Yamaha revealed a high-spec version of its MT-10 hypernaked
Yamaha unveiled its new MT-10 SP. Unlike the standard MT-10, this one features the Ohlins Electronic Racing Suspension and the full-color TFT already seen on the YZF R1M.
If the basic MT-10 is a naked R1, then the MT-10 SP is a naked R1M. In comes in the same color theme as the high-spec superbike and it offers the same electronic Ohlins suspension and the full-color dashboard.
Still, Yamaha didn’t put the sophisticated IMU unit found on R1 and R1M.
The new MT-10 series (both the standard and the SP version) now has a standard quick-shifter.
Other features already found on the basic MT-10: traction control system, assist & slipper clutch and, of course, ABS.
The cross plane engine is capable of the same 160 horsepower.
The MT-10 SP’s main rival is the BMW S1000R, which also got an update.
