On the sidelines of the Saluto RX launch earlier today, Yamaha Motor India said to carandbike.com that it will be commencing deliveries for the recently launched MT-09 performance street-fighter from May this year. Much to the surprise of fans and journalists alike, the Japanese bike maker launched the MT-09 street-fighter performance motorcycle in the country at the 2016 Auto Expo and had only commenced bookings for the performance motorcycle at the time.
The Yamaha MT-09 was launched at a price tag of Rs. 10.20 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and is being brought into the country via the CBU route, thereby joining the ranks of the VMax, new generation R1 and R1M in the bike maker's stable. The triple-cylinder street-fighter is known for overwhelming riding capabilities and was the flagship model of Yamaha's naked MT range until the litre-class MT-10 came along last year.
Doing a quick recap on the specifications, the Yamaha MT-09 draws power from a 847cc, in-line three-cylinder liquid-cooled, 4-stroke engine that churns out 113bhp of peak power at 10000rpm and 87.5Nm of torque at 8500rpm. The motor comes paired to a 6-speed transmission and is loaded with goodies to the brink.
The Yamaha MT-09 comes with traction control system with multiple riding modes and also gets ABS as standard. The bike comes with inverted telescopic front forks, while the rear gets a swingarm link-type suspension. Braking duties are handled by 298mm dual front and 245mm single rear disc brakes.
The MT-09 is just one of the many models Yamaha needs to bring to the country, while the real wait has been for the MT-03 street-fighter that is essentially based on the R3. In the commuter segment, Yamaha has already introduced the Saluto RX 110cc bike with sales for the model also scheduled to commence next month, while the Ray-ZR scooter showcased at the Auto Expo this year is also in the pipeline.
