Yamaha has introduced another price hike for MT-09 in India, and the brand is now offering the powerful street machine for INR 10,55,354. The ex-showroom price is approximately INR 16,000 higher than the value that was charged earlier for this model. They have not mentioned any specific reason for this price hike, like the earlier one, when the MT-09 got a price hike of INR 84,000 in September 2018.

The motorcycle rivals Kawasaki Z900, Triumph Street Triple and Suzuki GSX-S750 in its segment. Out of all the rivals, only Triumph Street Triple RS is priced higher than the Yamaha MT-09, that too because of the premium suspension parts and a more powerful engine tune.

A personal choice for sure, the design of both the bikes is not what one expects from an everyday machine. Yamaha MT-09 looks aggressive with its four projector fascia. The styling is derived from the flagship MT-10 for sure. It looks impressive and perfectly proportionate from every angle. Triumph Street Triple RS is slightly unique in itself, carrying signature twin headlights at the front and gull wing sing arm at the back. It is not loved much for its design but still, few buyers will find it more impressive than anything else in this segment.
