“From 2010 all the way to when the MT-09 came out in 2013 were test­ing times for us. Yamaha didn’t re­ally have any­thing ex­cit­ing or tempt­ing in the range. As soon as the MTs came along though, things took off. When any­one rode ei­ther the MT-09 or MT-07 they wanted to buy it, even with­out try­ing the other bike. They were an in­stant hit. The pric­ing was also right and we can eas­ily sell them new or used. The MT-10 is re­ally good for us too. It’s an amaz­ing bike, with the elec­tron­ics re­ally help­ing you get the best out of it. With­out the MTs we prob­a­bly would have started look­ing at an­other fran­chise. They’ve made a mas­sive dif­fer­ence to us. We’ve or­dered plenty of the new MT-09 SPs, and I’m con­fi­dent we’ll sell ev­ery one.”
