My favourite Japanese bike ever made.

Hopefully i will own one one day. There are legit ones about over here.

The magnificent Yamaha (what else) MT01. A bike i believe before it's time, 2005-2012.

Hugely expensive new, poor sales, and of course, now they've stopped making them, everybody wants one and they've become a cult bike.

Neither of these are std. In fact most these days are'nt...

Absolute tree puller of an engine in these .. Something like 110 lb/ft of torque at less than 4000 rpm .. And yep if you can find one they are strong money now ..

Not only USA. The first one I saw was in a bike shop in Tooting Bec. Designed by an American, Craig Vetter but was also on sale in the old home country too. I once met him in UK at the largest gather (in UK) of his bike, my mate had an unused example.

Yeah stock they knock out more torque just off idle than an R1 at full chat !

Stage 1 kit  has 130 Ib/ft. Stage 2 kit 150 Ib/ft and 150 bhp.

I missed a legit tatty one (needed cosmetic work, tyres etc) in CM last year for 250k which I thought was reasonable. I've seen nice legit ones for 330-360k.

Checked on e*ay , £6000 up for a mid 2000's in GB topping out at 8/9k for later models .. You never seem to see high milers of these and a lot of 'em have had a lot of money spent on additional parts and accessories which hints sometimes they are w/e or pleasure use only .. Strong bike though with a ripper of an engine ..

There's a guy in Skandinavia somewhere with a tuned stage 1 MT01 with in excess of 450,000 kms on it. The cases, ie bottom end, have never been apart.
