Yamaha's Mean Streeter

YAMAHA’S MT-09 naked roadster has made an impact in Australia since its release last year.

The looks are distinctive, and while not to everyone’s taste aesthetically, the 850cc inline three cylinder engine is a sweet unit, and the overall feel of the bike is pure fun, whether you’re out for a day ride or just commuting.

Yamaha has now released the bike in Europe in Street Tracker form, with a unique matt finish on the frame and bodywork, alloy front and side number boards, two tone seat and wider footpegs.

The understated look continues to the wheels, there’s knee pads to brace yourself, a short carbon front guard and billet handlebar risers.

We think it makes the ugly duckling MT-09 look awesome, and if you fit the accessory Akropovic high mount muffler it will look the ducks guts.

Unfortunately Yamaha Australia isn’t bringing the Street Tracker in as a stand alone model but you can buy as many of the factory accessories as you like to make your own version.

At $11,999 the MT-09 is great value, so it’s not hard to justify spending a bit more to make your Street Tracker.
