and Tracer 900.
