Yamaha has updated its top of the line streetfighter in India, the MT-09. However, the only ‘new’ thing here is the price tag and a white paint job. Priced at Rs 10.55 lakh (ex-showroom), the 2019 MT-09 is now Rs 16,000 more expensive than the older model. Other than the mild cosmetic update, the bike remains unchanged both in terms of features and mechanicals.

This isn’t a deal breaker considering the Yamaha MT-09 is one of the most feature-packed streetfighters in its segment. It gets top-shelf electronics such as a slipper clutch, ride-by-wire throttle, three rider modes, quick shifter, LED headlamps, multi-level traction control and a fully digital instrument cluster.

Powering the motorcycle is the same 847cc, 3-cylinder, 4-stroke engine that produces 115PS of power and 87.5Nm of torque. It’s closest competition, the Kawasaki Z900 for instance, produces 125PS of power and 98.6Nm of torque from its 948cc, inline-four engine. Underpinnings too remain unchanged with USD forks at the front and a swingarm monoshock unit at the rear. Braking hardware consists of 298mm twin discs at the front and a 245mm disc at the rear.

The 2019 Yamaha MT-09 goes up against the Triumph Street Triple RS (Rs 11.13 lakh) and the Kawasaki Z900 (Rs 7.68 lakh) (both, ex-showroom India).
