MT-09 wins design award

Yamaha triple takes iF Design Award 2014

YAMAHA’S MT-09 has been handed the iF Design Award 2014 by the iF International Forum Design in Hannover.

Kazumasa Sasanami, Chief of the design development department at GK Dynamics where the MT-09 was designed, said:

"Our entire development team is thrilled and very proud that the MT-09 has received one of the world's most prestigious design prizes, the iF design award. We worked very hard to achieve a motorcycle that incorporates a sporty feeling during everyday use by setting a speed range at a lower, more enjoyable level, and a nimble riding position that allows greater freedom of movement.

"In order to compress a superior riding performance into an extremely compact body, the development team worked as one to create a fresh new, highly-rated type of styling. We will continue to devote ourselves to creating attractive designs the rider can enjoy in their everyday riding."
