What we said then “Rad­i­cal styling, fab­u­lous de­tail­ing and a thun­der­ous sound – what a shame the per­for­mance is av­er­age.” What hap­pened next Like the B-king, the MT-01 was a long-muted con­cept that took six years to ar­rive. Sadly, when it even­tu­ally did ma­te­ri­alise it also failed to im­press. What’s hap­pen­ing now Rid­ers look­ing for a cool naked with soul are fight­ing over MT-01S and prices have al­most dou­bled in the last few years!
