Yamaha originally announced the MT-09 in June 2013, but the model attracted massive attention at EICMA last night, when it was ridden on stage by Valentino Rossi!
The MT-09 Street Rally is a ‘variation model’ with a range of special body components, including a headlight cover, fuel tank shrouds, side number plates, wind deflector and knuckle guards. The MT-09 Street Rally also comes with a slim and flat seat as well as motard type footrests and an improved foot grip. The wind deflector and headlight cover allow higher speed riding, while the higher flat seat provides a different riding position for a more motard type cornering style.
The model is available from early 2014, but you can read more about the MT-09 here.
