OK, we’ll be honest here and admit that we know nothing more about this bike other than the half-image that’s with this story.


We’ve been on the phone to various friends in the industry and they are as in the dark as we are – or, if they’re not, they are being very cagey about what they know.

So we’ve hit the moment where we do one of two things; pull or show. And after literally zero minutes of debate in the MoreBikes HQ, we’ve decided to show you this.

It was small on the cover of Japanese magazine Young Machine but tucked away is that title’s take on a Yamaha MT-09 version of the classic RD250/350 styled racebike-for-the-road.


Like we said, other than what we can see, we know no more. So it looks like a MT-09 with a pitch-forward riding position and RD-esque look, blacked-out engine too.

How true is it that this will appear? And when? Dunno, but as an image, we like this. Lots.
