Test Ride: Yamaha MT-01 – Canada Moto Guide

Test Ride: Yamaha MT-01 Yes Larry, WTF is that? WTF is that thing? That’s about the standard reaction I’d get whenever I’d pull up and park the Yamaha MT-01. Without question, it’s the most attention grabbing bike that I’ve ever ridden in all my years as a motorcycle journalist! The shock of seeing the MT-01 doesn’t lessen when you examine it more closely. What’s with the huge air-cooled pushrod engine mated to a modern aluminum beam frame? The high-spec fully adjustable forks and shock unit? Then there’s the two huge bazooka-like mufflers exit way high – above the turn signals high – and the snaking contortion of the exhausts is a pipe-builder’s nightmare. And yet ...

Yamaha YZR-M1 Contents 2002–2003 [ edit ] 2002 was the first season which allowed 990 cc 4-strokes to be raced alongside 500 cc 2-strokes. In a change from their V-4 YZR500. Yamaha designed the YZR-M1 (for Mission One) with an inline-4 engine, in order to have a longer swingarm and shorter wheelbase. Also, Yamaha wanted to preserve the superior handling of the YZR500, so the M1’s engine was designed to fit in a chassis similar to the YZR500’s. The M1 was outfitted with an electronic engine management system that controlled the engine braking endemic to 4-strokes. [ 1 ] [ 2 ] The M1 was test-ridden and developed by Max Biaggi. John Kocinski. Norihiko Fujiwara and Kyoji Namba ...

Road test: 2006 Yamaha MT-01 Driving

Road test: 2006 Yamaha MT-01 SMALL Yamaha calls the essence of its brand new MT-01 motorcycle “torque sport,” and it doesn’t take long to determine what that’s all about. The $15,599 MT-01 thumbs to life with a purposeful, lumpy grumble and, while it speaks softly at idle, it clearly carries a big stick. Banging away under the seat are two muscle car-sized pistons, each filling about 850 cubic centimetres of cylinder capacity. That adds up to an eye-opening 1,670 cc in this classic V-twin design. And that means torque — great dollops of urgent acceleration, available immediately upon cracking open the throttle. If the engine looks familiar, that’s because it has made a prior ...

Yamaha MT-03 for learners – Motorbike Writer

Yamaha MT-03 for learners Yamaha’s MT-03 is the latest in a deluge of quality learner bikes hitting the showrooms since the laws on learner bikes have become uniform across the country this year. It’s a small version of the big MT-01 “Kodo” style, but instead of a 1670cc V-twin, it’s powered by the torquey single-cylinder 600cc engine from the Tenere adventure bike. However, the MT-03 is a naked bike built for the urban landscape, rather than the country. Yamaha calls the MT-03 a “roadstermotard”. Whatever you call it, the bike is great value at $9999 (plus on-road costs). Until September 25, Yamaha is paying all on-road costs, making it an even more attractive option. From ...

2003 Yamaha MT01 concept, prototype, spy shots

– 2003 Yamaha MT01 2003 Yamaha MT01 – (read about the 2005 MT01 below) The MT01 was inspired by the traditional Japanese Tsuzumi drum which is very compact but produces a very strong and particular sound. GK Dynamics, the design company strongly linked with Yamaha motorcycle design since the middle of the fifties (in fact since the very first Yamaha, The YA1 Acatombo in 1954) arranged all the technical elements of the MT-01 in the minimum of space. Engine, chassis, even suspension and exhaust system, all was designed to fit very neatly together in the minimum of space. The design team wanted to great a bike that would keep your pulse racing even before you reached the open contryside ...
