Yamaha’s Masters of Torque Deliver the Dark Side of Japan for 2020
Introduction of MT-Series Motorcycle Models Completes Hyper Naked Lineup

MARIETTA, Ga. – November 3, 2019 – Expanding on last month’s introduction of the all-new entry-level MT-03 Hyper Naked motorcycle, Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA, today introduced the balance ofi its MT (Master of Torque) lineup for 2020. The lightweight and torque-inspired twin-cylinder MT-07, the agile-handling triple-cylinder MT-09, and the potent four-cylinder MT-10 will offer performance and design inspired by the Dark Side of Japan when they arrive at Yamaha dealers this month.

The Dark Side of Japan

Many see Japan as a traditional and respectful society where conformity is the norm, but behind this stereotypical image lies a vibrant sub-culture where new fashions and ideas are constantly emerging. These same creative forces that drive the darker and unconventional side have inspired and shaped the unique MT motorcycles, giving every rider the chance to experience thrilling torque, outstanding agility and provocative design from the Dark Side of Japan.
