New for 2018: Yamaha MT-09 SP

New MT-09 SP. Challenge the Darkness

The MT range is constantly evolving and moving ahead in the never-ending quest to give every motorcyclist the opportunity to get the most out of every ride. Coming just one year after the launch of the new MT-09 - that has been a huge sales success in its first season – the Yamaha Hyper Naked segment will be further strengthened by the launch of the new MT-09 SP.

New Öhlins remotely adjustable rear shock

In order to give Hyper Naked riders even greater possibilities to explore the outstanding performance of the 3-cylinder torque-rich crossplane engine, Yamaha's designers have specified an Öhlins rear shock absorber for the new MT-09 SP. This premium rear suspension system offers higher levels of adjustability via an easily accessible remote adjuster, allowing you to fine tune the settings and achieve class-leading handling performance and enhanced controllability.

New adjustable front forks

Both the MT-09 and MT-09 SP are fitted with Kayaba front forks. The standard MT-09 has adjustable front forks where one leg is for rebound and the other is for compression. The MT-09 SP has adjustable front forks where both legs can be adjusted for rebound and compression damping, and this difference allows more fine-tuning of the front suspension settings.

Special MT-10 SP style colour scheme

To complement its premium specification, the MT-09 SP is finished in an exclusive Silver Blu Carbon colour scheme that matches the design featured on the MT-10 SP.

To complete the exclusive SP look the lightweight 10-spoke wheels are finished in blue - just like the MT-10 SP - and the wheels feature MT-09 SP graphics. The SP theme is continued in the seat, which features distinctive blue stitching that complements the tank and wheels.

Black handlebars, levers and crown

The high quality feel and exclusive looks of the MT-09 SP are complemented by the use of black handlebars, black control levers and a black handlebar crown.

Special LCD instrument panel

The MT-09 SP's special LCD instrument panel displays white information against a black background, giving higher levels of clarity during daytime riding.
