‘A winner, if the price is right’
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.
