Photoshoot of the Week: July 6th-12th 2020 – Slick & Yamaha MT-09

In case you didn´t know, the term MT that defines the Yamaha line of bikes comes from “Masters of Torque”. It is entirely accurate since every forum you enter that has the name of this bike series in it says precisely that. Moreover, the massive torque of these bikes is one of the main reasons people buy them. Among the other naked bikes the Yamaha MT 09 is the line’s sweet spot: not as big as the Yamaha MT 10 or as small as the MT 07, this motorcycle is not a big and heavy bike as you would expect due to its motor and capabilities. Besides this motorcycle is really powerful: it is a driver-centric design that makes it very comfortable. The differences with the smaller Yamaha MT 07 in size are almost not distinguishable: the looks are menacing, with modern, daring lines. Besides at the first crack of the throttle, the MT-09 springs to life, but the corks truly start flying around 5k rpm, where the MT’s claimed 113 horsepower at 10,000 rpm and 65 ft-lbs of torque at 8500 rpm begin to bare its teeth.
The Yamaha MT 09 is an excellent bike for those looking for a one-for-all ride. Besides making a flawless work on the streets, the Yamaha MT 09 works great on the open roads. So I figured what a better place than Arizona to ride the Yamaha Mt-09? From iconic saguaros and blustery monsoons to spring wildflowers and one-of-a-kind wildlife, Arizona is synonymous with hot deserts and wild, wide, open spaces, the perfect place for fast riders like Southern American bikergirl published model Slick. Like many bikers, she appreciates motorcycles as a form of commuter transportation, but of course she’s also not excited about the prospect of using our bikes solely to weave through traffic. Sometimes, it’s relaxing and even cathartic to push the limits on the open road: the result is an absolute blast of adrenaline going up and down the spine. What can I say, seeing is believing! I mean, try it for yourself, but also if you see live the beautiful motorgirl Slick speeding up on her Yamaha MT-07 that’s a real strong emotion too!

From the throaty exhaust note of the torquey 847cc engine to the aggressive, beady-eyed stare of the LED headlight, the 2020 Yamaha MT-09 is a tantalizing triple that is easily distinguishable on the road.
Originally named the FZ-09, its history begins in 2014 where it was one of the “first in a wave of naked bikes from the manufacturers that finally gained acceptance with the buying public in the USA.”
Since 2017, all MT-09’s have had fully adjustable suspension, traction control, dual-zone ABS, a slipper clutch, and LED highlights. As well, compared to many other naked sport bikes, the MT-09 features a double-sided rear swingarm. In 2019, the FZ was renamed as the MT-09 to align with Yamaha’s global market, and that is how it remains for 2020.
Powered by an exciting 847 cc three-cylinder engine, the popular naked sport roadster features fully adjustable suspension, three riding modes, traction control, slipper clutch, standard ABS and aggressive “twin eye” LED headlights. Experience the thrill of riding every time you hit the road. The MT-09’s liquid-cooled four-stroke, 847 cc inline three-cylinder fuel-injected engine features a downdraft intake and The engine has been tuned to provide plenty of low-to-mid-range torque with strong yet linear throttle response.
The MT-09 features an aggressively styled twin-eye headlight assembly that gives this best-selling naked sport a more menacing look. The slanting dual headlights are equipped with four LED bulbs, accompanied by dual LED positioning lights.
Summing it up: the Yamaha MT-09 is an interesting motorcycle as it toes the line between a naked sport and a streetfighter-style body and power. Using a crossplane inline 3 engine, it produces approximately 115 HP at the crank and has plenty of low RPM and mid-range grunt to get it going and to pull cleanly and confidently out of corners.
