Yamaha MT-01 (2005-current)
 


   
   
MT-01

The MT-01 puts a massive hi-tech, air-cooled 1,670cc V-twin engine in a minimalist aluminium sports frame - it's a sports riding revolution. This is a huge torque machine that can knife through the turns.

This, then, is 'torque sports': a massive engine in a nimble frame, with an exhaust note to invigorate the spirit and a sculpted style to stop the traffic.

There really is nothing like the MT-01, with its mighty engine delivering hammer-blow acceleration to push you on wherever you go. Couple this with cutting-edge suspension and brakes, and you get a powerful, confident and exhilarating ride.
