ADVANCED 889 CC CP3 ENGINE
2023 Yamaha MT 09 SP

The 889 cc liquid-cooled 3-cylinder produces high-torque out of a lightweight package to produce a powerful yet playful MT that emits a beautiful sound to enhance the feeling of acceleration thanks to its tuned intake and exhaust. The MT-09’s fuel injection system increases efficiency, while optimized gear ratios and its assist-and-slipper clutch match the higher output of the EU5-compliant engine.

PREMIUM KYB & ÖHLINS SUSPENSION 2023 Yamaha MT 09 SP

A fully adjustable KYB front fork features a diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating that ensures ultra-smooth and responsive suspension action, plus low- and high-speed compression damping adjusters for a high level of tuning accuracy. The premium-spec rear suspension is fully adjustable and utilizes an Öhlins rear shock absorber to bring supersport handling to the naked sport class.

PREMIUM FIT AND FINISH 2023 Yamaha MT 09 SP

The 2022 MT-09 SP offers riders premium components and details including cruise control, R1M-inspired paint and graphics, a double-stitched seat, special swingarm finish, anodized black handlebar and levers, black drive sprocket and clear-smoked front and rear brake fluid reservoirs.

ENGINE

  • 889 cc CP3 Engine    
    • The 889 cc liquid-cooled 3-cylinder produces high-torque out of a lightweight package to produce a powerful yet playful MT that emits a beautiful sound to enhance the feeling of acceleration thanks to its tuned intake and exhaust. 
  • Yamaha Chip Control Throttle (YCC-T).
    • YCC-T electronically controls throttle valves for outstanding throttle response & controllability
    • YCC-T system provides precise control of intake air volume for a smoother torque curve
    • ECU that controls YCC-T is capable of responding to changes at a speed of 1000th of a second
  • Yamaha D-Mode variable throttle control ... 3 modes available.
    • enables the rider to adjust the performance characteristics of the engine based on riding preferences or riding conditions
    • standard mode emphasizes very linear throttle & torque feel of the engine
    • A mode allows the rider to enjoy even sportier engine performance in the low to mid rpms
    • B Mode reduces throttle response for riding situations that require softer power characteristics, such as slippery or wet conditions
    • D-Mode button is conveniently located on the RHS handle bar switch gear
  • Traction control system with 2 modes plus off.
    • mode 1 provides mid-level intervention (allows some wheel spin)
    • mode 2 provides maximum intervention (no wheel spin)
    • works in conjunction with the YCC-T system (utilizing same wheel sensors as ABS system)
    • system senses when the rear wheel begins to spin & modifies the YCC-T function, ignition timing & fuel injection volume to reduce power & eliminate wheel spin
    • status indicator / warning light in meter assembly
  • Electronic Control Unit (ECU) utilizes a powerful 32-bit processor for fast control of the injection, engine management & ignition processes.
  • Air box features dual resonator chambers & unequal internal intake funnel lengths for all 3 cylinders.
    • benefit is a wide torque curve & exciting intake sound that accentuates the exhaust note
    • viscous paper type air filter is used
  • Compact 6-speed transmission.
    • gear ratios are optimized to accentuate the torque & throttle response of the engine
    • accessory plug & play quick shifter
  • Compact, slipper (back limiter) clutch with assist.
    • slipper clutch reduces the negative effects of engine braking on handling & suspension
    • reduces rear wheel hop/ chatter when decelerating for improved riding performance & smoother corner entries
    • assist function reduces clutch lever effort by up to 20%
  • Accessory quick shifter ready.
    • allows for faster upshifts by eliminating the need to close the throttle or pull in the clutch
    • works with standard shift pattern
    • reduces wear & tear on the clutch & transmission
    • easy plug-and-play installation (part number: BS2-E81A0-V0-00)
  • Revised, compact, low mounted, 3 into 1 exhaust system.
    • stainless steel header pipes with special "Nano-film" coating
    • muffler is a triple expansion type with a 3-way honeycomb catalyzer to reduce emissions
    • low mounted design centralizes mass for excellent handling & light weight feeling
    • revised muffler cover & end cap for improved appearance
  • Flat design radiator with new side scoops.
    • protector plate on lower edge of rad prevents small stones from hitting the rad & cooling fan
    • new side scoops direct air into rad plus adds a styling protector plate on lower edge of rad prevents small stones from hitting the rad & cooling fan
  • Wet sump lubrication system with liquid-cooled oil cooler & easy access drain plug & oil filter.
    • liquid-cooled oil cooler maintains stable lubricant temperatures for extended engine life
    • easy access spin-on type oil filter & drain plug for fast oil changes
  • Maintenance-free transistor controlled ignition (TCI).
    • produces a strong spark for fast starts
    • provides precise ignition timing / mapping for optimum engine performance at all rpms

CHASSIS/SUSPENSION

Lightweight CF Aluminium Die-cast Frame    
A modern take on the Deltabox layout—featuring a higher level of chassis stiffness for improved rider feedback, stability and an increased dynamic riding window.

Premium KYB & Öhlins Suspension   
A fully adjustable KYB front fork features a diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating that ensures ultra-smooth and responsive suspension action, plus low- and high-speed compression damping adjusters for a high level of tuning accuracy. The premium-spec rear suspension is fully adjustable and utilizes an Öhlins rear shock absorber to bring supersport handling to the naked sport class.

Lightweight SpinForged Wheels    
SpinForged wheels give outstanding chassis agility by decreasing the moment of inertia and enhancing suspension performance. 

DETAILS

Next-generation design and styling    
New-generation design leads the MT family line into the new decade. Minimalist styling showcases the frame and structural components.

6-Axis IMU plus lean-sensitive rider aids    
Developed from the YZF-R1, the compact new 6-axis IMU governs the MT-09’s high-tech rider aids, including:

  • 3-mode Traction Control System (TCS)
  • Slide Control System (SCS)
  • Front-wheel Lift Control System (LIF)
  • Brake Control system (BC)

(note: TCS, SCS and LIF are lean-sensitive)
 
Full-colour 3.5-inch TFT display    
The 3.5-inch full-colour TFT display features a bar-type tachometer that changes colour as rpm rises or falls. Handlebar switches enable you to easily change displays and information, as well as adjust the settings on the optional Genuine Yamaha heated grips.

Compact, bifunctional LED headlight    
The new single LED headlight produces a powerful beam with an excellent  spread featuring soft edges while giving the MT-09 a truly distinctive next-generation face, and lateral LED position lights project a signature Y-shape that is matched by the LED taillight.

Quick Shift System (QSS)    
The new up and down Quick Shifter System enhances the sport riding experience by enabling super-fast upshifts for outstanding acceleration. The downshift function allows smoother shifting to maintain chassis stability even when cornering, to give a more controlled feel when decelerating.
