This is the 2017/2018 MT-09 fresh from the factory with lots of changes. The restyled face is headlined by an aggressive LED twin eye headlight, a departure from the more traditional single light unit of the original.
Each of the slanted twin-eye headlights is equipped with two LED bulbs, and the bold new unit matches the full width of the fork tubes, rather than sitting between them to reinforce its menacing stance. A pair of slim running lights sit below the headlights, complimented by a pair of sharp-looking winglets.
The multi-function full LCD dash is unchanged, but the instruments are moved closer to the headlight assembly, and the indicators have been relocated next to the radiator.
The tail end is a striking departure, too. The upwardly slanted subframe has been shortened by 30mm, and houses an integrated three-dimensional LED taillight. The new seat is flatter, 5mm higher than before, and claimed to offer better support.
That stubby tail unit also ditches the conventional numberplate hanger, which is now mounted on an arm that bolts to the swingarm.
Beyond aesthetics, the new Nine gets the Assist & Slip (A&S) clutch, delivering more precise engagement, while acting as a slipper clutch under negative load. Lever action is reduced by a claimed 20%, making town work lighter on your left hand.
And you won't need to worry about the lever at all on upshifts, as Yamahas quick shift system (QSS) is fitted as standard. It will be slick and smooth if the MT10'S is a good indicator.
The 2017 model also gets an uprated 41mm fork, with adjustable compression damping in the left fork, rebound adjustment in the right.
