2017 MT-09 launch update: First ride

  • By cannonball

As well as its aggressive new styling, Yamaha have upgraded the suspension on the 2017 MT-09 front and rear, and the big news is that it’s a massive improvement.

We spent yesterday riding the 2017 model around the Sierra Tranmuntana mountains in Mallorca, in a mixture of cold and wet, and dry and warm conditions, and the 115bhp 847cc triple-cylinder machine took it all in its stride. 

Gone is the vague, harsh front end and comedically under-damper rear, and in its place is a plush-feeling ride that allows you to better exploit the bike’s addictively strong acceleration and any-gear torque.
