2019 Yamaha MT-09 comes from the same 847 cc in-line three-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine tuned to produce 113 bhp at 10,000 rpm and 87.5 Nm of peak torque at 8500 rpm. The motor is paired with a 6-speed gearbox and gets the Quick Shift System (QSS) for faster up shifts. The bike also comes with ABS and traction control system along with a assist and slipper clutch. The MT-09 gets 41 mm USD forks up front and a monoshock unit at the rear, both of which are adjustable. Braking performance comes from 298 mm dual discs up front and a 245 mm single disc at the rear. The bike's kerb weight stands at 193 kg.
The 2019 Yamaha MT-09 comes in the Night Fluo paint option that is now available with the Yamaha Blue and Tech Black colour options. The MT-09 logo now comes with a red finish on the fuel tank. Barring the new colour scheme, there aren't any styling changes on the motorcycle, which continues to get the alien-inspired twin-pod LED headlamps, slender yet sharp 14 litre fuel tank and split seats. The red painted alloy wheels create a nice contrast against the colours on the bike.
