Yamaha MT-01 Features
Engine Features - The New Yamaha MT-01's air-cooled, 4-stroke, V-type, 2-cylinder, 4-valve engine produces breathtaking levels of power. This massive engine unleashes a primal sound and aggressive acceleration as it serves up 150.3 Nm of torque at 3,750 rpm and 66.3 kW of power at 4,750 rpm. The MT-01 gives a wonderfully throaty and satisfying grunt whenever you raise the revs, it's the kind of sound that people ride bikes to hear. Its EXUP exhaust and twin titanium mufflers finish in a bold and dramatic upward swoop to complete the effect and naturally, it meets all EU3 low emissions standards. To handle the huge torque of the massive V-twin engine, Yamaha found the perfect gear ratio settings. This enhances the power pulse sensation, giving you a very special riding experience, and the best performance in each gear, making the bike run just as smoothly in town as on the open road.
Chassis Features - The New Yamaha MT-01's mighty engine powers a nimble sports chassis: an aluminium, die-cast, double cradle frame that allows the bike to slice through turns and manoeuvre with the dexterity of a far smaller machine. And its gracefully muscular styling will ensure heads turn wherever you go. In keeping with the MT-01's sporty shape and spectacular acceleration, the suspension system borrows from Yamaha's supersport programme. It has a truss-style swingarm and horizontally-mounted fully adjustable rear shocks, and 43 mm upside-down forks at the front. As befits a machine of this power, the MT-01 has high-specification YZF-R1 derived, 6-pot radial brakes, which have already established a reputation as some of the best around. Originally, these were designed for race and large-capacity supersport bikes, and the radial mounting gives enhanced braking and accurate rider feedback.
