This is a clay model and is different from the actual product.
The new generation of MT models is centered around the MT-09, but each model has its own unique concept that stays faithful to the MT Series while branching into different riding preferences and uses.
This concept model expresses the potential for technologies to touch a rider’s heart, and every element needed to create Kodo (“Soul Beat”) was thoroughly considered in its creation, like the tangible beat and engine pulse produced by the explosive force of combustion, the powerful rhythm created by the changes in torque, and everything from the sound of the intake and exhaust to the beating of the rider’s heart.
The concept for the MT-01 was a “Soul Beat V-twin Sports” bike. A 1,670cc air-cooled OHC V-twin engine was mounted in a specially developed aluminum frame and created a pulse-filled ride that gave users a “Mega Torque” experience that went beyond the conventional ideas of what a sport bike could be.
The MT-09 is powered by an 846cc in-line 3-cylinder engine developed based on Yamaha’s “Crossplane Concept.” As the first entry in the new generation of MT Series models, its concepts of being a “Synchronized Performance Bike” and a “Master of Torque” were aimed at offering the rider the full pleasure of controlling the bike at will in the typical everyday speed range.
Under the concept of a “Sports Passion Motorcycle with Smart Value,” the MT-07 is a sport bike that offers an excellent balance of “the pure fun of riding” and outstanding cost performance. It was designed and engineered to deliver an “enjoyment of motorcycling that feels as natural as your favorite outfit of casual clothing” and “a more fulfilling lifestyle with a motorcycle,” and it mounts a 689cc in-line 2-cylinder engine.
The MT-09 TRACER is a sporty, agile and comfortable model developed around the concept of a “Sporty Multi-use Bike.” It takes the high potential of the MT-09’s engine and chassis package and revises it to suit a multitude of riding scenes and types of use.
Based on a “Street Cheetah” development concept, these models feature light, agile performance great for urban riding and an easy-to-use character for daily use packaged together with aggressive styling that exudes cheetah-like sleekness, speed and agility. They mount a liquid-cooled DOHC in-line 2-cylinder 8-valve fuel-injected engine.
Powered by a crossplane crankshaft engine, the MT-10 is the flagship of the MT Series and delivers torque and handling that lets the rider fully enjoy controlling the machine at will. Featuring versatility like the MT-09 TRACER, it is a uniquely Yamaha roadster model worthy of its label as “The King of MT.”
