The Dark Side of Japan never sleeps. It’s the inspiration behind every Yamaha MT. And the exclusive MT-09 SP is the latest masterpiece to emerge from the Darkness. Featuring exclusive R1M-inspired colours, as well as premium suspension and cruise control, the ultimate 3-cylinder Hyper Naked is ready to inspire and excite.
Its 889cc EU5 CP3 engine produces even more linear torque at lower rpm for awesome acceleration, while its R1-type 6-axis IMU and lean-sensitive electronic rider aids give you precision control in both wet and dry conditions. And with fully adjustable 41mm front forks and a high-specification Öhlins rear shock, the all-new chassis is sharper than ever.
In addition to exclusive Icon Performance colours, the MT-09 SP comes with a special double-stitched seat for ultimate fit. Moreover, the brushed anodised swingarm, anodised black handlebars and levers and clear-smoked brake reservoirs add to the model’s premium looks and feel.
Back in 2013, Yamaha changed the landscape of the motorcycle world with the introduction of the original MT-09. With its sharp focus on linear torque, lightweight agility and fierce, naked looks, the bike was an instant success. Over the next decade, the MT Hyper Naked range grew rapidly – and to complete the line-up, the exclusive SP model was created.
