Yamaha MT-01 Naked Motorcycle Bike

The Yamaha MT-01 is a bike sporting a naked look and this beautiful bike has a powerful engine. MT 01 has an awesome power from an air-cooled, 1670 cc V-twin engine that will generate a thundering torque of 150.3 Nm @ 3,750 rpm.

The Yamaha MT-01 review indicates that the bike comes with an exceptionally powerful V-twin 16-valve DOHC engine with a displacement of 1670cc. This bike has an aluminium sports frame and the engine can deliver power of 88 bhp at 4750 rpm along with peak torque of 150.3 Nm. The length of the bike is 2185mm and its width is 800mm and its height is 1105mm.

As per the Yamaha MT-01 review the bike has 6-speed gear feature. The bike has wet multiple disc clutch. The bike can produce huge amount of torque and this can deliver exceptional acceleration. The bike has Ohlin front as well as rear suspension and the 43mm Ohlin forks for the front are specifically designed to make the riding experience intimate and problem free.

The spring as well as damping settings on the Ohlin suspension has been set so as to match the needs of the engine. On the whole the suspension allows for increased stability and exceptional hold of the road. The bike also has powerful brake system and includes 310mm dual disc brakes for front along with 267mm single disc rear brake.

The bike has a top speed of 190 km/hr. The bike is huge and weighs around 243 kgs. The ground clearance of the bike is 145mm and it has a fuel tank limit of 15 litres. The wheelbase of the bike is around 1525mm.


  1. I bought this bike last week and it is totally iconic. The riding style has no comparison with 90% of that massive torque arriving at 2000 rpm.

    Some small corrections, it has 4 valves per cylinder for a total of 8. Top speed is 130 mph which is 207 km/h.

    Other points of interest is that it has twin spark plugs per cylinder, and magnificent front brakes with three pots on each side of each disc. It used to be two until 2007.

    The engine is a lot more powerful than the Harley Heritage or the Yamaha Warrior but also it revs a lot quicker because 20 kg has been shaved off it, reducing inertia lag - very few reviews mention the benefit of the weight loss to the moving parts.

    Remember the AC Cobra - that was an American engine married to an English chassis or body. Total success. Well this is a monster engine married to a racing chassis - completely different concept and great result.
