Yamaha has launched the updated MT-09 ABS and MT-09 SP ABS in the Japanese market. The naked roadster motorcycles have been updated both in terms of cosmetics as well as mechanicals. The changes include a new engine, a new frame, new wheels, revised exhaust note, a new Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and revised styling. The Japanese automaker is planning to retail 1400 units of both these motorcycles annually in its domestic market. 

Head Light

The new MT-09 is a sharp, aggressive and muscular looking motorcycle. It comes with tank extensions on both sides with graphics on it, an underbelly exhaust, a single-piece seat, a sleek tail section, a sharp 14-litre fuel tank and an alien-ish design for its headlamp. It is further offered with features like a bi-function LED headlamp, LED position lamp, 3.5-inch coloured instrument cluster, four riding modes, cruise control, quick shifter, traction control, slipper clutch and a new Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). 

The naked roadster is powered by an 888cc inline three-cylinder water-cooled engine that produces 118bhp at 10,000rpm and 93Nm at 7,000rpm. All this power and torque is taken to its wheels using a six-speed gearbox. The suspension duty is handled by telescopic forks at the front and a swingarm at the rear. Meanwhile, for braking, it employs a dual disc at the front and a single disc at the rear.

The MT-09 SP ABS will arrive in the Japanese market on 28 July 2021, followed by the MT-09 ABS on 26 August 2021. The latter is available in three colour options: Pastel Dark Gray, Deep Purplish Blue Metallic C and Matte Dark Grey Metallic 6, and is priced at Yen 1,100,000 (Rs 7.36 lakh). Meanwhile, the MT-09 SP ABS is available in only Black Metallic X colour option and is priced at Yen 1,265,000 (Rs 8.46 lakh). The MT-09 used to be sold in the Indian market at a price tag of Rs 10.2 lakh ex-showroom and was brought here via the CBU route, which was further discontinued. The company doesn't seem to have any plans of relaunching the bike in the country anytime soon.
