Yamaha MT-09

The slightly lower picture you can see the new Yamaha MT-09 in action. Now imagine that this winding road is in Croatia and whether you handle the new 3-cylinder roadster Yam.

 A dream? No, for a competition organized by the brand to forks allow two lucky people to win the test preview of the 850 MT-09 during a VIP trip.

The Yamaha dubbing “the dark side of Japan” in its teasers proved this week. The Japanese automaker has actually introduced the sporty roadster MT-09, with a 3-cylinder 850 cm3.

During extensive development program, the goal was to create a compact and lightweight three-cylinder capable of producing power and torque than the gross linear time, and a powerful and optimal diet. Much attention has also been paid to the quality of the sound of the intake and exhaust, as well as the creation of an elegant motor capable of exalting pride of ownership. Odds hypercarrées bore With dimensions and stroke 78 mm x 59.1 mm with a displacement of 847 cc, this new four-stroke, four valves, two overhead camshafts (OHC) has a compression ratio of 11.5: 1. The diameters of the intake valves and exhaust valves are respectively 31 mm and 25 mm. By adjusting the valves at an angle of 26.5 ° only, our engineers have been able to offer rooms with ultra-compact combustion process to ensure faster combustion and higher torque. Ceramic composite cylinders guarantee efficiency of heat dissipation and are offset relative to the crankshaft. Vilo at 120 ° The new 3-cylinder engine has stalled in a 120 ° crankshaft which provides an ignition sequence regular intervals, 0 °, 240 ° and 480 °, ensuring the linearity of torque available, and a feeling of optimal diet by the regularity of this couple. It is nonetheless equipped with a balancer. The compactness of the engine is such that we won 10 kg compared to the 4 cylinder block of the FZ8.Admission variable is associated with a 6-speed gearbox and managed by an electronic injection with multi-jet nozzle (12 holes) directly mounted in the cylinder head and spraying at the valve guide. The air intake is performed through cones of different lengths in order to optimize the curves of each cylinder. Measuring the first horn 102.88 mm long, 82.8 mm and the second the third 122.8 mm. These cones also induce a sport that provides sound associated with the exhaust, a unique sound. throttle control is managed via the electronic unit which acts on the butterflies to provide immediate and accurate response.

3 engine mapping The driver can choose between three engine maps: STD mode (standard) mode A and B mode The STD mode is designed for a wide range of road conditions and driving: it can benefit from a wide range of torque and optimum performance at all speeds. With the mode, the engine of the MT-09 provides maximum thrust. This setting allows a reduced response time to the acceleration at low and mid range for sporty driving. Finally, the B mode ensures a more progressive response adapted to city driving in adverse weather conditions or road in poor condition. Exhaust 3 in 1 MT-09 is equipped with an exhaust system 3 in 1 piece and a small silent short three bedroom house expansion. The massive silent emits a sound that emphasizes valuing the uniqueness of the bike, underneath the chassis, it contributes to mass centralization. The stainless steel exhaust manifolds are covered with treatment to prevent fading, rust and stains.  water short circuit design of the cooling system has received much creativity: MT-09 is characterized a very simplified cooling hoses available. By adjusting the position of the radiator, water pump and thermostat, our engineers were able to significantly reduce the amount of hose needed, which limits the weight and improves the appearance.



The novelty of model is its engine. The brand with the forks and is coupled to develop a 3-cylinder with linear performance, thanks to its cross-plane design, without compromising on the character of the latter. It is also the first multi-cylinder Yamaha choosing a design to offset the crankshaft cylinder.

When compared to other 4-cylinder engines of the brand, the new 3 legs weighs about 10 kg less than the FZ8 . This is partly due to this that the engineers were able to lower the weight of the beast to 171 kg dry version without ABS.

According to the manufacturer, the optimization of the injection system and the engine provides an average consumption of 5.8 liters per 100 km. With its 14-liter tank, the MT-09 and should offer a range of 240 km in the combined cycle.
