Yamaha has revealed the completely overhauled MT-09 streetfighter for 2021. The supernaked comes heavily reworked from inside out, making it sharper, lighter and more powerful than the model it replaces.

The latest model gets a redesigned bodywork. The twin beam headlamps have been replaced by a single unit featuring LED DRLs on the either side. The front end looks narrower and more aerodynamic. The tank panels features a sharper design and there is a new seat to complement updated panels. The tail-end, more or less, remains relatively unchanged.
