Yamaha MT09

Thoughts please. Anyone got or had one? I've had my Kawasaki ER6N for coming up 2 years. Lovely bike but I Just want that little bit more grrrrrrrrrr........... Would this be too much of a grrrrrrrrrr...... upgrade? I've heard they're a bit snatchy and like to go on one wheel a lot. Any other recommendations that will be a similar? I like being upright and go on long rides.

    A friend of mine has the XSR900...the cafe version of that bike. He’s done a lot to it...cartridges (not sure what brand), rear Ohlins, quickshifter, custom seat, bars, lighting front and rear, etc.. He can really haul the mail on that thing solo or two up, and it’s way more comfy than my R1.

    I’d say stock the main let down was the stock suspension...it was not fully adjustable...a great, well balanced platform though.

    I had a 2013 MT09 and it was a riot, the early throttle maps were snatchy but I didn't mind it too much, it was fixed with a better map for the updated versions. you won't be disappointed with one 👌💪
