Yamaha have upped the ante for the MT-10 with this at­trac­tive mar­riage of MT-10 and YZF-R1M, to cre­ate an SP ver­sion of their su­perb hy­per­naked. Fea­tur­ing Öh­lins Elec­tronic Rac­ing Sus­pen­sion (ERS), Thin Film Tran­sis­tor ( TFT) in­stru­men­ta­tion and a paintjob unique to the SP, this has to be a strong con­tender for the naked lu­natic of the year award in 2017.

The SP’S semi-ac­tive sus­pen­sion is con­trolled by a Sus­pen­sion Con­trol Unit (SCU), which cal­cu­lates op­ti­mal com­pres­sion and re­bound damp­ing set­tings for the rid­ing en­vi­ron­ment and con­di­tions, and ap­plies them in a con­tin­ual wave of mi­cro-ad­just­ments.

The SP only comes in one colour op­tion, Sil­ver Blue Car­bon, an­other nod to the YZF-R1M. It will ar­rive in deal­ers in Fe­bru­ary 2017.
