2016 Intermot Motorcycle Show: Yamaha Unveils Hyper-Naked MT-10 SP

Written By:

Japanese manufacturer Yamaha unveiled MT-10 SP at Intermot 2016. The new model is a blend of the naked MT-10 and superbike YZF-R1M. This combination makes it a perfect mile-muncher.

The hyper-naked model will be equipped with Ohlins Electronic Racing Suspension (ERS), TFT instrumentation. Yamaha has also given the new motorcycle a unique paint job. So, now we have a strong contender for the naked segment crown in 2017.

The new model has SP's semi-active electronic suspension which is controlled by a Suspension Control Unit (SCU). The system analyses data from a number sensors that monitor suspension action and rider inputs.

The settings of the SCU are accessed via the switchgear. TFT display is borrowed from the R1 superbike. Now, the rider can also select backgrounds to suit day/night or personal preference.

As we said, there is only one colour option, a combination of silver/blue/carbon. The motorcycle will be expected to hit the roads in February 2017.

Also, the standard 2017 Mt-10 will also get a new Quick Shift System (QSS) as standard. Engine mapping is also remapped for enhanced throttle response throughout the rev range. This variant will also be available from February.
