Yamaha Motor Australia has confirmed pricing for its entire 2021 MT naked bike line-up, including the MT-09-based Tracer 9 GT sports tourer.

As previously reported, most models in the Yamaha MT family have been significantly updated for 2021, with new styling and a host of performance upgrades.

Pricing for the new Yamaha models is as follows:

Yamaha MT-03 (LAMS) – $7599 rideaway
Yamaha MT-07 (LAMS) – $12,399 rideaway
Yamaha MT-07 – $13,199 rideaway
Yamaha MT-09 – $15,249 rideaway
Yamaha MT-09SP – $17,299 rideaway
Yamaha Tracer 9 GT – $23,299 rideaway
Yamaha MT-10 – $21,949 rideaway
Yamaha MT-10SP – $25,199

As it does not receive major updates for 2021, the MT-10 is the first to hit showrooms, with the base variant available now from $21,949 rideaway, and the higher-spec MT-10SP to launch in March from $25,199.

The learner-approved MT-03 will also arrive in March, while the middleweight MT-07 will launch in both LAMS and full-power guises in April.

Specifically, the LAMS friendly MT-07LA will launch in Storm Fluo, Icon Blue and Tech Black colourways, while the full-power MT-07HO will be exclusively finished in Tech Black.

Distinguishing the new MT-07 is a minimalist LED headlight, new winglets and a newly-designed 14-litre fuel tank.

The new fuel tank uses injection-moulded plastic to reduce weight, and is said to have a particular texture to increase grip around the rider’s knee.

Other exterior changes include new fork covers, footpegs and engine covers.

Also launching in April, the 2021 Yamaha MT-09 takes on a similiar design language as the MT-07, but also benefits from a number of key performance changes.

Most notably, the triple-cylinder engine has grown from 847cc to 889cc, which translates to a 3kW power jump for a total output of 87.5kW and 93Nm.

The 2021 MT-09 has a unique stance thanks in part to a new aluminium frame and lighter wheels, while the inclusion of six-axis lean-angle-sensitive rider aids should significantly enhance the bike’s cornering manners.

Other updates extend to a new 3.5-inch TFT display with a bar-type tacho, a standard-fit up/down quickshifter, a radial front brake master cylinder, fully adjustable front forks (41mm travel) and adjustable rear suspension to match an all-new swingarm.

The highly anticipated Tracer 9 GT sports tourer, which is based on the new MT-09 platform, will be the last to arrive when it hits showrooms in June.

At the heart of the new Tracer 9 is an increased-capacity triple-cylinder engine, now measuring 890cc, with torque boosted by seven per cent to 93Nm, and peak power now at 87kW (+3kW).

That’s backed up by a new Deltabox chassis that positions the engine at a more upright angle, among other dimensional changes, while redesigned KYB adaptive suspension makes adjustments in real time to improve handling and comfort.

Thanks to the new chassis and a redesigned luggage system that allows three hard cases, the 2021 Yamaha Tracer 9 GT can handle a payload of 193 kilograms, a seven per cent improvement compared to its predecessor.

Like its sports-focussed siblings, the Tracer 9 gains a six-axis rider-assistance suite with advanced traction control, slide control, wheelie control, brake control, cruise control and four riding modes to suit varying road conditions.
