2024 Yamaha MT-09 Video Review

Ten years after its debut in the U.S., the Yamaha MT-09 has been updated and refined for 2024 while maintaining its wild side that we enjoyed on the first generation. Updates on this generation are extensive, including new acoustic amplifier grilles, an improved transmission, more aggressive ergonomics, a stiffer chassis, updated suspension, new Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S23 tires, a new 5-inch TFT display, new switchgear, and a complete electronics package.

We rode the MT-09 in the Santa Cruz Mountains in California during Yamaha’s press launch and then rode the bike home after the launch, testing the MT-09 on a variety of roads. We came away impressed with the bike’s refinements and happy to see how this motorcycle has evolved in the past decade.
