2005 Yamaha MT01 from South Africa
There is nothing like it!
Bike recalled to replace the throttle position sensor in the fuel injection system.
Problem with a loose connection in the wiring harness.
This is a real twist and go motorcycle. There is so much torque, the gearbox is almost not necessary.
The motor pulls cleanly from 1200 rpm upwards, but can be a bit thirsty if pushed hard on the highway.
I use it as a commuter, and even in the heat of our summer, it seem to keep its cool.
Yamaha did a phase 1 conversion on the bike, which includes an Acropivic exhaust system. The sound is awesome, loud and deep.
It attracts a lot of attention going or standing. The styling is quite uniqe and reminds of a Blue Wildebeest, huge chest and small rear.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
