2017 Yamaha MT-09 & MT-10 SP Officially Unveiled

2017 Yamaha MT-09 & MT-10 SP Officially Unveiled Impressive Updates for 2017 Yamaha MT-09 Yamaha MT-09 is internationally 3 years old and needed an appreciable change in its overall looks and performance to compete against others in the street motorcycle segment. The most effective change on MT-09 is the twin front headlights, inspired from the bigger Yamaha MT-10. They make it look much more mean and sharply styled than ever. 


The rear end has even witnessed changes which are more towards the modern street bike styling. The frame has been reduced by 30 mm while the number plate now comes on the single arm bolted to the swing-arm on the left side. The seat height has been raised by 5 mm while flatter seats provide a better saddle than before. 


The motorcycle carries some mechanical changes in the form of Assist & Slip Clutch, along with 20 percent lighter clutch than the on-going model. Yamaha's Quick shift system also comes standard, leaving the clutch only useful while downshifting the gears. The front forks are now 41 mm with adjustable compression damping and rebound adjustment while the rear mono-shock is said to be untouched from the earlier configuration. 


MT-09 is powered by a 847cc, three-cylinder engine producing 113.4 BHP and 87.5 Nm of torque. It comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox and retails in India at INR 10,20,000 for the current version. Inclusion of LED lights and other premium components will surely bring a bigger tag for the 2017 version. Yamaha may soon launch the updated version in India. Know More (2016 Indian Model) 


New Yamaha MT-10 SP Unveiled Yamaha MT-10 was first showcased in 2015 and on its first day of public appearance, it simply made everyone crazy for it. It felt more like an alien technology turned motorcycle (like the movie, Transformers) and appealed nearly every segment of motorcycle lovers with its versatile nature.


The motorcycle was strictly based on the YZF-R1 while the one introduced here is much more than simply the R1. MT-10 SP is based on YZF-R1M, providing the naked street machine with Ohlins Electronic Racing Suspension, TFT display and a unique paint job. The system offers optimal control and support on various surfaces by automatically detecting everything and fulfilling the need of the rider. 


Rider even have the option of selecting light or dark backgrounds on the colored TFT as per the riding conditions. The motorcycle now carries the Yamaha Quick Shift System as standard and may get available with the dealers internationally in February 2017. No hints for the Indian launch of MT-10 from Yamaha.
