Brembo radial master cylinder: linear power, total control
In order to match the MT-09’s high torque and acceleration, stopping power is enhanced by a new Brembo radial master cylinder, which moves in the same direction as the brake lever resulting in a linear relationship between rider input and hydraulic brake pressure to the dual front brake discs for excellent controllability.
Plus a newly designed adjustable clutch lever offers the rider further control when engaging the clutch.
Fully adjustable front suspension and Bridgestone S23 tyres
The MT-09’s 41mm KYB® front forks are fully adjustable for preload, compression and re-bound damping and now feature revised factory settings to achieve excellent stability.
The rear suspension linkage design has been modified and the adjustable KYB® rear shock set to allow for a more dynamic feeling in cornering, while new Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S23 M tyres offer high grip and light handling.
5in TFT full colour screen
The 2024 MT-09 is equipped with a range of next level technology to enhance the overall package and riding experience while remaining true to the Dark Side of Japan concept many have come to love.
An all-new, horizontally mounted 5in TFT full colour screen offers the rider an attractive new interface with the choice of four different themes to suit a range of different riding experiences.
Smartphone connectivity and navigation
For an enriched riding experience, connectivity comes as standard on the MT-09 via a built-in Communication Control Unit (CCU) meaning riders can stay connected while riding by linking their smartphone with their machine via the free MyRide app. As well as seeing call and message notifications on the 5in TFT display, a new dimension is added to the ride by the possibility of taking calls and listening to music via a Bluetooth headset*. Once connected, riders can also make use of the free Garmin StreetCross navigation system, which will display on the 5in TFT dashboard.
Riders can also personalise the TFT display even further by sending images from their smartphone via the MyRide app using the Information Transfer feature.
There is also the option to provide power to external devices by the new under-seat USB Type C socket.

Intuitive new switchgear
New integrated handlebar switch assemblies enable the rider to operate the wider range of functions of the new MT-09, including smartphone connectivity, navigation and riding modes as well as navigating the different menu options.
Featuring a clear, logical and simple design – the shape, movement and ergonomic layout of the buttons have been designed with intuitive movement in mind, meaning riders can cycle through the various different functions with ease.
Customisable riding modes with Yamaha Ride Control settings
New for 2024, MT-09 riders can now further customise their riding experience via the Yamaha Ride Control (YRC) settings, which allow the rider to select engine power characteristics and the level of electronic intervention to suit their preferences and road conditions.
Three integrated riding modes, Sport, Street and Rain featuring factory settings with different intervention levels to suit various conditions are complemented by the option to pre-set two Custom modes.
This allows the creation of specific YRC settings to suit certain situations (weather, location etc.) by altering the level of electronic support such as Power (PWR), Slide Control System (SCS), Traction Control System (TCS) and LIF (Lift Control) - all of which can be set directly through the MT-09’s dashboard or using a smartphone via the MyRide app.
These personalised settings can be sent to the machine from the rider’s smartphone and cycled between with ease while riding using the all-new switchgear.
