Yamaha MT-09 CKD 03

As promised, Hong Leong Yamaha Motor (HLYM) has introduced the locally assembled version of the new Yamaha MT-09. The three-cylinder powered street bike becomes the second big bike model to be assembled at the company’s Sungai Buloh facility after the XJ series, which consists of the XJ6, XJ6 Diversion and the newly-launched XJ6 Diversion F.

No changes in terms of mechanical and specification for the CKD MT-09, meaning the naked bike gets a healthy 113 hp at 10,000 rpm and 87.5 Nm of torque at 8,500 rpm from the same 850 cc liquid-cooled, three-cylinder mill. Other key features include Yamaha’s YCC-T ride-by-wire system that comes together with a D-mode throttle mapping with three engine settings.

Compared to the CBU version, which is priced from RM54,000, the locally assembled MT-09 can be yours starting from an exciting price tag of RM45,000 excluding road tax, insurance and number plate. It is available in two colours – Deep Armor (Violet) and Blazing Orange – and will be available at selected Yamaha dealerships nationwide starting from mid-December.
