If Yamaha’s YZF-R1 is getting on a bit, having not had a major facelift since 2009, its supersport R6 brother is now positively ancient. Its last notable tweak was revealed in 2007 when the ’08-spec bike was shown, but the basic design dates back to the 2006 model, which was first unveiled to the world in late 2005. So it’s ...

Yamaha MT-09: Beyond the hype

MCN, 08 July 2013 08:00

Completely new large capacity bikes are rare in these austere times, and for one to be formed around a brand new engine – which so firmly breaks with the maker’s recent tradition – is even more unusual.

Yamaha’s ‘Dark Side’

Andy Davidson, 31 May 2013 12:12

Last year’s Cologne Motorcycle Show saw Yamaha make bold claims about what we could expect from them in the near future. The firm unveiled a slightly bizarre wire and engine ‘sculpture’ centred around an all-new, three-cylinder engine, dubbed the ‘P3’. Yamaha hasn’t given much away about the new motor, but they are very clear about its significance – openly admitting ...
