‘A win­ner, if the price is right’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

For the first time an MT- 09 could prop­erly chal­lenge the Street Triple, thanks to the new Öh­lins sus­pen­sion on this new SP model. The three-cylin­der mo­tor is eas­ily a match for the Brit’s with more cubes, power and torque, but its over-damped fork and un­der-sprung rear end has al­ways let it down. So we’re re­ally look­ing for­ward to this. It’s a shame it doesn’t have the colour dash from the MT10 SP to add an ex­tra layer of Spe­cial­ness, but if the price is right, it could be a win­ner.

Wel­come to the Dark­side, SP style
