Yamaha MT-09 sport-tourer coming?

Convincing 3D renderings show potential 2015 model

CONVINCING images of a possible Yamaha MT-09-based sport-tourer have appeared online.

The 3D renderings, posted on Indonesian website TMCblog, show a bike that appears to use the same chassis, swing arm, exhaust and three-cylinder engine as the Yamaha MT-09.

However, it uses longer front suspension and has a half-fairing, taller handlebars, bark busters and a new dual-seat.

It’s also lost the large air intake ducts from its naked sibling and appears to have a larger dash unit.

Could we be looking at an all-new 2015 model soon to appear at the INTERMOT or EICMA show?

More info to come soon.
