Yamaha MT-09 first ride!

Yamaha's eagerly awaited new three-cylinder roadster is currently being put through its paces by MCN Senior Road Tester Michael Neeves. Here are his first impressions: "We're here at the world launch of the new £6799, three-cylinder, 847cc Yamaha MT-09 in Croatia. "On paper the new Yamaha is an exciting prospect.

you guys are missing the point

please stop comparing it to the triumph st, yes its a 3 cylinder bike but really that's about it , this bike looks and obviously feels a lot different, for a start there is a more motard look to the mt even the seating position is more upright, which could explain the "vagueness" if your used to sports bikes, for me I bet I would find this planted as I come from a dirt bike off road back ground . I like the high looking front and I bet its great for wheelies which is important for me, when I look at a bike the first thing I think is will it be nice to wheelie and flick about, I really like the styling I think it looks a comfortable  position.

Stop kidding yourselves

 Just bite the bullet, stump up the extra cash and buy a Brutale 800, you know it makes sense :-D

Try it-it`s great fun!

 i have been riding this bike also in split and for my opinion it is really a stunning bike,very close to the streety.it`s true,the riding position is closer to a supermoto,but this position is very comfortable and gives you a very god controll.i was riding in the a-mod and for me it was perfect,even in 4te gear you can wheelie it easy.the engine is great fun,smooth and more torque then a streety.go and try it and you will leave the place with a big smile!

Where's Rose?

 Why are you messing around with a rank amateur like Neevsy, when the greatest rider the world has ever known,(well, in his head anyway) Steve Rose, is available...

Why the MT moniker ?

Looks more like an FZ than an MT
