Last week over on my facebook page I put up the sneaky peak video of the new Yamaha MT-09 for 2021, and now we have the full specs so lets take a look!
So the first thing that is the most obvious is that headlight it looks like a single LED projector light bit odd looking but might grow on me.
The tank looks pretty cool and angular more so that the old model
The swingarm looks more beefy and the numberlate holder is back to the traditional type
The dash looks like a TFT screen with new options and the usual traction control stuff riding modes etc etc
Full new specs below
