Yamaha MT-09 Gets a Fresh Look and Mechanical Improvements

Yamaha has introduced a range of updates to its popular middleweight naked motorcycle, the MT-09, for the 2024 model year.

  • New Bridgestone tyres and a Brembo master cylinder
  • The tank now has acoustic vents that 'amplify' the exhaust note.

 Angular Face and Redesigned Tank

The most noticeable change is the new angular face of the motorcycle. Yamaha has replaced the previous bare LED headlight unit with a sleeker and sharper design. The tank has also undergone a redesign, and Yamaha claims that it has made the riding position slightly sportier.

Hardware Improvements

The 2024 MT-09 benefits from hardware enhancements including a Brembo master cylinder and new Bridgestone Hypersport S23 tires. Unlike the earlier model, both the rider and pillion now have separate seats. Additionally, there is a USB-C type charger located under the seat for added convenience.

Acoustic Amplifier Grille

One of the unique features of the updated MT-09 is the addition of an acoustic amplifier grille on top of the fuel tank. This grille is designed to amplify and transmit the exhaust note to the rider enhancing the auditory experience while riding. Yamaha has implemented a similar feature on the current MT-10.

Availability in India

While the updated Yamaha MT-09 is expected to arrive in India at some point, Yamaha's current focus is on introducing its 300cc models in the Indian market by December.

The 2024 Yamaha MT-09 is an exciting addition to Yamaha's motorbike range thanks to these upgrades which seek to provide riders with a fresher and sportier design, upgraded hardware components, and an increased aural experience.
