“The MT range has been a huge suc­cess for us. Be­fore they came along, we used to sell loads of R1s and R6s, but for the fu­ture we needed bikes to suit a broader range of cus­tomers. The MTs have served us per­fectly well in that re­spect. They helped change the im­age of the brand, tak­ing away the ex­pen­sive sports­bike fo­cus. MTs are great for older rid­ers and those new to bikes, which are the core these days. The MT-09 was a game-changer and every­thing that came af­ter was also re­ally, re­ally pop­u­lar. Trac­ers are very good for us. They’re a great pack­age. We do very well with the MT-10s too, as they suit for­mer sports­bike rid­ers well. MT-125s are also a great seller. All MTs are good news, new and used. The range of­fers some­thing for ev­ery­one. There’s been noth­ing quite like it in re­cent years, and it’s prob­a­bly saved many Yamaha deal­ers go­ing else­where.”
