Engine Features

The new MT-09 Yamaha 2022 Hyper Naked Bike has a downdraft intake and a newly built 890cc liquid-cooled three-cylinder, DOHC, four-valve-per-cylinder fuel-injected (YCC-T) engine. This bike has a bore stroke of 78 mm, 62.1 mm, and a compression ratio of 11.5:1. It produces a lot of torque with a lot of power. Almost every major engine component has been rebuilt to be lighter from the pistons and connecting rods through the crankshaft, camshafts and crankcase. The combination of greater combustion efficiency and less weight resulted in an 11% increase in fuel efficiency from 44 to 49 miles per gallon. The fuel distribution system has undergone a comprehensive overhaul. The fuel injectors on previous MT-09s were directly attached to the cylinder head but the MT-09’s fuel injectors are now connected to the throttle valve side of the throttle body.

The brand new injectors now spray at the back of the intake valve heads to increase fuel atomization and reduce fuel particle adherence to the port walls resulting in excellent combustion efficiency. The throttle valve is controlled by the Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) electronic technology, extensively tested on both YZF and MT-09 models. The forged pistons are light and provide for smooth, high-revving power. To achieve unrivaled manufacturing accuracy, the forged connecting rods are created utilizing the fracture-split process. The new big-end ring of the connecting rod is purposely shattered and then reunited. When the rods are fastened together around the crankshaft, they form a set of exactly matching halves resulting in a considerably more precise mating surface. The three-cylinder bores of the CP3 engine are mounted front and to the exhaust side.

The direct-plated ceramic-composite cylinder bores provide superior heat dissipation and reduced friction resulting in more power and better fuel economy. The MT-09’s redesigned muffler reduces overall weight and mass centralization while producing a low-frequency exhaust note at low speeds. The exhaust tailpipes are symmetrical from left to right, directing the sound pressure to both sides of the machine and producing an exhaust note that gives the rider a sense of torque. The recently designed stainless steel header pipes are given a different shape and length for a good pulse effect. When the rider closes and opens the throttle, the new intake system matches the new engine and gives a linear response. The three intake ducts also provide an excellent mid-range and high-rpm engine sound. The intake sounds produced by these ducts are created with diverse cross-sections and lengths so that they all resonate beautifully at distinct wavelength ranges.

Simultaneously, the sound pressure has been adjusted to produce an excellent sound in the mid-and high-rpm range. As a result, an air cleaner box with good intake efficiency and a beautiful sound that improves the sensation of acceleration has been created. The Assist and Slipper (A&S) clutch on the MT-09 has been designed to work optimally with the new engine resulting in a lighter clutch lever pull and smoother chassis behavior during downshifts. The transmission ratios have been tweaked, with first and second gear ratios slightly higher than earlier models. The transmission, in conjunction with the crankshaft’s increased moment of inertia and the fuel injection settings that provide the right balance of powerful torque and ease of use from acceleration to stopping.

Chassis/Suspension Features

The new MT-09 Yamaha 2022 Hyper Naked Bike has a new engine, chassis and bodywork all integrate weight-saving innovations resulting in a vehicle that is eight pounds lighter than the previous MT-09. The MT-09 is built around a newly created lightweight aluminum frame that has been fine-tuned to highlight the MT’s distinctive “agility.” The balance of longitudinal, torsional, and lateral has also been increased to ensure straight-line stability and handling performance. Most importantly, the lateral stiffness has been enhanced by almost 50% for improved straight-line stability. Yamaha’s latest controlled filling (CF) die casting process is used to create the all-new frame which adds to the MT-09’s less weight. The MT-09 uses a controlled filling aluminum die-cast subframe to replace the previous model’s steel subframe which decreases weight and contributes to the model’s trademark feeling of agility.

The redesigned MT-09 swingarm uses a welded box shape of aluminum plate to produce excellent stiffness while still being 250g lighter than previous models. The swingarm pivot structure on the MT-09 is connected to the frame from the outside, as opposed to the previous model’s inverted design. The revised design keeps the MT-09’s slim feel while still giving superb straight-line stability at high speeds and increased tuning stability, thanks to modifications to the chassis’ rigidity and extensive engineering of the forms of sections and components around the seat. Lightweight wheels are used on the MT-09. These wheels are made using Yamaha’s patented spin forging technique for excellent handling. These wheels contribute significantly to the MT-09’s agile handling nature with an 11 percent reduction in inertia momentum in the rear.

The MT-09’s state-of-the-art brake has a radial Nissin master cylinder for the front brake to support more spirited sporty riding. The master cylinder piston rotates in the same direction as the brake lever motion resulting in a more linear delivery of hydraulic pressure and improved controllability. The MT-09 Yamaha 2022 Hyper Naked Bike is the second Yamaha model to include this technology which can be controlled with only a fingertip after the YZF-R1.

The riding position was created with riders of all shapes and sizes in mind. Riders may adjust the handlebars and footpegs to two different settings that allow them to choose a comfortable position the instant they get on the bike. The handlebar clamps can be replaced 10mm forward, and the footpeg mounts can be raised 14mm higher and 4mm rearward. The MT-09 has a KYB® inverted front fork with tuned settings to match the character of the new compact frame. These settings restrict pitch movement significantly, but they make it easier for the user to feel the suspension in action while riding. Preload and rebound damping are adjustable on both the front and rear suspensions and compression is adjustable on the front fork.
