AM Racing: Yamaha MT-01 Turbo


AMR's Yamaha MT-01 Turbo packs twice as much horsepower as the stock bike!

The Sweden-based AM Racing have prepared this turbocharged Yamaha MT-01, which packs 160 horsepower (measured at the rear wheel) and 230Nm of torque. When you consider the fact that a stock MT-01 has only 86bhp and 156Nm of torque, the turbocharged bike’s numbers begin to look very impressive…

AM Racing’s Stage 2 kit for the MT-01 includes a Mitsubishi turbocharger, piggy-back computer (which controls boost), oil system for turbo with external oil pump, water/air intercooler, an extra injector mounted on the intake pipe, fuel pressure regulator, aftermarket air-filter, steel-braided oil and water hoses and an upgraded clutch.

On the MT-01 Turbo here, the stock exhaust system has been replaced with a non-silenced exhaust from the turbo, and according to AMR, the noise levels, though a bit high, suit the bike’s appearance.

The Stage 2 turbo kit costs 56,000 SEK, which is about US$8,600. For more details, visit the AM Racing website here. In the meanwhile, we wonder what these guys would do with a V-Max. A 400bhp, twin-turbo V-Max, anyone...?
