This is a ultra realistic motorcycle paper model from yamaha motor. The MT-01 is a motorcycle made by Yamaha since 2005, available in Australia, Europe, India, Japan and North America. It has unusual features with a cruiser-style 1,670 cc (102 cu in) air-cooled, overhead valve V-twin engine but sportbike or naked bike style frame and suspension. The engine is derived from the Yamaha Warrior XV1700 and modified to suit application in the MT-01, while the forks and brakes are derived from the 2004 to 2005 Yamaha R1.
Originally unveiled as a concept motorcycle at the 1999 Tokyo Motor Show, strong public interest in the machine led Yamaha to develop a production model, which was released in 2005.The Motorcycle Design Association (MDA) awarded the MT-01 the Open Category award at the 2004 annual Motorcycle Design Awards at INTERMOT. Since its release, the MT-01 has remained largely unchanged.

- Stage 1: Two Akrapovič mufflers, heat shields, and solo seat kit
- Stage 2: Full Akrapovič exhaust system, heat shields, solo seat kit, and Stage 2 high performance ECU
- Stage 3: As above, and a velocity stack kit, valve spring set, stronger diaphragm clutch spring, gasket kit, high compression piston kit, high performance camshaft, and high performance ECU
