Yamaha MT-01 (2005 - 2012)

The Yamaha MT-01 is a 1700cc behemoth that was originally presented as a unique concept bike back in 1999. However, due to the extreme public interest, Yamaha has actually launched a serial production of the motorcycle in 2005.

With its unbelievable torque and horsepower, it is one of the most powerful naked bikes on the market. Unfortunately, there are not that many of them for sale and even if you can find one, you will have to pay a lot of money for it.

The Yamaha MT-01 is a 1670cc A2-friendly bike. It has a power output of 66 kW (90 bhp), which exceeds the 35 kW (47 bhp) limit needed for an A2 licence. The bike has to be restricted by at least 46.9% to become A2 licence compliant.

You will need a restrictor to ride the Yamaha MT-01 on an A2 motorbike licence. See the restrictor kits section to check out what restrictors are available for the Yamaha MT-01.
