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.

General Comments:

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
