Kawasaki Versys-x 300: Funky new all-rounder from Kawasaki plus saucy SP upgrades to Yamaha’s MT-10 and the all-new Suzuki GSX-R125.
THE FACTS O 158bhp O 210kg O Seat height 825mm
HIGHLIGHTS O Öhlins Electronic Racing Suspension (ERS) O Full colour TFT display O Quick Shift System (QSS)
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.
