We're Looking For A Yamaha MT09

First produced in 2013 the Yamaha MT-09 was a replacement for the Fazer 8. The main competitors for this model are the Kawasaki Z900, Suzuki GSX 750 and the Triumph street triple. Powered by a 3-cylinder 847 cc liquid-cooled engine that is capable of producing 115 bhp, with 64.5 foot-pound to the rear wheel and a respectable 145mph on the open road. Classed as a middleweight naked bike, the MT 09 was one of Europe's best-selling motorcycles when it was first launched.

Yamaha fitted the lightweight bike with a low seat for every type of rider, whether it was taking you to work or a weekend trip away to the coast. The bike appeared to be great value for money at a brand new price of a smidge over £7.5k.

The MT-09 has 298mm diameter twin discs with four-piston monobloc callipers, and a rear disk 245mm single disk with a single piston. Average fuel consumption is roughly 48 mpg and a tank range of about 200 miles.

Yamaha MT09 Updates

Revised for 2017: Yamaha have made the bike Euro 4 compliant, fitted a new LED Headlight, LED daytime lights, and a new facelift LED taillight. A slipper clutch and a quickshifter are now standard.

Revised for 2021: The MT-09 is now Euro 5 compliant, with an increased capacity to 889cc. The horsepower has now increased to 117 hp. A new TFT dash and new single LED headlight has lifted the appearance. Yamaha also made the frame and swingarm lighter. New colour schemes are available: black, black and red or blue and grey.

Headlight update for 2021: The MT-09 is has been mocked for its headlight upon the latest re-launch. Bikers from all over the globe have been criticizing the latest headlight design. We had our doubts on first launch, but after seeing it in the flesh, it is better than you think. If you are in the market for a MT09, take a look before you make up your mind!

Why Sell Your Yamaha MT09 To Us?

Selling your bike to us is safe & secure. Selling your motorcycle to a private buyer can be risky. Many people have had their bikes stolen after allowing the buyer to test drive their motorbike and have them ride off and not return. The seller then has the problem of claiming on the dreaded insurance, as many insurers will not payout when the motorbikes are "stolen with keys".

We provide payment on collection. No cash. Payments are through bank transfer at the time of sale at your home.

We also provide a no fuss promise. As long as the bike is in the condition that has been stated on the valuation, we will perform a quick check, then we will pay the money directly into your bank account, no fuss, no further haggling. We buy any bike that is as agreed in the valuation.
