    That's a good price! Non-ABS I assume.

    Is the 09 imported or assembled here?

    I hope that doesn't mean the 07 is not coming...

    Confirmed today at Yamaha Square, Chiang Mai.

    Another 'Scoop'; Yamaha MT-09-dsc01904.jpg

    MT-09 price will be 435,000 baht.
    It does not have ABS.
    It will be fully imported.
    Initially the 2 available colours will be grey (with blue wheels) and red, with other options becoming available later.

    The bike will be unveiled at Yamaha Square 6pm Saturday 8th March.
    For early orders delivery will occur 'end of May.'

    Saturday 8th 8-30am at Yam Square will be a registration of 400 baht for a Yamaha Group ride to Doi Inthanon. (not with the MT-09!)
    The fee includes food, park entrance and a T-shirt.

    Awaiting confirmation of a possible Test Ride day of the MT-09 and their 'Bolt' 950.

    (Whilst at Yam Square a rider arrived on his new 'Bolt' and said he was delighted with it, however he was experiencing a minor
    vibration from the front end. He was having a pillion seat fitted to his bike).

    I love the gold fork legs but I don't like the red tank... red is for girls...

    The grey one is a bit bland but the black one with the blue rims - my favorite!

    But I don't need 115 horses; the MT-07 would be enough for me - too bad that's not a triple!

    That should get a response if nothing else does!

    Tell that to all the CRF250L owners on this forum!

    Scooters are for girls, too! Admit it, you bought the red one because it don't come in pink!

    The FZ-09 is now in the Yamaha Square showroom; and it looks very nice indeed.

    ^ But it's not wide where the knees go.

    Love that black and blue, and the gold forks, of course.
