Sadly, Yamaha has no plans of bringing the MT-09 to India but the vehicle has been put on sale in the European markets at a price of Rs. 5.3 lakh.

Yamaha is known to be one of the best performance motorcycle companies in the world. The Japanese automaker has not really shocked the world of late, with very few launches in the performance segment. While in India the company continues to focus on commuter motorcycles, overseas Yamaha has just launched the MT-09 naked motorcycle.

The Ninja 300 is a vast leap over the Ninja 250R.
