New bike reveal! Sounds a bit like "Empty" Doh!
Just me and my new bike, no real surprises really in choice as I'd already
reviewed it on a short test ride last year. So, talking a bit about
handling and forks etc and it ain't all bad news really. I think it handles
fine now after having ridden it for a few hours.
Yamaha MT-09 first ride impressions & review October 2013.
I take out a Yamaha MT-09 850cc triple out for a first ride and review. I
am pleasantly surprised at how good this bike is. Admittedly it's only my
view after about 40 minutes of riding, but if you walk away happy then it's
a good sign I reckon.
A few things I didn't mention on video is that the forks are a little soft
but still give plenty of feedback, plus the different engine modes can only
be switched when at a standstill. The brakes are good as you'd expect and
the gearbox being new is a little clunky, but that too is understandable
and would loosen up no doubt after a few 1000 miles.
Test bike supplied by lamba motorcycles of Carshalton, Surrey.
