Even though price of the motorcycle has been raised by Rs. 16,000, disappointingly, apart from new paint scheme and slight tweak in graphics, the 2019 MT 09 remains the same motorcycle as last year.

The notable and just about the only change remains the introduction of Night Fluo paint option, which is now available with the Yamaha Blu and Tech Black colour options. The MT-09 logo now comes with a red finish on the fuel tank.

The engine remains the same rev happy 847cc in-line three, producing 113 bhp at 10,000 rpm and 87.5 Nm of torque at 8,500 rpm.

Do not get me wrong, the MT 09 is a very capable motorcycle. However, I would have loved to see Yamaha tweak the engine slightly or at least update the styling to justify the price hike and the 2019 badge.

The good news is, Yamaha will launch the MT 15 next month.
