Starting with TDM machines manufactured in 2001, Yamaha decided to upgrade the displacement of the parallel engine. Now sporting an 897cc displacement, the long-standing TDM only got better and a tad more powerful, bringing even more joy to the riders.

The bike retained its dual-sport character, being an excellent commuter, but at the same time a very nifty tourer, especially when equipped with a good luggage system. With solid power in the high rev range, the engine delivers plenty of low-end torque for uphill strides and even trail riding. Truly a jack-of-all-trades, the 2001 TDM 900 is one under-liter machine which gets the job done.
