2020 Yamaha MT-09 gets new colourways

By thoriq, 03 June 2020

Looks like business and operations are back in full for Yamaha motorcycle assemblers and distributors Hong Leong Yamaha Motor (HLYM). Earlier today, the firm announced two new colourway choices for its popular MT-09 streetfighter.

We’ve seen the firm do this often with its entire line up, with the MT-09 being the latest to receive this treatment. You can now have this streetfighter offering dressed in either ‘Ice Fluo’ or the brand's signature blue colourway in this latest 2020MY guise.

Look closely and you’ll also note some subtle changes in the graphics accompanying the new hues this streetfighter is now dressed in. Apart from this, the MT-09’s specifications appears to be unchanged from before, which isn’t bad news entirely.

We’ve had the chance to try and tame this beastly-looking streetfighter not too long ago. It’s unique 849cc triple-cylinder heart’s offering of about 115bhp and 87.5Nm of twist makes it a force to be reckon with in its segment.

Apart from that, what’s also unchanged is its basic sales price of RM48,920 (excluding insurance and on-road costs). HLYM says that the 2020MY MT-09 streetfighter will be available through authorised dealers starting this month.
