Yamaha announced the creation of a new middleweight sports bike positioned between the R7 and R1 by filing new trademark applications for the Yamaha R9 in a number of countries, including the United States, the Philippines, and Canada.


The new middle weight motorcycle will be a supersport based on the all new MT-09’s die-cast aluminium beam frame. Powertrain is anticipated to be a 3-cylinder cross-plane crankshaft engine displacing 889cc and generating approximately 120 PS and 93 NM at 7,000 rpm with linear torque delivery across the rev range. 

Nonetheless, Yamaha remains tight-lipped and has not made any official announcements, despite the fact that it is now processing the documentation in numerous nations.
